Today, I proudly voted to Defund Obamacare, and I am proud that every Senate Republican has united in support of the House-passed Defund Obamacare provision.
I only wish that more Senate Democrats, many of whom were responsible for Obamacares passage into law, would have voted with us. (NOTE: The amendment to remove the Defund Obamacare provision, which passed the House, was defeated by the Democrat-controlled Senate by a straight party-line vote of 44-54.)
With Democrats in control of the Senate, we needed Democrats to join with the American people who want Obamacare stopped in its tracks. Based upon the Democrats unanimous votes in support of funding Obamacare, they must not have gotten the message.
I fought and voted against Obamacare in 2010. Since then, I have tried to stop the law's implementation any way I can:
* Supported ending the special exemption for Congress from Obamacare; * Supported ending the special exemption for President Obama from Obamacare; * Authored legislation to allow states to opt-out of Obamacare; * Cosponsored legislation to repeal Obamacare; * Cosponsored legislation to prohibit the funding of Obamacare; * Cosponsored legislation which defunds the IRS' implementation of Obamacare; * Cosponsored a bill to repeal the individual mandate in Obamacare; * Sent a letter with my Republican colleagues requesting the Obama Administration grant relief to all Americans by delaying implementation of Obamacare so Congress can adopt common-sense reforms; and * Offered an amendment to defund implementation of the individual and employer mandates required under Obamacare.
Obamacare is, has been, and will remain a financial disaster for our nation.
I can’t hear him, he will need to get his head out of McCain’s backside first.
He LIES! !!!!
And none of us are fooled.
Was he one of the 19?
He voted for cloture.
No. He’s lying.
Damn he’s running scare.
Shove it up your smelly Obamahole, Obama worshipping scum.
We know what you are really up to.
And after CW-II, you’ll have to pay for it.
Thought so... The 19 brave deserve recognition:Vitter, Paul, Lee, Cruz, Crapo, Enzi, Fischer, Roberts, Scott, Heller, Grassley, Toomey, Moran, Rubio, Shelby, Risch, Inhofe, Portman, Sessions
I can’t wait to see a statement from Graham’s primary opponent exposing the lie that this limp-wristed siamese twin of McQueeg really is ...
He’s a lying son of a b*tch.
The Liar Weasel.
His message makes no sense, he voted to fund obamacare
He is NOT lying. He voted for cloture which made it posdible today to vote on the House Bill. 41 GOP votes were needed to avoid cloture.
Therefore Graham’s vote today is essentially meaningless.

fixed the typo
It was perfectly safe for him to do so.
He knew he wasn’t going to change anything.
The “leadership” allowed Linda to vote against cloture, because they knew he was vulnerable and they wanted him to throw a few crumbs to his base as damage control.
We will now do our due diligence with respect to you.
Have a nice day.
That’s the only upside.
Graham, McConnell, Cornyn and I forget who else are up for re-election in ‘14 and this wound will be fresh.
We may not win them all but hopefully we can continue to thin the RINO herd.
