The group praised Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) for working to tie any reopening of the government to the end of the Affordable Care Act. 

“Now is not the time to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and sign some ‘grand bargain’ to allow the White House to escape the wrath of Americans, who deplore Obamacare so much that they have driven the President’s approval rating to a near-Bush low of 37 percent,” Tea Party Patriots head Jenny Beth Martin said. 

“Clearly, Paul Ryan is losing his focus on the #1 issue in the country – Obamacare – and the desire of the American people to rid themselves of its costs and consequences,” she said.
