OK, ready?

Here we go:

Conservatives leading the fight to defund Obamacare in a must-pass budget bill are urging Senate Republicans to filibuster legislation that would do exactly that.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., hasn’t announced how he’ll proceed on the House-passed continuing resolution to prevent an October government shutdown and defund Obamacare. But Capitol Hill observers expect Reid to strip out the provision defunding Obamacare, a move that would leave Senate Republicans no choice but to filibuster a measure some of them have been demanding.

Even the supporters of the defunding effort are advocating that their counterparts in the Senate stall the House bill.


Just in case you thought there was any sanity or reason left in politics… no.
