Sen. Mike Lee (R.-Utah) is calling for the House Republican leadership to force a showdown with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Barack Obama when this fiscal year ends on Sept. 30 by refusing to permit funding for the implementation of Obamacare in whatever legislation—likely a continuing resolution—authorizes funding of the government after that date.
In an interview with CNSNews.com about his new e-book (Why John Roberts Was Wrong About Healthcare), Lee said Obama was violating his constitutional obligation to faithfully execute the law by suspending the statutory Dec. 31, 2013 deadline for the Obamacare mandate that requires large employers to provide health insurance for their workers. Lee noted that Obama is not similarly suspending the same Dec. 31 deadline that requires individuals to buy health insurance.
