With the announcement made by the Obama Administration that the employer mandate portion of Obamacare will be delayed and income verification impossible, Senator Ted Cruz has finally thrown down the funding gauntlet.
I agree w/ Sen. Baucus, lead author of Obamacare, that it's become a "huge train wreck." Proposing bill to defund it: http://t.co/w3TfQo6GiW

From the Senator’s press release:
The Administration’s recent announcement to delay the onerous and unpopular employer mandate until after the 2014 election, coupled with its announcement to delay income and health status eligibility requirements in favor of an honor system for the most expensive entitlement for our generation, confirms what has been obvious from the start—this law is a colossal mistake.
Oh, and all TWO pages of the proposed legislation are embedded in the press release. Can a two page bill finally bring down a 904 page law? (cue David and Goliath metaphor) #popcorn
