Nationwide Town Hall Bus Tour Seeks To Defund Obamacare

August 20, 2013 Updated Aug 20, 2013 at 4:19 PM EDT

UNITED STATES (21Alive) -- A nine-city, nationwide town hall bus tour is underway to whip up support to defund Obamacare.

While supporters are trying to build momentum, a growing number of GOP lawmakers are now questioning the potential political fallout of trying to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

Senator Cruz and the Heritage Foundation are hoping to whip up enough support to gut President Obama's Affordable Care Act.

"And there is no more important piece of regulatory reform that we can do than to repeal every single word of Obamacare," Senator Cruz said.

Two progressive groups are planning counter-protests outside the town halls while other groups are spreading the word in TV ads.
