Lee: Democrats Lack Will To Close Gov’t & Not Pay Soldiers Over Obamacare Defunding Fight

Sen. Mike LeeSenator Mike Lee (R-Utah), who is pushing to defund any further funding of Obamacare in the upcoming spending measure to keep the government running into the new fiscal year,  said Democrats lack the political will to shut the government down over Obamacare — and risk not paying U.S. soldiers, among other issues  — because the public does not support such divisive politics.

In speaking about the issue on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Monday, Lee said, “We’re saying the House should pass something that says we fund everything else in government but this does not include Obamacare funding, and we’re stopping all discretionary spending with this bill.  We then have another vote where they could try to insert Obamacare funding, and that’s not going to pass.”
