It looks to me like Cruz did the right thing, or at least the closest approximation to the right thing that was realistic under current conditions.
That's good. As more and more people get forced to pay the Obamacare taxes, we may still win this thing.
Boiling frogs in pots only works if the water is heated slowly. I still think the rapid rise to a full boil which Obamacare taxes represent is likely to generate a major explosion as people realize they are being forced to pay a huge tax increase for an insurance product many don't want, and many others will find seriously problematic.

Laz, I understand your point about RightwardHo. Certainly it's true that we have lots of fake conservatives on Free Republic.
However, this data from his page should be checkable. “Retired State Prosecutor of 25 years (Fairfax County, VA). Law School, UVA. Married 46 years. Eight kids, 15 grand-kids. Born in Providence, RI. Retired to Pasadena, CA.”
Not everybody with wrong views is fake. Some are just plain wrong.
They announced every single one of these bloated tax paid government employees will be paid every penny they didn’t earn while sitting at home watching movies..
Try that in the real world
Old news. GOP house passed that bill Saturday the 5th. I ranted endlessly about it then. Not one house member voted against it.
Got lectured by a cheerleading team here that that House bill was a brilliant move to beat Obama at this.
I pointed out that it was a clear signal they (GOP) thinks they were losing. And obviously they did, but it was a bad sign at the time.
The purpose was to try to keep those Gss from all being Dem.
that was already on my posted list of the comment you replied to #1 ref #258
Hard to blame RINOs/GOPe alone for that, they all went for it.
LOL — thank you for the laugh.
You’re supposed to be little less obvious Troll.
chopperjc got the zot yesterday.
Good. One down several more to go.
Some of what you say may be true, but who do we have in the Senate who is any better? Cruz can't single-handedly defeat Obamacare or block this budget deal, so what can he do other than yap? It isn't as though he has the votes behind him to do much more than that. A fillibuster would just prolong the inevitable.
