Cruz to Senate GOP: ‘A Vote for Cloture Is a Vote for Obamacare’
This is going to get ugly. The only problem is to think about how ugly it will get under ObamaCare
Check it out:
On Fox News Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) will want to use “brute political force” to insert Obamacare funding into the House bill next week with a 51-vote threshold and any Republican who supports a cloture vote for that will be supporting Obamacare.
Cruz said that “no pundit in Washington thought it was possible” until last week that the House would pass a bill to defund Obamacare, and that is why Republicans need to unite to support the House bill and ensure Reid does not insert an amendment to add Obamacare funding to the continuing resolution that the House passed last Friday. That resolution funds the government except for Obamacare, which Senators like Cruz and Mike Lee (R-UT) had been insisting for months, even as establishment Republicans resisted and demeaned their efforts. Congress and President Barack Obama must agree to a resolution to fund the government before October 1 to prevent a shutdown.
Cruz said Reid wants to use “brute political power to force Obamacare funding through with just Democrats” like he passed Obamacare three years ago.
