Morning Bell: Standing Against Obamacare

Posted By Amy Payne On September 25, 2013 @ 6:48 am In Front Page,Obamacare | Comments Disabled

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) stood on the Senate floor yesterday to speak against Obamacare. He kept speaking all night and well into the morning.

***UPDATE: He is still going as of 10:30 a.m. ET!

Why? Because Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) wants to use procedural tricks to strip the House-passed bill of the provision that would defund Obamacare.

Reid wants to cut off debate and strong-arm funding for Obamacare, just as he strong-armed passage of this unfair, unworkable, and unaffordable bill three years ago. But if all the Senators who say they oppose Obamacare stand up to him—and stand together—they can stop him from funding Obamacare.

Share these highlights from last night’s speech on the Senate floor.
