Friday, House conservatives stood united in support of a bill that fully funds the government and defunds the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Now, it’s up to conservatives in the Senate to stand strong and continue this fight. On Friday morning, Congressman Culberson spoke in support of the Continuing Resolution, or CR. His floor speech on the importance of funding the government and defunding Obamacare was cited by PBS, Fox News, the New York Times, and the Boston Globe.
