Senator Ted Cruz Stabbed in Back by Mitch McConnell and Old Rhinos In Wheelchairs

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), in opposition to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and other conservatives, said he will not support a filibuster of the continuing resolution (CR) that also defunds Obamacare, and will instead vote for cloture, which will allow the bill to be amended and voted on with a simple 51-vote majority - the Democrats hold 52 seats in the Senate and caucus with 2 independents, giving them a 54-seat majority...........

Cruz (said in part) "If it is the Majority Leader's intent to fund Obamacare using just 51 votes, then I would submit to every Republican in this body it is our obligation to our constituents to do everything we can to prevent the Majority Leader from funding Obamacare with just 51 votes. Any member of this body that votes for cloture on this bill will be voting to allow the Majority Leader to fund Obamacare on 51 votes. I think that vote's a mistake. I think that vote disserves our constituents. I think that vote hurts the people of America." -
