Tea Party Express slams Reid, Senate vote; urges House to listen to the voters

Urges House to act responsibly and listen to the voters

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, expressed disappointment over the Senate Democrats’ decision to strip the defunding of Obamacare from the House’s bi-partisan continuing resolution.
Tea Party Express was proud of the efforts by Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Mike Lee to fight against Obamacare until the last vote.

“It is disappointing, but not surprising that Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats had to resort to name-calling and fear tactics in order to pass a continuing resolution plagued with Obamacare,” said Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer. “If Reid thinks Tea Party leaders like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are ‘anarchists,’ you have to wonder what low regard he holds our Founding Fathers who also challenged the status quo.”

Kremer continued, “Now the House is being faced with a bill plagued by Obamacare and a Senate unwilling to listen to the American people. We’re urging our representatives to find inspiration and courage from the words of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. We trust they can find a sensible solution that allows America to avoid the Obamacare train wreck, while fully funding the federal government.”
