Mike Lee Offers Two Ways Senate Can Pass House Bill Without Reid Funding Obamacare

Whatever it takes to get rid of this mess.

During a colloquy aiding Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his filibuster-like Senate floor speech Tuesday evening, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) challenged the assertion that Senate Republicans must vote for cloture to support the House-passed continuing resolution (CR) that defunds Obamacare, offering two alternative methods for passage which preserve that element of the legislation.

“Now, it’s interesting that what we’re discussing here today, much of what we’ve been discussing today has been on the upcoming cloture vote,” Lee said. “There have been those who have argued that if you want to support the continuing resolution passed by the House of Representatives—remember, this is the continuing resolution that will keep our federal government funded while defunding Obamacare—if you want to support that, that you must vote yes on the cloture vote on the bill.”
