This is an urgent update on the fight to stop funding Obamacare.
Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) — the top two Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate — announced yesterday that they will support "cloture" on the government funding bill, giving Harry Reid and the Democrats a procedural green light to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.
Breitbart News is reporting that McConnell and Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) in their effort to defund Obamacare.
According to a senior staffer quoted in the news report, "Nobody is fighting harder to make sure Obamacare is funded than Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn."
This is the ultimate betrayal.
We knew Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn weren’t with us when they voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year. But then, under pressure from grassroots, they said they supported the effort to defund it. They even ran political ads in their home states to make voters think they were on their side.
But now, faced with the prospect of having to fight for the things they claim to believe, these Senate leaders have surrendered.
Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn have surrendered to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and the Democrats. More importantly, they have surrendered to Obamacare — the biggest job killer in America.
MELT THE PHONES
We can’t let these turncoats force millions of Americans into this liberal train wreck.
Obamacare is unaffordable, unworkable, and it’s unfair.
Please contact the other Republican senators — even if they aren’t from your state — and urge them to OPPOSE cloture so the Democrats can’t fund Obamacare.

It’s very important for you to call senators today and urge them to stand with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the fight to stop funding Obamacare.
Time is running out. Obamacare begins in just one week. We must act now.
This country belongs to us, not the politicians in Washington. Let’s make sure they hear us loud and clear.
