Of course Corker doesn’t want to defund Obamacare, the Obama won’t invite him to anything again. Time to get rid of Corker next election time at the ballot bax.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, is no fan of President Obama’s signature health reform.
And while he has called Obamacare “a serious pig” that needs to be put on “permanent hold,” Corker does not support the latest effort by several Congressional Republicans to oppose any spending bills that include money to support the law. According to The Leaf-Chronicle, Corker called the push by Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, among others, a “silly effort.”
“I think it’s a silly effort, and what people are really saying who are behind that effort is, ‘We don’t have the courage to roll up our sleeves and deal with real deficit reduction and spending decisions. We want to take ourselves out of the debate and act like we are being principled to the American people by saying if there is one dime of funding for Obamacare we are not going to vote for the (continuing resolution),”‘ Corker said Tuesday on MSNBC.
