Is it that time again already??
It’s not even August, and Members of Congress are starting to buzz about the upcoming budget and debt ceiling fight—which likely won’t happen until later this fall. But the posturing has begun, and the media are happy to oblige.
The thing is, a government shutdown isn’t necessary—and lawmakers aren’t proposing a government shutdown.
What some are proposing is that Congress fund normal government activities, but refuse to fund Obamacare. The upcoming budget legislation, called a continuing resolution, is a decision point for Obamacare funding.
“Under no circumstances will I vote for a continuing resolution that funds even one single penny of Obamacare,” says Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). He and fellow Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), and Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Rand Paul (R-KY) are urging their colleagues to do the same.Related articles:
