Skip to comments.Bob Corker slams Ted Cruz on Obamacare

Its not just House members who are taking shots at Ted Cruz on Twitter: One of his Senate colleagues is turning on him as well.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on Thursday took a whack at Cruz over social media for leading the charge to push Republicans to back only spending bills that defund Obamacare, which many in his own party have predicted will result in a government shutdown blamed on Republicans.
I didnt go to Harvard or Princeton, but I can count the defunding box canyon is a tactic that will fail and weaken our position, Corker said, a clear reference to the Harvard- and Princeton-educated Cruz.
A Cruz spokeswoman defended the tactic as the way to do it later Thursday.
Sen. Cruz was elected by Texans to represent their interests. They want Obamacare defunded and this is the way to do it before it is implemented, she said.
On Wednesday evening, several House Republicans also dinged Cruz, who admitted on Wednesday that being in the minority likely Senate Republicans cant do anything to stop Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) from moving his own spending bill that funds Obamacare. He said in that event, House Republicans must stand firm.

Put a Corker in it Bob.
Did Corker graduate from Highschool?
The sooner the GOP elite accept the fact that Ted Cruz is much smarter than they are, the better off they and the country will be.
If you listen carefully, you can hear the knees knocking of corker and other GOP-e.....
Too bad Tennessee doesn’t have “voter recall elections”.
Corker needs to get schooling from Cruz.
Hmmmm. Who will up for reelection next year Alexander side with?? Corker or Cruz? Tough choice for Lamar!
I thought the strategy is to defund Obamacare without causing a govt shut down.
this idiot needs to listen to Mark Levin’s monologue.
I get teed off over all these limp wristed RINO’s.
Cruz is correct. He is a statesman.
You do the right thing because it is the right thing to do even if it bothers your rat boyfriends.
It’s time to blame the rats if guv is shut down. My God, when the majority in the country is opposed to Obamacare, how hard is it to do the right thing?
corker is just al gore in a better suit.
I hate to point out to the Corkers of the world but the Senators are supposed to vote on behalf of their country, what is best for it. Senators are also the representatives of the states in the congress. I would bet if corker took a poll in his state legislature, he would find out he is in the minority position. So, he votes against his state and the public good by not wishing to defund this monstracity.
didn’t Corker already come out crying about not sending enough help to the jihadists?
I’m from TN and just called Corker’s office and gave them and earful! He’s a disgrace!
We need to call Bob Corker’s office
“being in the minority likely Senate Republicans cant do anything to stop Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) from moving his own spending bill that funds Obamacare.”
Especially with team members like Corker. I’m wondering which team Corker is on.
Yes he did.
