Sen. McConnell Undecided on Obamacare Government Shutdown Threat

Not sure if he will allow the federal government to shutdown if the upcoming budget includes more money for Obamacare


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said Tuesday he has yet to decide whether to support a proposal to block government funding if it includes money for ObamaCare.

Tea Party Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) have ratcheted up the pressure on McConnell to threaten a government shutdown if Democrats refuse to relent on the healthcare overhaul.
