Maloney Statement on Continuing Resolution
Washington, D.C. - Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney released the following statement regarding the Continuing Resolution (CR) in the U.S. House of Representatives:
“Passing a bill to keep our government running isn’t a game and should not be this controversial; it’s time for this Congress to get it done. I was sent here to partner with folks who were willing to work to get results for my Hudson Valley neighbors, and last night, I did everything I could to prevent a shutdown. We cannot gamble with the lives and livelihoods of hardworking Americans, and I will continue to work to avert this manufactured crisis and protect senior’s Social Security claims, small businesses, veteran’s benefits, and homeowners.”
In recent days, Rep. Maloney has voted against several attempts to defund or delay the implementation of Obamacare, but voted to ensure that Members of Congress and their staff receive no federal contributions to cover their healthcare costs under Obamacare.
“Families and businesses in the Hudson Valley are not getting special subsidies from Obamacare and neither should Members of Congress or the White House,” concluded Rep. Maloney.
Rep Maloney also voted to support delaying penalties for both individuals and businesses saying, “I strongly support the President’s decision to give employers more time to comply with the law, and I believe that we should give families the same flexibility we’re giving to our small businesses.”
If any folks from the Hudson Valley have questions about what the federal government shutting down would mean for them, Rep. Maloney encourages constituents to visit his website, e-mail or call his office at 202-225-5441 or 845-561-1259.
