(Excerpt) Read more at c-span.org ...
Wasserman-Schultz refused to acknowledge that Reid hadn't passed a budget and is not willing to pass a budget. First, she said that she was sure that Reid intended to pass a budget, and then she said that she's just a lowly Representative from South Florida and won't presume to speak for the Senate Majority Leader - completely blowing by the fact that she's the chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee.
There wasn't much more that Van Susteren could do when Wasserman-Schultz refused to admit to reality.
Reminds me of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. To paraphrase...
If there were only two good men, would you destroy the city?
“OK, then filibuster through Wednesday...”
Cruz, Lee...now Vitter said he will be joining.
Senators: Get to the Floor and put your time where your mouth is.
Its a shame the ruling class of Republicans dont attack Obama and the Democrats the way they hit Senators Cruz & Lee.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2013
Go Cruz & Lee!
Where did that come from?
That's actually important to remember...
I hope some of these timid senators will get a spine from the encouragement of others in DC, as well as from hearing how those of us who breathe the clean air away from DC support Cruz.
I know that this wont happen, but what I fantasize him reading is the 43 page affadavit that Zullos Cold Case Posse submitted to the AL supreme Court under oath concerning Obama’s identity fraud. (SIGH)
This effort is all well and good, but the whole issue will really take off when millions of Americans see their health insurance premiums skyrocket come January. The notices will be going out in the next week or so detailing the new plans and costs. The sticker shock will be immense.
I’ve already found out that my Blue Cross premium will DOUBLE under the new insurance exchange created in California. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Many millions of Americans will suddenly wake up to a financial nightmare. Then you’ll see outrage on a grand scale.
Quoting Michael Medved’s hit on Cruz shows what a putz you are. Why are you here? Looks like you’re the one looking for attention by regurgitating this tripe.
Post 188, a Fox poll on Gretawire. Go vote. Yep, it’s Fox, but that should make the RINO’s tremble: http://gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/
FYI. I just dumped TWC, I am liberated finally. Went with ATT Uverse which is amazing, my bill gas been reduced by 140.00 per month.
Have you called that SOB Cornyn?
I’ll second that. Someone with a born on date of 1998 should know better
As Michael Medved pointed out 2 weeks ago, this was all for show. Anyone who told you they could "De-Fund" ObamaCare when the GOP does not control the Senate or the White House was lying to you. Anyone who believed it got played like a fiddle.
I doubt that he has any expectations of changing votes.
I'm sure you know that votes are not "won" via convincing debate anymore. They are traded for favors and are pre-arranged long in advance, and then "debate" is staged to justify what was already decided in advance by party leaders.
Agree. Folks have already started receiving these notices...Twitchy had a great thread of pics of notices people were posting...with great comments to go with.
LOL, all I can say is Michael Medved is about as conservative as the man in the moon.
Your post fails right there.
