Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is calling on his House GOP colleagues to stand with him and fight against Obamacare, and abandon continued and frequent establishment GOP "surrender" efforts.
"Unless you are out of the country on a CODEL or pulled a Jeff Flake (i.e., your idea of a vacation is marooning yourself on a deserted island in the Pacific), you know that none of us can watch the television news, listen to talk radio, or check the email inbox these days without witnessing the internecine battle Michael Barone calls 'the clash of the surrender caucus versus the suicide caucus,'" Stockman wrote in a memo he plans to send to all House GOP members. "Less than two weeks into our five week recess, it seems I can't go anywhere without being asked whether I support leveraging the CR to defund ObamaCare. If your constituents are anything like mine, you too are besieged by folks demanding to know where you stand. At least three Conference Members who oppose the strategy were already confronted at town hall meetings and can now watch clips of themselves on YouTube. "
