Heritage Action Responds to Grand Bargain Chatter

Washington – Multiple reports suggest President Obama and some in Congress are hoping to leverage the government shutdown to engineer a grand bargain.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Washington has a notoriously short attention span.  The reason the federal government is shut down is because President Obama and his allies continue to protect a failed law that is hurting the country.  Their reckless behavior should not breathe life into misguided dreams for a grand bargain, which everyone understands is Washington-speak for undermining the sequester, increasing taxes and accumulating debt.  Congress should ensure not another dime of taxpayer money is spent on Obamacare.”
