WASHINGTON - Neither of Illinois' U.S. Senators - Republican Mark Kirk nor Democrat Dick Durbin - nor any of Illinois' U.S. House delegation stood with Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz at his press conference Thursday afternoon, where he urged conservatives in Congress to "lock arms" to stop Obamacare from going into effect October 1.
"I will do everything necessary and anything possible to defund Obamacare," Cruz said.
Illinois' U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-14) announced Wednesday his support for Rep. Graves' effort to continue government funding, but cut Obamacare that has been promised a floor vote in the U.S. House Friday.
