'The deal reached by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would fund the government through Jan. 15 and raise the debt-ceiling until February. It would require income verification for subsidies under ObamaCare, but otherwise leave the helathcare law untouched.'

the media won.

Even cruz believes the media when the media say there is a crisis. the media lies there is no global catastrophe looming, there isn't even a crisis as there was never a threat of default

The USA is a news media dictatorship, .the media are socialist monsters and they rule with an iron fist

none of these morons see that growing government is ruining the economy(economy is just running on massive growing debt any idiot knows THIS is what will cause collapse. this is the apposite of the media lies who say we must raise the debt ceiling

none of these morons see that growing government is also taking away our freedoms. the democrats and other idiots are happy to be slaves of the government . they trust and love government and don't see it's just running on debt

we are done.i'm looking for another country to move to, maybe Australia, canada

Well I suspected it by the way he has handled it but I am going to say it.

Ted ruz is useless. He is a paper tiger and not a very good one at that. his non-filibuster was just show to get him nominated in 2016. Wanna prove you are a leader? Filibuster. He backs down. he skulks around. He is in this for one man ... Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz can take a hike. I started out leaning his way but have done a 180.

What a useless twit. Boy am I angry. Like in football ... next man up because Cruz is not a man.

Go away Teddy. You are not wanted

House should fight for mid-December instead of Jan. That way Obamacare delay could still be on table.

If there’s one lesson I hope won’t come from all this it’s that conservatives shouldn’t try because we can’t win. Keep fighting, lots of fights have been won by the underdog.

It's not over. It's just delayed until January. We wouldn't be having this conversation if not for Cruz.

And the most Cruz could have done with this is delay it 30 hours, according to the rules.

PFFFFFT! So wait... they're going to add an additional step into the already broken process to get on to the Obamacare rolls?

Are these Representatives complete and total MORONS?! This is a non-starter. Obama's already made executive decisions to not enforce some rules while enforcing or enhancing others not initially agreed to. What the HELL makes ANY of them think that he won't ignore this rule as well?

Obama has to be laughing his head off at this! It's a ruse! The entire country is being snookered by the government.

IMO, this puts the spotlight glaringly on healthcare.gov and Obamacare in general. Come January, if people still cannot register for Obamacare reliably and more information about rate hikes, healthcare workers being fired, the insurance exchange death spiral has begun, etc, we may actually have more leverage to flush this turd.

We will be in mid-term election year, Obama is still a lame duck. Dems will have to decide whether to ride it out or pull the chain.

I suppose kicking the Obamacare defund discussion down the road closer to Democrat Re-Election Day does make some political sense. Though we’ll be about a trillion deeper in the hole.

I think this is disinformation. A lot of inaccurate reports (translation: lies) are coming out of the Beltway parasites and the NY liberal media.

Politico, The Hill and all the others are working overtime to ‘shape’ our views and opinions.

I blame myself

I should have written an email to each one of these congressmen and to Cruz explaining to them how the media is lying as there never was a threat to default. not raising the debt limit is actually a good thing but the media lied and says the USA will default if the debt ceiling is not raised. manufactured fake crisis by the media

'IMO, this puts the spotlight glaringly on healthcare.gov and Obamacare in general.'

Sure, but that would have already been the headline 3 weeks now if others things weren't in the news.

So now all the stories will be about getting back to work, fixing the backlog, mowing yards in parks, cleanup, etc.

If your gonna bring up the treat and shutdown .gov, you do it. You don't fold. These guys have done that, and now the White House is bringing up Amnesty again. Joy.

Republicans dependable as a clock on two things.

1 To cave to the dems everytime.

2. To throw there own overboard at the first sign of trouble.

To all of you blaming Ted Cruz, he has done is best. It will be WE who save it. He cannot save it by himself or should he. McConnell and the gop is to blame for caving. Not Cruz.

From a thread I posted...

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3079701/posts

Aside for Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, nobody else paid more than lip service to fighting Obamacare. Worse, the overwhelming majority of Republicans in the Senate sabotaged the effort. One after another, they would go on TV and trash House Republicans and echo Harry Reid’s talking points. Reid and Obama just sat back and let Senate Republicans blow up their colleagues. Then in the eleventh hour, instead of at least demanding delay of the individual mandate (which McConnell touted months ago as the alternative to defund), McConnell gave Harry Reid everything he wanted.

I almost expected you to say something like this, like a good little Concern Troll.

Cruz has been a good man, but there is a time to pick your fights. He filibustered, he did all that he could reasonably do.
