U.S. Rep. Tom Marino issues statement on budget battle

— WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-10, issued the following statement today after the House passed legislation to continue funding the National Institute of Health, re-open national parks and museums and ensure veterans continue to receive benefits and services:

“Unlike Democratic leaders in the Senate, who cannot comprehend the logic of continuing to fund critical cancer research and treatment programs, House Republicans passed legislation last night to guarantee the National Institute of Health could continue to conduct life-saving programs.

“Unlike our president, who would rather use taxpayer dollars and exceptional measures to prevent veterans from visiting the memorials raised in their honor, House Republicans passed legislation last night to ensure America’s national parks could remain open. Today, we voted to make sure these same veterans continue to receive the benefits and services they deserve.

“The Obama Administration has gone out of its way to barricade monuments, actively working to stop people from visiting them and even threatening veterans with arrest.  President Obama had more security keeping veterans from entering the World War II memorial than he did in Benghazi when our consulate was attacked by terrorists and three brave Americans were murdered.

“While Democrats in the Senate continue to use our nation’s veterans and seniors as political pawns, House Republicans remain committed to getting the federal government up and running again.”
