Surprise: Conservatives Like New GOP Plan to Pretend-Defund Obamacare
Activists on the right have reacted with war whoops and cheers to the House GOP’s tired embrace of the “defund Obamacare” continuing resolution. Among them: Amy Kremer of Tea Party Express, whose email to supporters is titled “WE DID IT.”
This is a huge victory for the Tea Party and once again proves that we are a strong force and won’t be ignored. While we won this battle, the war it not over. Once the continuing resolution that defunds Obamacare is passed by the House, it will go over to the Harry Reid and Democrat-controlled Senate for vote. Once this happens, we are going to need your help to put pressure on the Democrats and moderate Republicans in the Senate to pass it as well. Many of these members are up for re-election in 2014, and we will need to leverage that heavily.
