Marino votes against re-opening government

“Going forward, the President’s healthcare law will fail on its own,” Marino said, “Americans will speak in greater numbers if they want to be freed from the burdens of Obamacare. When the American people speak loud enough, and Democrats are finally willing to work with Republicans to enact comprehensive healthcare reform that actually lowers the cost of insurance coverage, we will be ready to listen.”

Marino vowed to move forward on other priorities – lowering taxes, cutting spending, downsizing the federal government, creating jobs, and achieving energy independence. “House Republicans can develop a positive agenda for the coming year,” Marino said.

“Until public opposition to the President’s agenda results in a Senate willing to negotiate and compromise, the Republican-led House will continue to be a check against wasteful spending, tax hikes and the burdensome regulations this administration will surely look to impose on hardworking, middle class Americans across the country.”
