The U.S. House leadership announced Tuesday that they will soon vote on a continuing resolution ("CR") that keeps government running while protecting the sequester spending caps and defunding Obamacare.

Americans for Tax Reform supports this CR strategy.

The CR preserves the sequester caps while allowing lawmakers to finish their work on spending bills for FY 2014.

Over the summer, dozens of free market groups and over 60 members of Congress went on record urging the House to send the Senate a CR that defunds Obamacare.

The CR strategy unveiled this week does just that. The House will take a single vote on a CR that has language defunding the Obamacare law. Furthermore, this CR forces the Senate to — for the first time — vote on Obamacare defunding.

ATR urges all senators to vote to defund Obamacare. Any substantive hope for Obamacare defunding has always rested with the Senate. Now the American people will get their chance to hold their elected officials accountable.

It's up to the Senate to act.

ATR is part of a broad coalition of free market groups that has pushed lawmakers to take this vote. It's a victory for the conservative movement that both the House and the Senate will have to go on record deciding whether or not to defund Obamacare in the CR.

Grover Norquist is president of Americans for Tax Reform, a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals, and businesses opposed to higher taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. The coalition organizes the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which asks all candidates for federal and state office to commit themselves in writing to oppose all tax increases.
