Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) issued this statement today following his vote in favor of the bipartisan passage of HR 2775, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014:“Last night, I voted in favor of a plan to reopen our government, maintain historic spending cuts, and remove the threat of default. Under this bill, historic spending cuts will remain in place and taxes will not increase. For the first time in more than fifty years, federal spending will decrease for two years in a row.
“Regrettably, the Senate and President refused to level the playing field on Obamacare. While I supported repeated measures to end the special exemptions and carve outs that the politically connected continue to receive from this Administration, the Senate and President rejected these attempts and even refused to agree to make the President live under a health care law he created.
“I will continue to work to rein in spending, address the true drivers of our debt and repeal this job-killing law.”
