Democratic Congressman Sander Levin released the following statement Friday after Republicans took the first step toward a government shutdown by passing a continuing resolution that would also defund the Affordable Care Act. The measure, which passed, 230-189, now goes to the Democrat-led Senate.
“House Republicans are charting a course toward chaos, led by their obsession with keeping big health insurers in charge of Americans’ health care. They have closed their eyes to reality and shut their ears even to many of their staunchest allies – including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – who have urged them not plunge our nation into the abyss. Their blind ideology now threatens the economic well-being of all Americans.”
