But for Cruz’s effort to have teeth, the Republican senators must all be committed to absolutely refusing to vote for any spending bill that contains funding for ObamaCare. Senator Mike Lee is leading the charge to get his colleagues to commit to this approach, by putting their signatures to a letter affirming that they will refuse to vote for a CR that contains ObamaCare funding.
Support for the Cruz bill is absolutely meaningless without also signing Mike Lee’s letter. Harry Reid and his Democrats will have no incentive to compromise unless they know the Republicans are willing to take a hard stance – even shutting the government down, if necessary – in order to stop the catastrophically unworkable and unaffordable health care law from taking effect this January.
But Republican leadership is either afraid or unwilling to defund ObamaCare, and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is personally leading the effort to keep senators away from Lee’s letter. He has even succeeded in convincing five Republicans who had signed to take their names off the letter.
This cannot stand. Republicans have spent the last three years working to get rid of this unpopular, unaffordable, unworkable law, and there is no excuse for giving up now.
Below is the list of Republican Senators and where they stand on the Cruz bill and the Lee letter.
