The House of Representatives must keep “standing strong” in its fight to defund Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Friday during a speech at the Values Voter Summit.
“Listen, in my view nobody knows what the House of Representatives is going to do in this Obamacare fight right now,” Cruz said. “In my view it’s to keep doing what it’s been doing which is standing strong. And that is the model for every other fight. We need no other Washington solutions we need to go back to the American people.”
The comments come a day after senior House Republicans met with President Barack Obama to discuss a short-term government funding deal. No deal resulted from that meeting. Cruz, along with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) were the major backers of an effort to fund the government only if Obamacare was defunded. Lee spoke earlier at the Values Voter Summit and Paul spoke right after Cruz.
