U.S. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) – one of the few true fiscally conservative members of the U.S. Congress – will pay a visit to South Carolina next month. The first-term lawmaker will headline GOP gadfly Mallory Factor’s “Charleston Meeting” on the evening of Monday September 9.
The invitation only event will be held at the Harbor Club in downtown Charleston, S.C.
Lee, 42, is the leader of the conservative effort to defund U.S. President Barack Obama’s socialized medicine law in the Senate – an effort which it’s worth noting is not supported by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.)
“I want at least two votes, a bare minimum of two votes, ” Lee has said of his proposal – which is supported by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and other fiscal conservatives. “One vote to fund everything else in government, one vote to fund Obamacare. What I’m saying is if Obamacare can’t stand and get funded on its merits, its own two legs, it doesn’t deserve to be funded.”
We eagerly await what Lee has to say about his effort … and about the refusal of Graham and other liberal “Republicans” like Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell to support it.
Obviously we’ve made it abundantly clear where we stand on the issue …
