That's representatives on a mission to eliminate obamacare and now Utah senator Mike Lee says he is not taking no for an answer.
-- utilize every procedural mechanism at my disposal to do it I will not vote.
For continuing resolution that contains funding for further obamacare implementation and enforcement.
-- -- So far I've got federal thirteen or fourteen senate Republicans who have joined me I expect these numbers to grow steadily.
As Americans realize that the president has said.
He's not going to implement the law as it's written if he's not going to implement the law we shouldn't be forced to fund it.
But he still trying to go ahead unless we get a press conference about it now that very same senator joins us right now he's also the other this book like John Roberts was wrong.
About health care senator what could you do to stop it now that you couldn't do six months ago that spending two years ago.
Well right now this is the last golf.
Before Obama carefully kicks in on January 1 of next year.
For -- to refuse to fund it.
Congress of course has to pass a law to continue funding government would lately we've been doing that grew up funding mechanism called a continuing resolution.
If Republicans in both houses simply refuse to vote.
For any continuing resolution that contains further funding for further enforcement of obamacare we can stop -- we can stop the individual mandate from going into effect.
Well let's look at this right now there are some popular things is you know with Obama care.
A lot of people are pleased that if your kid can't get a -- -- have a kitty -- -- to 26 he could.
Stand your plan and we don't let the preexisting conditions do you risk some backlash if -- end up just -- it.
That perhaps we could if that happened but but remember the way we've -- this is we're talking about further.
And implementation of obamacare so we're not talking about those things we're talking about those -- haven't kicked in yet we're talking about the individual mandate.
The exchanges the exchange subsidies and so -- That that's what Americans are afraid that's what's causing premiums to sky -- and that's what we've got to stop for this effort.
-- don't fund it.
Well I mean if you do you think if left alone America will really grow distasteful of Obama care.
But it gives you your belief he can't be able to be stops of the if the rate starts W the doctors start dropping out like they say they will.
Will that be enough to stop but will the implementation.
Be enough -- the turn off to save you a lot of to a lot of lot of trouble.
Well yes and if if we don't funded in these things don't kick in that's gonna prevent a lot of those bad things from happening.
The important part is that we do not allow those things to kick in because that's what's causing a lot of people to lose their health coverage.
The president promised us a few years ago the people could keep their doctors if they like their doctors that they could keep their current health plan if they liked it.
Now we're being told that may be the case but it might not.
You see we already knew that Obama here.
I was going to be unaffordable now we know that it's going to be unfair as well because the president's re writing it not just once but twice.
Quite telling us that he's not going to enforce the employer mandate.
But he's gonna leave individuals on the -- hard working Americans who can't afford lobbyists to get to him at the White House.
He's also told us that he's not going to enforce those provisions that require people to provide documentation of their income.
In order to support their claim to eligibility for subsidies on the exchanges by and you say that you've talked to Republicans in thirteen.
Thirteen or fourteen have already said I'm with you on this.
Yes and the numbers growing we expect to get more people signing on this week is a parallel effort going on in the house.
At this movement is going to continue to build because the American people understand.
The president's not following the law the American people shouldn't be required to fund.
-- senator Mike Lee thanks so much to look -- running Q all right.
