WASHINGTON (AP) — Emboldened conservatives who forced House Republican leaders to push for a stopgap spending bill that would unravel President Barack Obama's health care law are digging in for a long fight, determined to stop the program before the first individual signs up in less than two weeks.
Conservative North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows says, "Our resolve on this is unrelenting."
Meadows helped spur his colleagues to pressure the GOP leadership on the tea party's signature issue, writing a letter in July to House Speaker John Boehner that called for stopping the Obama plan.
Lobbied hard by outside conservative groups such as Club for Growth, Republicans turned the letter into legislation. More than 140 Republicans signed on to the bill to keep the government running and delay the health care law.
