HRP Chairman Calls for Senate to Act

News Release from Hawaii Republican Party October 1, 2013

HONOLULU- Hawaii Republican Party (HRP) Chairman David Chang released the following statement today on the continuing resolution being debated by the House and Senate:

“It’s October 1st and the people of Hawaii woke up to learn that their government has failed. Thousands of federal workers were told to stay home indefinitely without pay, while Senate Democrats refuse to come to the table with House Republicans to compromise and pass a budget to end this government shutdown.

The House has continually been reaching out to the Senate Democrats and President Obama to pass a resolution to ensure everyone receives equal treatment, no special interests receive exemptions from Obamcare, and small businesses have the time needed to make sure they are prepared for the new healthcare law. The House has been willing to offer a compromise with Senate Democrats to do what’s best for the American people. Harry Reid, along with our Hawaii Senators Schatz and Hirono, has unfortunately stood in the way and allowed Americans to suffer.

On Day One of Obamacare, polls continue to show its unpopularity among Americans and software glitches have prevented people in Hawaii and across the nation from accessing the health exchange programs, a critical component of the new law. The individual mandate is already forcing some employers to cut back the hours of their workers, hurting our economy.  I believe the House is willing to offer a compromise to avoid a long-term federal government shutdown and I call on Senate Democrats to work with them.”

The HRP also urged voters to call the offices of Senator Schatz (202-224-3934) and Senator Hirono (202-224-6361) to ask them to take action today and end the government shutdown.
