Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) and Rep. Peter King (R-NY) doubled down on their attacks on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) over the fight to defund Obamacare in the upcoming Continuing Resolution. According to a transcript CNN provided to news outlets including Breitbart News, Wolf Blitzer asked Duffy whether he thinks the Senate “which is Democratic-controlled, is -- does not stop funding ObamaCare, you will allow the government to remain in business, is that what I'm hearing?” Duffy responded by arguing that he thinks the Senate already likely has a deal in the bag. “So, Wolf, for all I know, Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell are going to sing Kumbaya together,” Duffy said. “They're going to find an agreement, as they have a filibuster over in the Senate. They might negotiate this thing out and send us the package in the House that works for us. I don't know what they're going to do. And listen, I think Peter King and I can't figure out how the Senate behaves as House members, nor can America.”
