Sen. McConnell Says He Will Oppose Obamacare Filibuster

Splitting with Sen. Cruz


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Monday broke with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and said he will oppose a filibuster of House legislation defunding ObamaCare.

McConnell said he will not block the bill from coming to a final vote because it includes language to strip funding from President Obama's signature healthcare law while keeping current government funding levels in place.
