Another member of the surrender caucus (Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL 2)) is saying that she opposes efforts to force a defunding of Obamacare in the CR saying:
U.S. Rep. Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, explained today why she opposes a government shutdown to block Obama Care. Roby, who spoke to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, said she has voted many times to repeal the law, but that the government shutdown is not the right approach. She said Congress needs to find ways to curb the growth of non-discretionary spending programs, such as Medicare and food stamps.
“We need to be looking holistically at mandatory spending,” Roby said.
LLPH agrees with Rep. Roby that more spending needs to be cut, but she needs to fight to defund Obamacare in the Continuing Resolution. We need to encourage her to change her mind and join with conservatives and FIGHT!
