Senator Threatens Shut Down to Stop Obamacare

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) declared that he and other congressional Republicans "would be willing to shut down the federal government in order to block further implementation of President Obama's health care reform law," the Huffington Post reports.

Said Lee: "Congress of course has to pass a law to continue funding government -- lately we've been doing that through a funding mechanism called a continuing resolution. If Republicans in both houses simply refuse to vote for any continuing resolution that contains further funding for further enforcement of Obamacare, we can stop it. We can stop the individual mandate from going into effect."
