Senator Jeff Sessions, appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, yesterday with Steve Bannon, explained why he was supporting freshman upstarts Cruz, Lee, and Paul in their Defund ObamaCare effort.
“Well, there’s division sometimes just over tactics like the healthcare bill and how is the best way to get rid of it,” Sessions responded. “We’ve got a new group of very dynamic, determined new Senators that just got elected and they’re not interested in business as usual. They’re pushing an agenda they believe reflected the promises they made to their constituents when they got elected, things that they believe in.”

I agree with them a lot of times on tactics and procedures, sometimes I may not, but all in all, one of the things that has occurred has been that they have been a positive force in slowing down the immigration bill.”

And in fact this bill is clearly, indisputably savaging job creation and economic growth…
[President Obama’s position is,] ‘No change–not one jot, not one tittle, of my health care [law] will be changed.’ What is he saying there? ‘I’ll shut down the government before I’ll allow a change in my perfect health care bill.’ So I want to raise the question, who is causing the problem in this country? … It’s the President of the United States, and the majority in the Senate.”
