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.
Ted Cruz gets it.
Here we go....
OMG - he just shut down Harry Reid
The made up judy, according to durbin was never offered employer paid health insurancw. She could have purchased coverage but refused to.
Yep. Now Cruz is schooling the madame president.......she says the senator is correct. Wow after this long is still this sharp.
Has he out maneuvered Harry ?
I love how Cruz just called Reid out for speaking out of turn...he has not yielded the floor and no one else had the right to speak.
Cruz has no qualms about taking it to those a-holes and holding his ground. I love him.
I called both my TN senators..Corker and Alexander to tell their staff that I was disappointed that I never saw them last night..
I asked where was Corker to be told somethig about he was busy working on senate doings..
to that I informed the girl that that would be right on the Senate floor where was he and why wasnt he there..I expected him to be there..
I said I wanted Corker to vote NO on closture to be told he was going to vote against funding ObamaCare
Knowing the deceit that is planned I said but first comes the closture vote ...
the girl said she didnt know anything about that..and parroted the talking points that he was going to vote against funding..
and HERRRRES HARRY !!!
and Sen Cruz has said he has not yeilded..
the pres agreed..
