While U.S. Sen. Bob Corker is no fan of President Obama’s health care reform, he does not support the latest effort by several Congressional Republicans including Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz to oppose any spending bills that include money to support the law. "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.

The Memphis Business Journal has the story.
