Tonight, my Democratic colleagues and I are voting "yes" to end the shutdown and avert default on our debts with no changes to the President's health care law. The measure will be signed into law. The 16-day shutdown is over. But it cost the American economy and the American people $24 billion - for nothing, just a GOP political agenda to attack Obama and try to stop Americans from getting health care. Shame. Shame. And more shame on the Republican Party. Democrats stood united against this reckless hostage scheme. Express your support here.
House Republicans will cast their 40th vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act this week. This law took almost 100 years to enact, to finally ensure that all Americans have access to affordable health care.
