Breitbart.com reports Friday morning the number of Republican "No" votes on the Continuing Resolution cloture vote is nearing 30. Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are leading the effort to secure 41 votes to stop the Democrats from amending the proposal to strip out the part of the bill that defunds Obamacare. From Breitbart.com:
According to sources on the Hill, there is growing support among Senate Republicans to support Sens. Cruz and Lee's efforts to scuttle Sen. Harry Reid's attempt to reinstate ObamaCare funding in the House Continuing Resolution. On Friday, the Senate is set to vote for cloture on the CR, which, if successful, will then allow Reid to resurrect ObamaCare funding with a simple majority. The effort by Cruz and Lee will most likely fail, but each additional GOP Senator that joins their block is another vote against Senate GOP Leadership.
