Move to Defund Obamacare Loses Momentum

"The GOP drive to defund Obamacare is leaking oil," National Journal reports.

"From the leaders of the GOP establishment to usual tea-party allies, a growing number of Republicans are splitting with movement conservatives who are pushing to shut down the federal government if funding is not cut off for President Obama's health care law at the end of September."

"The growing concern is that the tea-party activists and a handful of senators, led by the troika of Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) are marching into battle without a plan for victory short of Obama reversing himself on his signature domestic achievement--an almost unimaginable outcome."
