SENATOR TED CRUZ SAYS SENATE MAJORITY LEADER REID HAS THE VOTES TO STRIP OBAMACARE OUT T OF CR
There is an incindiary battle emerging between House Republicans and Senate Republicans.
Dozens of House Republicans are LIVID with Cruz and others for immediately putting this back in the GOPers court…after they engineered the idea to tie the CR to defunding health care.
“They’re waiving the white flag already,” said one GOP lawmaker.
“We expect them to stand and filibuster like Rand Paul,” fumed one senior House GOP aide,
“It’s time to put on the big boy pants,” said one House Republican who didn’t want to be identified. “Maybe this will wean us of the bed wetters.”
A senior GOP leadership aide said that they don’t expect this dissension to blow up the bill in the House on Frirday. But they are hot about where things are going now if the GOP senators don’t defend their turf.
