Has Missouri Senator Roy Blunt Gone Wobbly on Obamacare? (Updated)
Maverick Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz (TPM)
Senate Republicans are floating an idea to defund the unpopular and disastrous Affordable Care Act in the upcoming budget negotiations. Obamacare will kill off at least 2.3 Million full-time American jobs and put one million Americans on welfare.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) proposed a bill this week to prohibit the funding of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is escalating the push by circulating a letter promising not to vote to fund the government after Sept. 30 if Obamacare is not fully defunded.
Here is what conservative activists should pay attention to. I have obtained the complete list of current signatures to Mike Lee’s letter. Likewise, Ted Cruz has legislation that would defund Obamacare. I have a list of the sponsors of that legislation. We should keep track to see who pulls their name off Mike Lee’s letter and who pulls their name off Ted Cruz’s bill. Additionally, several Senators are either on the letter or the bill, but not both. We should pressure them to be on both.
As it stands now, here is the list that I have confirmed and we should all be vigilant against Senate GOP Leadership pressure:
ON BOTH THE LEE LETTER AND THE TED CRUZ BILL TO DEFUND: Do These Republican Senators Support Obamacare?
ON LETTER, NOT ON BILL
ON BILL, NOT ON LETTER
Call these people and ask that they sign the Mike Lee letter. It is important to get their signatures on that letter or we can presume they will fund Obamacare.
