Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26) released the following statement on Congressman Tom Graves' continuing resolution, H.J.RES.62.

"Today, I was pleased to sign on as a co-sponsor to Representative Graves' continuing resolution. While the proposal is not perfect, it funds the government for a year but it delays and defunds the Affordable Care Act for that same year. The President's takeover of health care is fraught with problems. Even the administration and its allies in the labor unions now admit this. Clearly this is not the time to stifle economic recovery with the Affordable Care Act and this Graves bill prevents that from happening."
