Senator Lee Willing to Shut Down Government to Defund Obamacare
(KUTV) Utah Senator Mike Lee has a plan to stop the Affordable Care Act, but it might shut down the Federal government.
Lee says he hopes to work with Republicans to defund the act by taking it completely out of the Federal budget. He says Democrats might refuse to agree to do it, but he wants to put them in a situation where they have to choose between Obamacare and keeping the government running.
Mitt Romney and other leading Republicans have said Lee’s plan won’t work because a shutdown would just make Americans mad at Republicans.
