McConnell Doesn’t Commit to All Options Against Reid in Obamacare Fight
We need to flood congress with elected conservative this year so that the wimps will be gone.
Check it out:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will not commit to use all the resources available to him and other Republicans to force Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s hand on a vote to fund all of the federal government but the Affordable Care Act, Breitbart News has learned.
The House passed a continuing resolution (CR) Friday that defunds Obamacare and funds the government for the next few months. The Senate will likely take up the measure next week, but Reid is expected to use an amendment procedural trick to strip the House’s CR of its Obamacare defunding language, a move that McConnell could stop if he really wanted to.
Reid could remove the Obamacare defunding language from the bill in two ways. The first is if he introduces an amendment before the Senate votes on cloture for the House CR. That would require a 60-vote threshold, and McConnell’s spokesman Don Stewart told Breitbart News that if Reid attempted that tactic, all Senate Republicans would stand together to block it.
