Republicans lack votes to defund Obamacare
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, acknowledged Sunday that his push to defund Obamacare - even if it means shutting down the federal government in the process - still lacks the votes to succeed in the Senate. "We do not have the votes right now," he said on CNN. "We need 41 Republicans in the Senate or we need 218 Republicans in the House." And to reach that threshold, Cruz admitted, it will take a "grassroots tsunami" pushing legislators to stand strong against the health-care reform law, come what may.
