WASHINGTON (AP) — Ted Cruz and Mike Lee stand as the Senate's dynamic duo for conservatives, crusading against President Barack Obama's health care law.
But at the same time they've infuriated many congressional Republicans with a tactic they consider futile, self-serving and detrimental to the party's political hopes in 2014.
Cruz, who's from Texas, and Lee, who represents Utah, spent months this summer pressuring Republicans to link any short-term spending bill to keep the government running with permanently defunding President Barack Obama's health overhaul.
The two former Supreme Court clerks are determined to reverse Obama's signature law — which the conservative court of Chief Justice John Roberts upheld in 2012.
