I wonder how long Cruz would have to go without sleep before Durbin could best him in a debate. I’m guessing we aren’t even close yet.
After 20 hours speaking and without sleep or coaching, Cruz is twice the speaker that Durbin is. Durbin responds by playing the class warfare card. That’s all he’s got.
Dicky’s repeating that First Class Healthcare meme, over and over. JudysNotReal wouldn’t even get on the plane for treatment of her *diabetes* with 0Care. She’d be given a pill.
Turbin just set himself up - this oughta be good......
Thank you the updates. I’ve pretty much have been watching since 1 am today, then to work, and can’t watch here.
What is going on. Is Reid back in? When will Cruz have to stop? Is the chamber filling up?
Is Durbin still speaking?
Same old crap all libs pull: let’s wreck the entire economy and empower government to help Judy. BTW, Judy does not need Health Insurance to get health care. We were a charitable country before taxes for government mis-managed charity started stealing our money. Judy would have been cared for without needing Kaiser Durbin.
BTW to Durbin - The federal government is not your employer - we are and you like giving yourself those benefits you rattled off, don’t you?
Answer my three questions!!!
Durbin last night said that their (Senate) insurance plan is common place.
Now he says it is the best and not really common.
Lying then or now?
You haven't managed to put any pressure on DC. Cruz is crushing them and melting their phone lines.
Well shucks Little Dick Durbin did a great job last night helping Cruz by making a complete ass out of himself, so let’s hope that he does so again.
Oh zing! Cruz just knee whacked Durin with his own analogy (flying economy or coach. Also threw his hundreds of letters and millions who were losing their insurance against Judy’s story.
Now he asked Durbin if he has read Hoffa’s letter and if he believes Hoffa is telling the truth. If so do the ACA supporters have a plan to fix it?
Durbin is now flushed and shooting himself in the foot by pointing out that Congress has first class health care and accuses Cruz of wanting to keep people off the plan. He’s going to wish he didn’t challenge Cruz. Cruz is gutting him.
Durbin is NOT answering the question....
I honestly don’t know how this man gets reelected...the sanity of IL voters really is in question...as is the sanity of my fellow VA voters!
Durbins being rude trying to interrupt Cruz...didn’t work..
If I didn’t know any better, I would say that Cruz just called Durbin a liar.
Cruz looks as fresh as a daisy. It’s astonishing! Plus, he’s planning a surprise to throw the Democrats for a loop. They are very unhappy about that.
Shut up Durbin, let the MAN speak
