Defund Obamacare Talking Points-From Tea Party Patriots

 The Senate Cloture Vote is our next hurdle

 Senate Republicans must insist Harry Reid pass the House bill as is, and demand a 60-vote threshold for any effort that would add Obamacare funding back into the House bill.

Senate Republicans must keep debate open in the Senate until they are given binding assurances that there will be a clean vote on the House CR which funds the entire government except for Obamacare. This means that Republican Senators must vote NO on cloture to end debate until such binding assurances are given.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is hoping to fund Obamacare on a partisan vote with 51 votes.

In order to vote to fund Obamacare, there must first be a cloture vote (a vote to end discussion and proceed with the actual vote).  The threshold for the cloture vote is 60 votes.  In other words, without Republican support, the motion to proceed and close debate will not pass.

We want to ensure that there will be a clean vote on the exact Continuing Resolution that passed the House, which funds the entire government and does not fund Obamacare.

If Republicans hold firm, we will win this fight and Obamacare will not be funded.
