The Senate rules on this can only lead to voter confusion.
It is not confusing at all to anybody paying attention. The GOP is preemptively surrendering. The Surrender Party is intent on funding kenyancare without even an engaged battle over it.
If you call GOP Senators they say:
I am voting for the House passed bill that defunds Obama-care and I will vote against any bill that has Obama-care put back into it. I stand with House conservatives on this
Surrender Party it is. Over a year ago I listened for 45 minutes as an R congresswoman tried to explain her vote to raise the debt ceiling. It came down to one thing-they were SCARED of how the media would portray them as starving the old people and not paying the military.
Same panty waist, no backbone thing going on again.
GO TED GO!

With all respect to your view, I dis-agree. Until I heard about Walgreens, Home Depot, UPS and hundreds of others dumping their employees on the exchanges, I would have agreed with your statement. But, now it is all clear to me. I “get it”. The McCains, Cornyns, McConnells and their ilk in the Senate and house have SOLD OUT to these huge corporations. The corporations are in love with Obamacare (stupidly) because, using Walgreens as an illustration, unloading 180,000 employees health insurance onto us taxpayers is a big, big boon to Walgreens bottom line. That the long term damage to their business from a shrinking economy is beyond the capability or comprehension of short term and self absorbed US executives with room temperature IQ is not surprising. US executives are good at driving big companies into oblivion after they individually get rich.
NO SIR! McConnell and McCain and Cornyn have been bought off and have sold their constituents down the river for personal monetary gain and they now WANT OBAMACARE to become the law of the land and NOT have it defunded. In my opinion, what is going on is that simple! Throughout history including during and before the Revolutionary War the US people have had to endure crooks in positions of power. John Cornyn and John McConnell are just crooks in that long line of crooks just as Ted Cruz is a patriot in that long and glorious line of patriots. That McConnell and Cornyn and McCain will now try to claim “we’re defunders” back in their home districts is what all voters need to be prepared for. In Texas, we will take care of Cornyn if he comes anywhere close to supporting Harry Reid on this defund CR.
