Wait, what’s he going to do?
Via CNS News:
Speaking at a rally to demand Congress ends the government shutdown on Friday, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said he is “committed to the Affordable Care Act,” and he “will come back in the afterlife” to fight for it.
In his closing remarks he said: “My followers, listen friends. I am committed to the Affordable Care Act, and I just want you to know this: if for some reason I should have an untimely demise, I want you to know that not only am I going to fight for the Affordable Care Act in this life, I will come back in the afterlife. I will haunt the Congress of the United States of America.”
Prior to the government shutdown, the House passed numerous continuing resolutions that included language to defund Obamacare or delay the individual mandate.
The rally was sponsored by the National Treasury Employees Union. In a statement on their website, the NTEU applauds the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act, but says the House should bring the Senate-passed Clean CR up for a vote.
