Can you translate Tom Cotton on a budget vote?

MAYBE/MAYBE NOT: Tom Cotton on Obamacare vote.
  • MAYBE/MAYBE NOT: Tom Cotton on Obamacare vote.
Straight-shooting Tom Cotton continues to play dodge ball on the question of how he'll vote on a federal budget that includes Obamacare.

Puzzle this AP report out if you can. He says:

Health care spending should be part of the debate on the budget.

But he stops short of saying he'd oppose a bill that included health care spending.

But he stops short of saying he'd NOT oppose such a bill if it didn't cut spending enough or delay Obamacare to his liking.

He DOES say it's a good opportunity to delay or defund the law. Isn't that a lot like saying it's a good opportunity to shut the government down if he doesn't get his way?

Until he flatly says otherwise — which he's adamantly refused to do — we remain down the rabbit hole with the Club for Growth's ambassador to Arkansas.
