He is doing what I elected him to do. If the media and the GOP-E don't like it, they can pound sand.

Cloture on the vote this Saturday or Sunday. That’s the important vote, per Cruz.

Go Cruz.

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.

Read the encyclopedia into the record.

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.

Go, Cruz!

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.

Shoot...encyclopedia....read the entire Declaration of Independence and Constitution. And when you’re done with that, start reading the Federalist Papers.

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.

The republicans did a rolling filibuster in 1993 but the rules may have been changed since (and possibly as a result).

Thanks for this link. Ted is a true leader.

We are witnessing the start of Ted's 2016 campaign.

Ted stands on the side of Liberty. He will flush out all the evil statists in both parties.

I loathe RINOs more than I do the RATS. If the evil GOPe were honest, they would switch to the party of their true beliefs -- the RAT party.

That includes Rove, the vile POS that is as destructive as anyone on the left.

I LOVE, absolutely LOVE, hearing a representative, represent!!!!!

If this prevents the cloture vote, then this would just about be the best Christmas present I could have.

Now check this out. Drumroll please...

Mark Levin believes that the purpose of Obama's most recent speaking tour is to soften the ground for him unilaterally lifting the debt ceiling.

Treasonous? Impeachable? You betcha. But who will stop him, besides Cruz and Lee?

Just watched CNN-Obama in the break room.

The CNN newsblondes are smearing Cruz as a “political opportunist trying to make a name for himself, because nobody likes him”.

That’s almost a verbatim quote.
