GOP Divided Over Obamacare

Congress is at war again, but this time the fighting isn't exactly between Republicans and Democrats. With just a few days to go until August recess, the GOP is deeply divided over whether to threaten to shut down the government unless the Affordable Care Act is repealed.

Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saying he would not vote for a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare, and 11 others have signed on to that letter.

Now they say they'll bring yet another vote to the floor for repeal, making it the 40th such vote on the measure.

Obamacare will be a disaster. Liberals want the government involved in every aspect of thiers lives. Get a job and get your own insurance. I have never been uninsured and have been working since Im 18. Why is this so difficult for the left wing?

I dont want to pay one more cent for the lazy and illegal, while they are home drunk and im working 11 hours a day.
