Durbin got schooled. Must have gotten some coaching. “Go say this, Dick. Go say this.”

Dummy Durban is coming back for round two. You would think he would take his beating and go home.

Back to the fake 62 yr old motel maid Judy. Diabetes does not disqualify you for HC idiot.

LOL Cruz is reminding America about the hundreds of stories that have been told saying they are losing their health insurance (as compared to Judy). Asks Durbin - do you want THESE people to lose their health insurance?

LOLOLOL, now uses Durbin’s analogy about flying first class vs coach (Judy) and compares it to the special rules set up for Congress healthcare. Smackdown.

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.

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?

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?

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.
