Texas Sen. Ted Cruz may not have much support from the likes of Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn or John McCain these days, but it seems that the Republican National Committee is standing behind him as he wages his one-man speech-a-thon on the Senate floor today. According to Townhall's Guy Benson, party chairman Reince Priebus has launched an online petition in support of Cruz's efforts against Obamacare:
SUBJECT: I stand with Ted
In a fight between Harry Reid and Ted Cruz, I will stand with Ted Cruz any day.
Today, Senator Cruz has taken the fight to defund ObamaCare to the Senate floor. I hope you will join me in standing with him in solidarity.
As Republicans, we must remain true to our principles and fight to protect the American people from this reckless law.
55% of Americans disapprove of the manner in which ObamaCare is being implemented, yet Harry Reid and Senate Democrats continue to defend it, even at the expense of keeping the government running.
Harry Reid may think ObamaCare “has been wonderful for America.” But the facts are on our side – ObamaCare is costing Americans higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less access to care.
Join me and stand with Ted today. Sign our pledge and tell Harry Reid to defund ObamaCare immediately!
