Tea party senator Mike Lee would rather shut down the government than implement Obamacare

July 23, 2013

Appearing Monday morning on “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said he and a handful of fellow Republican senators are preparing to go all-out to stop the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, up to and including refusing to pass a bill funding the government if it includes funding for the individual mandate. “Right now, this is the last stop before Obamacare fully kicks in on Jan. 1 of next year, for us to refuse to fund it,” he said, adding that just over a dozen other senators are with him on doing everything in their power to block the Affordable Care Act.
