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.
Mitch McConnell and John CornynBreitbart 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.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Senate Republicans to Stand With Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, Not Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn
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
DontFundObamacare.comWe 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.
You can find the list of senators at DontFundObamacare.com along with their contact information and where they currently stand on this issue.
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.
Free Republic has a stellar history of showing up when needed. Let’s do it again, call, email, Tweet, Facebook, anyway we can let’s bury them.
The house does not have to accept the changes. They can fund individual parts of government one at a time and leave out ZeroCare. They will have to fight using every means or we will be a communist dictatorship.
I will be greatly surprised if Boehner did not cave.
Isn’t this part of the “vote for it so you can vote against it” parliamentary trick/ruse that Marc Steyn explained on the Not-Rush-Limbaugh show yesterday?
That’s not news. We all knew that would happen, we just didn’t know when.
I predict that before Saturday the House will accept the Senates version.
The real vote on defunding is tomorrow, when Reid will call for cloture, which requires 60 votes. If all 46 GOP senators vote “no”, Reid would have to have 60 votes to strip out the House language defunding ObamaCare. If the GOP votes with Reid to give him cloture, all he needs is 51 Democrat votes to strip defunding from the CR. When the second vote happens, it makes no difference that McConnell and McCain and other traitors vote “no” because Reid has enough Democrat votes anyway. The first vote tomorrow is the one that matters . The second vote later is a CYA vote for the GOP traitors to put in campaign ads and means absolutely nothing except that they are liars.
Do we stand together against the forces of tyranny?
If ever there was a time to do so, it is now.
We will never be stronger than we are now.
Senator John Cornyn is the Republican Minority Whip to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
These two men control how yalls interests are represented in the US Senate.
Both Cornyn and McConnell have pledged to oppose the efforts of Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to defund Obamacare.
To oppose Cornyn and any other Old-Style Republican, please contact them early and often.
Below is the contact information for Senator Cornyn.
BTW, an Old-Style Republican is one who always surrenders before a fight, because a better time to fight is always some time in the future, away from the fog of the controversy.
Strike a blow for THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY !

Flipping Republicans had better realize what this means to Americans. Either they stand united in the fight or they WILL BE OPPOSED come reelection time and the National Republican Party will be DEFUNDED!!
Thanks, I’ll be calling and often.
I love your passion, that’s my dream, to rekindle America’s passion. We’ve lost so many battles and many have lost hope but that can only lead to a real takeover of America. We need to rise up and fight. The people don’t want this law yet our government is forcing it on us.
It has to stop and we can still stop it. Call, write, fight!
Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are the only two Republicans in the US Senate who CONSISTENTLY make an effort to actually CONSERVE, in my humble, but usually correct opinion.
Therefore, use those two Senators to compare and contrast the present opponents to Old-Style Republican Cornyn.
My guess is that someone on the TEXAS PING list personally knows a superb future Senate candidate, cut from the same cloth as Cruz and Lee.
Yep, it is a dirty job, but we need to reach out to these future candidates, and ask them to run for Federal office for the good of their children, grandchildren and their descendants.
What we have here, is failure to communicate. ( Warden in movie Cool Hand Luke.)
We claim to be Conservatives, but what are we focused on Conserving?
Where are the men and women that are willing to be candidates to conserve what we want conserved?
The New Republican Party starts when YOU step up and act.
What has each of us done to encourage and recruit men and women to be candidates to conserve what is left of our State or Country?
How have we failed to communicate?
I’m from Texas. I called his DC office today and his mailbox was full. I called his Houston office several times and the line was always busy. Maybe Cornyn already knows he has made a big mistake. Hope so.
Unfortunately not likely. The Rino jerks who refuse to help present a united front against the obamabots will have to be defeated at the polls.
This Obamacare fight has shown us who in the Republican Party will be in The New Republican Party.
So far, my counting of them in the US Senate has not required removal of either one of my socks - - - .
I would love to see Ted Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz run against the traitor Cornyn.
I have emailed my Republican senators that I expect them to support Cruz and I have emailed Ted Cruz to keep fighting
Cornyn is a pure RINO. It is past time for the old phony to go home.
another day another fight! I’ll be on the phone and emailing most of the day! It appears the response from conservative/normal folks is having an affect. Keep up the good work folks!!!!
SAY IT OVER AND OVER! you are exactly correct!
