Ryan: ‘One of Our Core Principles is Equality Under the Law’



Text  



House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan just issued a statement supporting the new House plan to attach a delay of the individual mandate to the government funding bill as well as cancelling a subsidy for lawmakers and their staffs to purchase health insurance in the exchange markets. 

“One of our core principles is equality under the law. The President gave special exemptions to big business, Congress, and his political allies. But he refused to give the same relief to working families. That is fundamentally unfair,” Ryan says. 

Full statement after the jump: 

Today we will vote once again to keep the federal government open. And we will vote to provide families relief from Obamacare.

One of our core principles is equality under the law. The President gave special exemptions to big business, Congress, and his political allies. But he refused to give the same relief to working families. That is fundamentally unfair. We will take action to give people the same relief the President gave big businesses, and we will take away the special deal for Congress. Will Senate Democrats close the government to protect an unfair deal?

We have an opportunity to help families in need and help grow the economy. I hope we can find willing partners on the other side of the aisle.
