With less than a month to go before millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare, the petition to defund the program has hit a landmark 1 million signatures – on schedule, by Labor Day.
In what’s being called the last chance to stop Obamacare, U.S. Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, are going full-bore to get other senators to sign on.
The petition at DontFundIt.com hit its target Monday morning, according to the website, which features a countdown to the anticipated funding vote, and lists which senators – and candidates who hope to replace them – have pledged not to fund Obamacare in 2014.
With 54 Democrats in the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid needs everyone in his party, and six Republicans, to reach the 60 votes needed to fund the unpopular program. Lee and Cruz say if Republicans hold strong, they can stop it.
Last week, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin signed the petition supporting the effort.
“The time for rhetoric and ceremonial votes in Congress is over,” Palin said in a statement released at the time. “The time to take serious action to stop Obamacare is now.”
DontFundIt.com is affiliated with the Senate Conservatives Fund, whose website describes the group as a “grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate.”
