McIntyre says government needs to stay open, save health care debate for later

Monday, September 30th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With a government shutdown looming federal workers at Sunny Point in Brunswick County say they will hit the picket line if forced off the job tomorrow.

In the meantime, negotiations continue in Washington. The Senate today voted down a House bill that would have funded the government but defunded Obamacare.

Some supporters of that bill, including Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-7th District) say now is the time for compromise.

“That does no one any good for the government to shut down,” said McIntyre, who says he has voted 43 times against the president’s health care plan. “So we want to find a way to keep the government from shutting down. And it doesn’t mean there’s a compromise on the position on Obamacare or the medical device tax or any of these other issues that still need to be dealt with, but the bottom line is we have to keep the government open, because no one wins if the government shuts down.”

McIntyre said he and a bipartisan group of about 100 members called the No Labels Coalition have been working today on a deal to keep the government going and come back to the objections on health care later. Still, McIntyre says it’s about a 50-50 chance that Congress will reach a deal in time.

Rep. Walter Jones (R-3rd District) did not respond to our request for comment on the stalemate.
