For Immediate Release:

Congressman Pittenger on MSNBC, CNN, and BBC Today Regarding Shutdown and Debt Ceiling Votes

    It is a shame that the Republicans did not have the intestinal fortitude to stay the course, and the result is that you (Republicans) will be blamed for the shut down.

    If it was up to me everyone of you would be fired for not standing up and doing what the Constitution requires. You know obamacare is unconstitutional and you have the right and the obligation to defund it and you caved, and ostensibly for political reasons.

    I'm ashamed.

    Dear Friend:

    As I predicted, House Republicans failed in their efforts to defund or reform Obamacare. As I stated at six town halls this summer, this was a noble objective, but an ill-fated strategy. After we were able to secure funding for the military, I was then willing to bring to the country the failures of nationalizing healthcare. President Obama, as I stated this summer, would fight for his signature legislation, even with rising premiums, job losses, and accelerating costs deemed "unsustainable" by the Congressional Budget Office.

    Regrettably, now we will raise the debt limit with no spending offsets. We must address recurring deficit spending, a $17 Trillion debt and $60 Trillion in unfunded entitlement mandates or we will fiscally collapse like Greece.

    Please note the interviews I gave on MSNBC, CNN, and BBC today regarding the shutdown and debt ceiling vote. (MSNBC) (CNN) (BBC)

    Thank-you for your friendship and support.
