Senator Mike Lee
President Barack Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union address Tuesday night to Congress. But on the Republican side, at least four responses to the presidents speech will be delivered by members of the GOP.
Senator Marco Rubio will join with fellow tea party Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to vote against the budget passed by the GOP-led House of Representatives that will fund the government and defund the discretionary spending in the Affordable Care Act.
The plan concocted by Senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee to either defund the Affordable Care Act or shut down the government appears to be on its last leg after it passed the GOP-led House of Representatives last week.
The plan originally hatched by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Utah Senator Mike Lee to either shutdown the government or default on the debt limit if the Affordable Care Act isn’t defunded is fracturing the Republican Party ahead of key fiscal deadlines.
Senator Marco Rubio’s plan to shut down the government if Congress doesn’t defund the Affordable Care Act is going up in smoke in the nation’s capital.
