Reid, Cruz Begin Direct Sparring Over Obamacare

Expect fighting all week

|

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) threw the first punches Monday in what is likely to be a weeklong slugfest over ObamaCare. 

Cruz asked for unanimous consent to pass the House continuing resolution that would fund the government while stripping money for ObamaCare, but Reid objected.

Cruz then tried to call up the measure and hold all amendment votes to a 60-vote threshold — and Reid objected to that as well.
