Who does Durbin think pays that 72%? His employer is us!
Last night dicky bragged about having numerous markets to choose from in IL. He can’t keep his story straight.
He is an insult to anyone with an ounce of intelligence.
Shut your pie hole dummy durbin, you are know as the dumbest of the dumb.
Yup, he sure did.
Cruz needs to shut Durban up...... that traitor and his games make me sick.
It’s good to see, everyone agrees on that.
Will Cruz keep the talking going when Reid calls the vote? Or will he stop?
Cruz refuses to be bullyied by Little Dick Durbin! Ted fired right back. Love this guy!
Makes me wonder how poor old Judy ever made it to 62 what with her diabetes and all.
Just tweeted Turbin asking if the letters STFU mean anything to him
Yep. Now Durbin asks Cruz if he wants 50 million voters to not be able to get healthcare.
Now Durbin says it’s the Republicans fault that they can’t fix things in this current law. WOWSA....it’s the Republicans’ fault.
Durbin is also bragging how he has a first class plan that someone else pays 72% of, and he is not willing to give it up. But he’s going to help all the little people by signing them up for Medicaid.
Trust me, Durbin is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. The only reason he keeps getting reelected is because this is the People’s Marxist Republic of Illinois
“Rubio now up (hopes to avoid the hanging part...lol)”
I couldn’t get through to Rubio’s DC office so called his Tampa office - spoke with a nice young man. Told him I appreciated Sen Rubio’s support of Senators Cruz & Lee and standing up against this healthcare fiasco, especially since I was in WA State and didn’t feel I had any representation. And, while I want to thank Sen Rubio for his support today, I’m not at all happy with his support with the Gang of 8 for Amnesty, but that’s another issue for another day.
He thanked me for calling and said he’d pass it along.
That's right! We're paying for YOUR insurance, Turbin...and we DON'T want to pay for JudysNotReal's insurance, too.
Most of the 50M *uninsured* don't want to work at a REAL JOB to get insurance, or don't really need insurance due to their age.
Cruz has two young kids. He is used to going without sleep. Durbin looks likes his kids, kids now have kids.
Answer the question Durban, why do you get to fly first class and nobody else does. Did you read and believe Hoffa?
I wonder how Hoffa likes being poster boy?
Your post left me with a feeling to act! LOL!! Had no idea who I was calling but she answered Peter King’s office. I was very polite, gave my name, said basically, “He probably won’t but I would ask that Congressman King support Ted Cruz.”
Durbin just wet himself.
Durbin is doing the ole shuck and jive. He is trying to reframe questions as responses without actually answering questions.
It is like comparing apples and oranges and claiming the opposition hates fruit.
Durbin’s hypothetical has awakened Cruz. LOL
Get off of the plane, Dicky. And, take JudysNotReal with you!
Bwahahahahaha!!!!! Cruz doesn’t have the Congress insurance!!!!!! Take that Dickie Durbin! OMG! Durbin didn’t even do the homework before he came to try to challenge Cruz!
dick got slapped down
Good for you. Rubio et al who have participated in this filibuster need to be thanked by us.
Cruz - Judy’s not in first class...I think she’s in baggage claim. lol
I just heard the BEST adjective for Durbin,,read it on Twitter
“DOUCHETASTIC”!!! as in Douchetastic Durbin!
Pass it around,,,PLEASE!
Go Ted Cruz ! Keep fighting for freedom!
how many hours has Cruz been talking 21 hours? amazing I can’t talk for 5 minutes then i’d give up
I smile every time he says Hoffa.
My wife has diabetes, and she qualified for insurance years ago. But after the ACA kicks in, my premium may rise to a point where I won’t be able to afford anything but the tax/penalty/whatever and end up with no insurance at all. I am, most unfortunately, a constituent of Durbin’s. I think I might drop him a few choice words about “Judy” versus my wife.
BTW, he’s well isolated from us ordinary Illinoisans. I had some Constitution Party friends who wanted to deliver a petition to him in person, and they were chased off the state capital grounds by officers with dogs, they were told it was federal property, couldn’t be approached by any impromptu visitors, even if they are legit constituents.
Durbin is a dumb-ass. Any good lawyer knows not to ask a question they already know the answer to. What a complete FOOL! Cruz just PWNED the hell out of him.
OMG, Cruz just absolutely destroyed Durbin. Battle of wits with an unarmed man. “For the record, I am eligible for the insurance but I do not participate in the plan.” “Judy isn’t in coach - she is in baggage.”
What just happened to Cruz’s mike?
Why is Cruz asking for unanimous consent to proceed without the cloture vote today?
Reid on the floor!
Judy went 62 years without health care. It is probably how she lived to 62. One of my grandmothers went 90 years without ever going to a hospital. She finally had to check into a hospital for the first time around 90 years old. She was dead within a year.
Durbin got owned. By a guy who has been up for how many hours?
Cruz is amazing. What a gifted mind.
A total smackdown. TKO!
I guess this is the part where no one told Durbin that Cruz was a master champion debater.
I thought the same thing! Hoffa is most likely spitting nails that he has been held up as an example of this ‘nightmare’ we are forced to live through! Love it
Wow, so sorry to hear about your predicament. I would also drop an email to Cruz, Sessions, or Rand Paul. They might be interested to hear how one of Durbin’s constituents is being affected vs. Judy.
stayed awake with Ted and Mike Lee til 3:30 a.m.
And woke up and they’re still going strong!
Dirk Durban is gonna make me break my TV though
Cruz-—You notice I have mot yieldd the floor.
Ge s how many hours i n and is wiping the floor with durtbin.
Heh...Reid wants to push him off now for his little vote in 30 minutes.
Cruz: 35 minutes and I have to stop....I want to o longer...asking permission to complete remarks...if Reid says no, I will have to stop at noon....
KEEP going, Ted!!!
I had overlooked that thread. I’m surprised the FR software has not regurgitated anything that size.
