The frustration that the United States Senate doesn't listen to the people is deafening. So, I would call on all 46 Republicans to unite, to stand together and vote against cloture on the bill on Friday or Saturday, because otherwise if we vote with the Majority leader and with the Senate Democrats, we will be voting to allow the Majority Leader to fund Obamacare on a straight party-line vote, a 51-vote partisan vote. The American people will understand that and voting to give that power to the Majority Leader, I would suggest is not consisent with I believe the heartfelt commitment of all 46 members of this conference to oppose Obamacare. The only path, if we are going to oppose Obamacare is to stand together and oppose cloture and I would ask for my friends on the Democratic aisle to listen to this ...2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen.

Cruz had virtually no chance of prevailing. The Senate debated the House bill defunding the health care law while preventing a government shutdown on Tuesday.Cruz wanted to derail it because Senate Democrats have the votes to remove the health care provision before sending the bill back to the House. Many Republicans opposed Cruz's effort, fearing their party might be blamed if the government closes.--------------------------------------------------------------------
