Heritage Action Opposes, Will Key Vote GOP’s New Debt Limit Plan

October 15, 2013 1:34 p.m.

Heritage Action announced Tuesday that it will include the House GOP’s scheduled vote to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling Tuesday evening as a key vote in its scorecard, according to a statement.

The conservative lobbying organization opposes the bill, which would fund the government through Dec. 15, raise the debt ceiling through Feb. 7 and eliminate health care subsidies for the White House, Congress and their staff.

“Unfortunately, the proposed deal will do nothing to stop Obamacare’s massive new entitlements from taking root — radically changing the nature of American health care,” the group said in a statement.

Heritage Action said last week that it would not include a different bill that would have raised the debt ceiling without funding the government as a key vote.
