Cruz to Hannity, July 25: "If we can hold on to 41 Republicans in the Senate or 218 Republicans in the House, we can actually succeed in defunding Obamacare."
HANNITY: Bottom line is that you just need a majority of House Republicans, and in the Senate what do you need there?"
CRUZ: We need 41, which is enough to sustain a filibuster."
HANNITY: So in other words, there are enough Republicans to do this?"
CRUZ: We don't need a single Democratic vote to do it.
