Agree. This is their (Pubbies) PRIME TIME to lead the offensive. They have SO MANY things at their backs (Unions don't like 0Care, Docs don't like 0Care, Majority of Americans don't like 0Care), but...you watch...they'll squander this opportunity, just like they have ALL of the others.

These tired, old RINO's ALWAYS snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

My apologies for jump”n in...but, Senator Cruz is a threat just as the rest of true Americans are! The “Establishment Ruling Class” is being challenged for the first time in their lives and ours.

Despite the bullsnit hack media and the party “fluffers”, HARD CHOICES must be made. Only the serious need apply.

Nanny Pelosi Galore, McStain/McLame/McLetemin, Linda Gramnesty, Scooter Schumer, Turbin Durbin (I hate this POS for his rail against us troops), the honorable poof from Kentucky Mcsumthingorrather, and last but not least the idiot outta TN...Boot licker/bootlegger Corked! There are dozens more!

Times are a changing, slow mind ya. But, Rove and his butt sniff’n buddies head’n down the road to “yesterday”.

I’d have to say that Cruz seems to be one of the rare honest politicians that come around once in a lifetime. I like Mike Lee, as well, and Louis Gohmert, too. I bid them all godspeed and favor with the people so much so that the democrats, Obama, and the bumbling GOPe are truly afraid of them. We have got to stand behind these guys and we MUST let the other wimps know that we are outraged by their feckless behavior, their stupidity in not trusting the people, and their contriving to deceive us and let Obama have his way.

I am getting fed up with all the talking heads disparaging Sen Cruz.

I'm not. He's pissing off all the right people. I laugh every time I hear McQueeg blow up.

I love how even Reid refers to it as “Obamacare” People will spit the Kenyans name over this, just as they spit Hitlers.

He will not be able to distance himself from this fiasco. Even when the MSM starts calling it something else - it IS Obamacare and his name will be associated with it as the sheeple realize just how expensive it is and how poor the coverage is.

Ted Cruz has a strong, patriotic father, who experienced torture in Cuba b/4 finally reaching the USA. He spoke so eloquetly not too long ago on the subject. Like father, like son.

It's sad and infuriating, trubolotta, that here in Illinois we have nothing to trade for a Ted Cruz. The hard core socialist/marxist/commuist scum that represent us in Illinois totals up to nothing more than scum. At least I can say that I've seen and listened to Senator Ted Cruz,and I am proud and hopeful and willing to work my arse off for this man, in any direction he desires to go. He gives me hope...so far, so good.

Cruz is now the effective Minority Leader in the Senate, and de facto Speaker of the House. He’s filled the void in leadership that was created by the failed DC GOP ‘leadership’.

I am getting fed up with all the talking heads disparaging Sen Cruz.

Thomas Sowell, who I respect immensely, is one of his detractors. It is discouraging to see Sowell belittle this endeavor to stop CommieCare. He concedes that it needs to be done, but that it is a losing battle in the end. But he then doesn't offer any other immediate solution.

When Cruz was in high school, he and some friends formed a club. They memorized the Constitution and went around the state making speeches about the Constitution.

He is for real. That is why he is so unpopular with politicians.

Time will tell but it appears that Senator Cruz does in fact follow through on his initial intentions.

Agreed. My rule of politicians: All politicians are scoundrels until proven otherwise. Upon proof, these "unproven" must make monthly installments of proof otherwise they are re-labeled scoundrels.

I trust Cruz like I’ve never trusted any other politician in my life, INCLUDING Reagan. And he’s MY senator, thank God!

So do I. I could just hug him for being a person I did not think we would see in Washington in my lifetime.

Wish he were my senator, but I thank you for sharing. :) (Rafael of the Cross - LOL)

Been calling all of Sen Cornyn’s offices here in The Great State of Texas.

All lines, all lines in all EIGHT offices are busy. No voice-mail, can’t get through. Sent an email through his website.

One can imagine he is swamped with calls calling him out on his attack on Sen Cruz’s principled stand.

I listened to the whole speech and motion by Senator Cruz. It was very well done.

It puts the blame squarely on RINOS AND the Dems for Obama Care’s coming debacle.

Cornyn is dead meat!!! This exactly what happened to moron, Obama on the Syria bombing fiasco. The retard POTUS had no feel for what the overwhelming majority of the American people felt. Cornyn, McConnell, Pundits, the Obamabot media, etc....also have no idea how much the overwhelming majority of Americans hate Obamacare!!! Ted Cruz, etc. is doing a fantastic job laying out the real feelings of the America people on Obamacare!!! Sign the Lee/Cruz Defund Obamacare Petition right NOW!!!

If what occurred on Tuesday is any indication, Sen. Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee are two great patriots, and men I would support and follow. I’m in it for the long haul, and may God bless America, my home sweet home.
