Yesterday I appeared on CBS News Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer to discuss Republican efforts in Congress to prevent a government shutdown and my legislation to delay Obamacare for one year, which was included as part of the Continuing Resolution approved by the House of Representatives early Sunday morning. In case you missed it, you can watch the video of my interview here.
Right now, roughly 30 House Republicans are driving the bus in Washington. Along with Sen. Ted Cruz, they have been the “titanium backbone,” as Rep. Marsha Blackburn likes to call it, in the effort to defund Obamacare. They have stood their ground and helped bring the government to a halt. This is either an act of lunacy or a shining example of standing for conservative principle.
