Highlights from Part IV of our special series The Conservative Comeback: Obliterating Obamacare.  The Senate RINOs caved on Friday, voting for cloture and funding McConnellCare.  The fight moves back to the House, where McConnellCare must be defeated.  It is up to you.  http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

On the Senate floor on Thursday afternoon, Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Bob Corker (R-TN) teamed up to falsely claim that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) have no support from others in the U.S. Senate for their strategy to defund Obamacare.

"It’s not the entire Republican side," Corker claimed. "I think most Republicans, I know all Republicans other than two, would actually like to give the House the opportunity to respond in an appropriate way.”

Despite Corker’s and the Democrats’ claims, several Republican Senators support Cruz and Lee in their efforts: Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate budget committee; Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee; and Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), once the ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, all support Lee and Cruz. Additionally,according to Senate Conservatives Fund, Sens. Richard Shelby (R-AL), Marco Rubio (R-FL), David Vitter (R-LA), Rand Paul (R-KY), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Tim Scott (R-SC) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) all support the strategy to defund Obamacare.
