(CNSNews.com) - "The very best argument against Obamacare is the president's conduct during the first ten days of this shutdown," Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) told the 2013 Values Voters Summit in Washington on Friday.

"I mean, look what's happened. The president is using the vast, immense power of the federal government to hurt the American people -- why? In order to win a political argument."

Lee asked, "What happens then, when we turn over some of the most private, intimate decisions in our lives -- our health care system -- to the government. When will that be used as a tool against us?

"We must stop it, we must defund it, we cannot accept it," he said.

Lee noted that he and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) have been criticized for their attempt to defund Obamacare by attaching it to a stopgap funding bill.

"We make no apologies. We stand with you, we stand with the people."
