Does this have to go through the weekend?
Somebody PLEASE tell me. I'm dying to know.
Now, let's see who shows up to help.
I’d like to send Ted’s tweets to Cornball. How do you do that? Thanks!
“We’re not willing to do it (kill 0bamaCare)” - Cruz quoting the minds of the GOPe.
Thanks for the heads up! God Bless Ted Cruz...
I LOVE, absolutely LOVE, hearing a representative, represent!!!!!
I don’t know the rules of filibuster, but Cruz started out by stating that he stands with Mike Lee. Whether that pulls Lee in as part of a tag team, I don’t know.
Law of the land they say. The Nazis had laws of the land. I have spent too much time in Germany not to understand this bull. Germans still have Nazi laws on the books, but guess what, although they are law of the land they are not funded nor followed.
This is utter bull crap fascist levers they are pulling on us.
Expect a death panel to visit you if
1. you own a gun
2. dont wear a sharia robot burka
3. are the wrong color or nationality
4. IF the IRS is checking what your prayers are
and more to come.
This Obamacare is outrageous.
If people want this kind of universal care, it is called joining the US army and enlisting without rights, period.
But the very liberals who could not stand a chance in an army setting are the first idiot flies going for this pipe dream honey pot of “if every one participates and is a communist” all will be fine and rates will go down.
Only illegals will be exempt... and guess what, I might renounce my US citizenship and secede from this abortion-homosexual genocide program by creep.
This is great.
Go Ted Go!!!
You got to love this guy!
How I wish that everyone would be hearing this - he’s giving an incredible lesson in civics.
Is he wearing pink shoes? THAT would be freaking awesome!
Shoot...encyclopedia....read the entire Declaration of Independence and Constitution. And when you’re done with that, start reading the Federalist Papers.
Go Get Them, Ted —
Doing 8 hour shifts 40 hours a week requires only 5 people (4+). 10 would make it bearable. And 20 would make it a piece of cake.
Let’s send up prayers. Just in case he has to go it alone, that the Lord grant him the endurance.
I wonder if he is reading tweets or if he can see Tweets while he is there,,I want him to know I support him,,,WE support him!
Yes, before Rand Paul’s filibuster, Senators had gotten a bit lazy about it, technically holding the floor but not doing or saying anything during the process. That’s why Rand’s was so spectacular at the time....he actually talked for 13 hours, old school style, and not just walked off without yielding the floor.
I just retweet them all with Stupidcow’s twitter address. (requires a twitter account.
