Cruz, others press effort to deny funds to health reform law

August 2, 2013

Despite warnings from their own party leaders, a breakaway group of conservative Republicans pushed ahead Thursday with a plan to defund President Obama’s new health care law as part of an upcoming spending battle, even as administration officials assured Congress they will be ready to implement the health reforms on time.

Outspoken senators and House members huddled with tea party activists outside the Capitol and challenged Congress to pass a short-term spending plan in September that provides no money for President Obama’s signature law. Failure to pass the spending package could lead to a government shutdown.

They demonized the overhaul as a “job-killer,” a “huge train wreck” and a “flesh-eating bacteria” that’s even managed to alienate some Democrats and labor unions.

“Now is the single best time and best opportunity to defeat Obamacare,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican. “No. 2, this is a fight that we can win. And No. 3, only the American people can win this.”
