Well, somebody has to do something about the train wreck
RIGHT DURING PRIMARY SEASON!
How about you find a new topic to raise heck about? I’m series.
Healthcare isn’t the only thing in the budget.
What a patriot! Ted Cruz will go down in history as one of only 3 patriots that gave their all to save our country.
All of the rest of those on “the hill” are cowards, cheats, and downright enemies of our country.
Except that now they won’t have any problems at all finding at least 6 or 7 Republican senators to vote to end his filibuster. So he might shut it down for 30 hours but that’s about it.
After Jan 1 everyone should have a pretty good idea of how much Obamacare is going to really cost them.
The tea party should be making demands NOW for a 20% reduction in the budget. I know they should be demanding a balanced budget but 20% is all they can hope for at this time. And I picked 20 because that is the amount used for the sequestration.
Maybe they should completely drop the Bongocare meme too. It’s a marxist ideal but it may fail on its own. Anyways, it’s is distracting from the bigger isssue of run away spending.
Why make demands when they will be ignored?
There has not been a single piece of legislation over the past 20 - 30 years that has anywhere near the potential to destroy our country as Obamacare. Period. Obviously, you don’t understand that.
shut it down
all the way down
except for the military
the rest is a runaway train
In your dreams. The statists will simply "fix" it again, because no matter how badly it hurts you and I they LOVE it.
And it will be with us for ever and ever amen.
It needs to be eradicated and their are precious few in a position to do so willing to try.
Whoever does ANYTHING should have our undying appreciation.
you, whoever you are, don’t get it do you
this is a communist takeover
wise up, genius
It will rip the fabric of America when it is fully complimented, so it is damned important.
Section 1002 of the bill provides for McConnells infamous resolution of disapproval. Basically, within three weeks of the Presidents official request for a debt limit increase (until Feb 7, 2014 in this case), Congress can force a vote to disapprove of the request. Theres one problem, though. That resolution must pass with 2/3ds majorities in both houses.
“conservatives don’t care”
Fully funded and implemented obamacare will destroy whats left of the county.
$35,000,000,000 a year is big spending
The cost will only go up, obamacare is not sustainable
Cruz can try again, the Dems will set up the same PR ambush and chew up more precious time as Obamacare failure will be replaced with gov shutdown news. Wall Street will join the MSM to punish GOP because they do not like anyone screwing with their profits. If Cruz is going to lead the GOP he needs to incorporate wisdom in his keen intellect. The clean ticket to victory in 2014 is Obamacare. Gain the Senate and keep the House in 2014 and take the WH in 2016. The smartest thing the Dems will do before 2014 is delay the ACA so the ill effects can be hidden before the 2014 elections.
