On Monday, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) announced he would lead an effort to defund Obamacare, in another desperate (and almost certainly unsuccessful) attempt to unravel the law. Lee’s plan involves blocking any continuing resolution or appropriations bill that would provide funding for the Affordable Care Act.
As of Tuesday, Lee only has 11 other GOP signers backing his effort.
Despite most Republicans’ desire to repeal Obamacare, most are not signing Lee’s letter. Actually, many GOP senators are doing more than simply not signing; they are completely rejecting constant urging from top conservatives like Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY).
Some are even speaking out against the effort publicly.
Read on to find out which GOP senators stand against Senator Lee in this latest GOP civil war.
