Earlier this week it was widely reported that House Republicans were livid with Cruz.  Now this?

Does anyone actually believe this would have occurred if not for Cruz's filibuster?   :whistle:

According to Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), who authored the letter, "until Harry Reid guarantees a 60-vote threshold on any amendment including his amendment to add back Obamacare" the Senate GOP should vote against cloture. Otherwise a simple majority of the Senate could vote to continue Obamacare funding.

Well this should be interesting...

Some of the names are congressmen Boehner "punished" for their conservative positions and removed from committees earlier this year.
