Cruz Says GOP Not Willing to Defund Obamacare

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blamed his fellow Republicans for not being willing to use the resolution that funds the government to cripple the president's health-care law, NBC News reports.

Said Cruz: "The problem right now is we don't have Republicans willing to stand up and do this. We need 41 Republicans in the Senate or 218 Republicans in the House, to stand together, to join me, to join Mike Lee, to join Marco Rubio, all of whom have said, we will not vote for a single continuing resolution that funds even a penny of ObamaCare."

He added: "The current continuing resolution, which funds the government, expires Sept. 30. So now is the window: if we're going to defund Obamacare, now is the time we can actually get it done."
