    GOP Rep Grilled By Tea Party At Town Hall Over Obamacare Funding (VIDEO)


    Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC) received an earful Monday at a town hall after he said that he will not be backing efforts to defund Obamacare and risk a government shutdown

    The exchange was captured and posted by the tea party website ConstitutionalWar.org. A man off camera can be heard asking Pittenger about the defunding effort spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT).

    "Do you want the thoughtful answer?" Pittenger asked.

    "I want yes or no," the man said.

    Pittenger then said "no," a clip that the tea party website re-played in slow-motion.

    There is no Tea Party plan to shut the government.

    Defunding Obamacare and funding everything else isn't shutting down the government.

    The people talking about shutting down the government are Democrats if Obamacare isn't funded.

    Are you really willing to shut down the government to make our health care system worse?

    Yes, let the health care system rot. Defund it. It was designed to fail and enslave us anyway.

    Democrats have a choice. Defund obamacare or shut down government. If government gets shut down, it's because democrats care more about obama than they do about funding the government.
