Effort to Defund ObamaCare Tries to Regain Its Momentum

The Hill reports:
Conservatives will take their defund-ObamaCare push back to Washington, D.C., this week with an event to rally support and combat a wide shift in focus away from the issue.
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and a slew of House members and Tea Party leaders will host a rally Tuesday to pressure leaders not to pay for healthcare reform in the next bill to fund the government.
Of course, while defunding ObanaCare would be a good start, much more of government must be defunded. say 99% of it for starters, as opposed to the 1% in spending cuts per year for the next 5 years called for by Rand Paul. RP, Cruz and Lee need to be used as tools in the effort to prevent funding of ObamaCare, but these guys aren't by any stretch small government types.

A big problem with the defunding effort is that it doesn't seem to have much support. The Hill goes on:
A survey released Aug. 28 by the Kaiser Family Foundation found a majority opposes defunding ObamaCare as a way to stop implementation and several recent studies have predicted that premiums on the new exchanges will be lower than expected, or will not rise overall.
As for the lower premiums, I have already explained how that is an Obama rigged shell game for the early years of the progam that will not last
