Conservatives Should Sign Meadows's Letter to Defund Obamacare

Blog Articles · Jul 23, 2013 · Budget and Spending

Yesterday, Heritage Action announced it would key vote co-sponsorship of the Defund Obamacare Act, introduced by Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA). In the key vote, we said "Representatives should co-sponsor the Defund Obamacare Act AND tie it to a "must-pass" bill, such as the year-end funding bill."

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is circulating a letter in the House to that effect. The letter urges Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to take the steps necessary to defund Obamacare in its entirety, including on a year-end funding bill like a continuation resolution (CR).

Heritage Action supports the Meadows letter and urges all lawmakers to sign the letter.
