Speaking on Fox News, Lee said Republicans determined that refusing to fund Obamacare was the "last stop" before the individual mandate and the law's health insurance exchanges are set to go into effect at the beginning of next year.Hell, what's one more hostage? We've got the budget, we've got the debt ceiling, and now we've got the mechanism Congress has had to use to keep the federal government's lights on—the continuing resolution. It's sort of shocking that they didn't already get there: It is the surest way to finish the job they've started and to reach their ultimate goal of destroying the federal government.
“Congress of course has to pass a law to continue funding government—lately we’ve been doing that through a funding mechanism called a continuing resolution," Lee said. "If Republicans in both houses simply refuse to vote for any continuing resolution that contains further funding for further enforcement of Obamacare, we can stop it. We can stop the individual mandate from going into effect.”
Lee added that his effort, which he said was backed by "13 or 14" Senate Republicans and a host of House Republicans, wouldn't target popular Obamacare provisions that already had gone into effect, like a measure that allows children to remain on their parents' health insurance until the age of 26.
All because a lot more people will now be able to get more affordable health insurance.
