Lawmakers Using Budget to Fight Health Care
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic-controlled Senate plans to defeat tea party attempts to dismantle President Barack Obama's health care law.
The House has included in an emergency spending bill a provision to "defund" health care, and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is against the Senate's attempts to get rid of the health care provision in the bill.
Cruz and his allies have been speaking on the Senate floor for more than 16 hours.
