Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas) said today on a conference call the even if the Senate passes a continuing resolution that permits funding of Obamacare the fight to defund it is not over–because Obamacare cannot be funded unless the Republican-controlled House of Representatives agrees to do it.

“House Republicans can, and I believe should, continue to stand their ground,” said Cruz. “And, so, if the House holds firm, Harry Reid has no ability to muscle the House of Representatives—if they stand their ground.”
