Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is offering an amendment that would prohibit federal employees from taking taxpayer-funded subsidies to pay for ObamaCare health insurance.
The Senate voted September 27 to pass a continuing resolution that restores funding for ObamaCare that the House of Representatives had denied in its version.
House Republicans are maintaining their position on the healthcare law and are launching what is dubbed a “two-front war” on ObamaCare. One week after the House passed a bill that defunds ObamaCare, they are attempting to take a vote this weekend on a bill that would delay the healthcare law in exchange for agreeing to raise the debt ceiling.
“I rise today in opposition to ObamaCare,”declared Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as he began his marathon speech against the president's healthcare law Tuesday afternoon. He continued, “I intend to speak in support of defunding ObamaCare until I am no longer able to stand.”
