The French could take lessons on how to surrender from the GOP.
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
Would be silly.
“Kelly O’Donnell; @KellyO
McCain expects large GOP vote for Senate compromise.”
LOL! What a dunce McCain is.
maybe cruz should have read Sarah Palin’s column where she says there is no threat of default. so it was a news media manufactured crises
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.
The right people know that the two of them have done their best and anything further will just discredit the whole movement at this point. When the people speak the media will be silenced once again.
Don’t blame Cruz and Lee. They’re the only ones with any fight. Put the blame where it’s due: On the McCains and Grahams of Senate. These men are big-government Democrats, no more, no less.
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 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
No surprise here. follow and see how close I was:
Not sure they can block it.
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.
How exactly do you "dig out" from a hole? Moron.
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 Reids 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.
Rush Limbaugh is going to play that famous clip wherein Alan Dershowitz describes Ted Cruz as one of the smartest and the most principled law students to EVER have gone through Harvard.
'Tis better to have fought and spent
Your courage, missing all applause,
Than to have lived in smug content
And never ventured for a cause.
For those who try and fail may be
The founders of a better day;
Though never theirs the victory,
From them shall others learn the way. ... Edgar Guest
Viva Senator Ted Cruz!
