Gov’t Back Open Despite GOP “No” Votes

The federal government is back in business this morning, after President Obama signed a bill passed by Congress to avoid a default and end a 16-day partial government shutdown.

The West Texas Congressional delegation was untied in their opposition against the funding bill, with Representatives Mac Thornberry, Mike Conaway and Randy Neugebauer voted against the debt ceiling increase.

All of the Representatives released similar statements saying they did not support funding the government until January 15th and increasing the debt limit until February 7.

In a statement, Neugebauer said he believes the current level of debt is dangerous for the country’s economy and he’s disappointed in the agreement that he says doesn’t do more to protect American families from the high costs of Obamacare.

The funding bill passed was signed by President Obama late last night.
