Senator Ted Cruz Introduced Amendment To Defund Obamacare



The House may have passed a continuing resolution that contains Obamacare funding, but Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced  an amendment that would remove the funding. I’m not particularly hopeful that the amendment will pass with Democrats running the show, but at least he’s trying.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced an amendment this morning to the continuing resolution, which would keep the government funded past March 27, that would defund Obamacare.

Obamacare has already damaged the economy by reducing employee hours, forcing employers to drop health insurance coverage and creating a drag on job creation, Cruz said.

“If Obamacare is fully implemented, it will create an even further drag on the economy, killing jobs and making it harder for those struggling to climb the economic ladder,” he said in a statement. (Read More)

Cruz was joined by Senator Mike Lee in the call to defund Obamacare.

Cruz is also assisting Senator Rand Paul in his epic filibuster against Obama’s domestic drone program. I like both of them more every day.
