Thank god for alternative news sources, such as RT.com...yeah, yeah, I know the Russians run it.
Guarantee you that Obozo and his family and all of Congress are still except, and any other special interest group that donated’s a few million to the Muslim-in-chief’s democrap party. CommieCare is only for those that can’t afford to buy their out of it. That the haves have special exemptions to this pile of garbage and the have-not have to participate should be grounds for impeachment. But once again, the worthless GOP cowers down like a dog in heat to this worthless POS. We live in a banana republic. Just another corrupt 2nd rate country with no laws.
The whole defund thing was stupid to begin with. Two, quite large, roadblocks stood in the way (Reid/Obama). There was no reason to think or believe that we could overcome them. None. Our best bet to repeal this monstrosity is to do it by taking the Senate and winning the WH. Will that be hard? Very. But it’s our only true shot.
You flipped 180 degrees
Now you are spouting what you called defeatism just ~ 14 hours ago.
Now its OK a few hours later.
I said exactly what would happen, you called that defeatism. Now you say its a great.
You need to become a little more astute.
We were not going to stop Obamacare with this method, not after the ENTIRE GOP establishment cabal turned on the effort.
Cruz would have simply been whistling past the graveyard with another filibuster, and would probably have ended up damaging the defund effort, since although the US would not default, we would be downgraded for all this chaos.
The results of this entire debacle were twofold.
A) Obama and his law’s favorables have tanked
B) We have the invaluable senate votes taken by Pryor, Landreaiu, Hagan and Begich to smash them with in 2014.
PRECISELY. Boehner is being allowed to skate by, when he should be DEPOSED!
Kos Kiddies are already aghast at their premiums
Hey I’m just extremely angry and feel betrayed by boner etc.
I just posted one comment.
I thought we were finally getting somewhere by shutting the gov down, the protests by the truckers, etc. and now this. just feel devastated
so it’s now on the house. on the phones as we speak. we need to extract every last bit of information on boehner’s vote.
It’s alright. We’ll have the last laugh when all is said and done.
In a funk, because two men in the Senate can’t run off a body full of socialist Republicans and Marxist Democrats from making a deal, and then single handedly herding from their senate seat a House leadership full of long time squishes?
Take you’re whine to the media tavern for your face time and camera shots. You will all fit in nicely on the victim channel pointing your powdered finger at patriots.
This is such a bad law. Ted Cruz truly fought a good fight. Healthcare and personal finances for over 300 million people is going to affected by this. Senator Cruz tried to stop it in the eleventh hour. It’s hard to pull off something big like this when you have your own party stabbing you in the back. During the next major elections, we will the advantage of saying “we told you so”. Hopefully that will enable us to get rid of the socialists once and for all.

It's not over. It's just delayed until January.

You should be much more polite than you are to others since you so regularly contradict yourself.
The income verification was already in the law so they got NOTHING.
Is it OK to blink now ???
True but if Cruz and Lee aren’t gonna block it, it looks like the chances that the House as a whole will reject this bill are getting smaller and smaller by the minute.
It is true, this means conservatives simply need to gear up for the next round and come back harder next time.
Some times you must think out side the box. Cruz could not stop this event from happening only delay it for at least a little more than a day. When Obama Care starts to change their lifestyles and effects their incomes, maybe just maybe we might see change.
And that is Pelosi’s “relaxed face.”
Nothing has actually passed and been signed, but if the deal is as said, and goes through, then it's just until January.
I'll keep fighting, and not hoping for a cave like some here on FR seem to do.
Yup. Every time I think there’s a glimmer of hope they roll over.
On a financial website I frequent they just had an article titled “Conservatives fight their modern day Alamo... And lose again!”.
Didn’t read the article but can’t say I disagree with the title.
I say that because right at this point in time, barring nothing less than a Red Sea-class miracle from the hand of Almighty God (and I doubt He will because this country has pretty much spit in His face for last 3 decades), it certainly looks like the Dark Side has won.
Oh well, at least we get to enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas...and so do the parasites (using our money to pay for their turkeys and trimmings)....
Don’t come to Canada, it’s worse. Rather than going somewhere, I think it’s
time to make a stand for freedom.
Positive Agenda = More Government Spending
More Government Spending = Deeper Hole
Why? We’re not going anywhere. We buck up our friends and we hammer domestic enemies. We sabotage communists where we find them. One battle does not make a war.
Get strong, get local.
Only if you give up. How is the senate election going in NJ today?
It would seem that there is no defense or explanation from the offending posters?
"Well .......... we're waiting!"
I'm sorry, McLame. Are you talking about the country as a whole or are you talking about your pathetic GOPe surrender monkeys?
How do you dig out of a hole when you keep digging it deeper?
God bless you and thank you so much, dearest Servant of the Cross!
Funny, nothing in this sentence says "compromise" to me. What did the Dems give up?
Let's see. In this thread alone they (especially Cruz) have been called useless, morons, paper tiger, yapper, a useless twit, not a man.
Reminds me of the definition of a RINO: Someone who disagrees with you on any single thing or does anything you disagree with regardless of how insignificant.
Under Senate rules, two Senators might not be able to stop the coup that is taking place, but they might be able to use their "face time" to point it out. Cruz has opted to give Harry Reid what he wants. If you're not disappointed by that, then I'm sure that you'll enjoy all the surrenders to come.
If that was your goal, then yeah, I guess you won. Congrats.
FULG and FUGOPe. McConnell's "best" isn't good enough. Primary his ass out.
Cruz/Lee did an outstanding job. Alone in the wilderness they held firm in what they believed in until there was no reason not to. They pulled a large portion of the nation to our side, whether anyone on here wants to see that or not. They did not bow to the media powerbrokers. They also presented themselves in an ethical and professional manner throughout the entire crisis. No other republican in the senate or single democrat can state they did the same. In fact, most of the rino senators and all the dems did exactly the opposite - blackmailed by the media, unethical behavior including gossip/lies, no regard for the desires of the citizenry, etc.
Revolutions come in various forms, as we have recently been reminded of throughout the middle east. My prayer is for a peaceful revolution and transition to a constitutional government. For too long the people of America have been controlled by a tyrannical oligarchy bordering on fascism. We have been lied to, spied on, our material wealth stolen without cause. And the freedoms granted to us by our Creator are in the process of being crushed into the ground. A peaceful revolution, one that brings us a freedom based constitutional government must be our first cause. Do not be distracted by small fires around the perimeter. Stay focused on the core issue at hand - the founding of a freedom based constitutionally sound and minimal government.
Since Jun 5, 2011
Republicans had both Houses of Congress as well as the presidency not too long ago. How did that work out?
Huh? He’s the only one leading. He’s just one man, and this was just the opening act. He’s one of the most talented lawyers in the nation, and this was his opening statement. Where do you turn now since you’ve dismissed Cruz? Who’s doing more?
I week ago I might have argued with you about that. Now I'm sure that you're right.
