The House has passed a bipartisan bill to accomplish two goals that are in line with the will of the American people: (a) end the ObamaCare train wreck by defunding it and (b) keep the government open and running. Now it’s up to the Senate to do the same.

Republicans want to keep the government running. Democrats claim they want the same, but they aren’t acting like it. By denouncing the House bill, Harry Reid has already said that he’s willing to shut down the government to save face for the president and to defend a failed law.

Republicans run the House and they’ve done their part: funding the government, defunding ObamaCare. If the Senate fails to do the same, it will be Democrats’ fault. If the government has to shut down, it will be their doing.

President Obama could’ve tried to work with the Senate toward a solution. But as has been the case for over four years, he refused to.

House Republicans produced and passed legislation to keep the government running. They’ve done the job Americans wanted. Now it’s up to the Democrat-run Senate. Now the #SenateMustAct.
