Wind out of sails - not really - those who make that argument have not listened to the entire argument presented by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Cruz has authored a bill to attach to the CR that does, in fact, defund the entire Act. Anyone who thinks that Ted Cruz does not understand all the legal implications does not appreciate the legal intelligence of Senator Cruz — he is a brilliant lawyer and Constitutional scholar. Things will go badly if the GOP must rely on rudderless nitwits such as Boehner, Cantor, Rove, McCain, and Graham to do the explaining. But the GOP does not have to rely on them. Cruz, Rubio, Lee, and Paul are compelling speakers.
Does he have 60 votes in Senate? Will Obama sign it?
The above article is talking about how a government shutdown would defund all kinds of stuff that voters like, but still leave Obama-care funding in place.
That would make it even more easy for Obama to attach blame to GOP, then the GOP caves anyway left hated by everyone.
Or do you believe the MSM will all line up and blame Obama so he caves and signs a bill defunding his legacy item?
Thank you for this post. Message management means everything and Ted Cruz is nobody’s fool.
