Beware of Backroom Last-Minute Obamacare Funding Deal
Conservatives need to keep demanding ObamaCare be defunded.

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin warned conservatives on Sunday evening that they should be wary of a potential move from House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to fund Obamacare in a Continuing Resolution (CR) at the last minute as the fiscal year is ending.
“I think that when we are dealing with people who have continually and repeatedly made backroom deals and voted under the cover of darkness over and over and over and over, that we have to expect that that’s what they’re going to do again,” Martin said in an appearance on Breitbart News Sunday with Stephen K. Bannon on Sunday night. “We must watch and keep the pressure on and do everything that we can to make sure that does not happen.”
Technically, unless Cantor abruptly ends a long-planned scheduled recess week as he has publicly suggested he might, there are only five working days for the House left in September before the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30. At that time, Congress needs to pass a new CR and the president needs to sign it or the government will shut down.
