Cruz: As is usually the case, the Senate floor is largely empty...

20,000 pages of ObamaCare regs and more and more is coming....another 3000 pages every six months.

LOL!

Cruz: “Some Senators are complaining that they’re getting too many phone calls from their constituents today.”

Yes, you are correct! I think most of them would prefer that the dems won control of both houses. They see it to be easier for them. It’s less work when you don’t have a majority to protect.

God bless Cruz. Dam the Senate GOP leadership. I hope and pray that pusillanimous old pipsqueak McConnell gets dumped this time around - with as many of his RINO buddies as possible.

“It would be cool if he told them that they can all go to hell and he’s going to Texas.”

He might. And it’s clear he has Presidential aspirations. What’s not clear is whether it’s President of the US or a Texas republic.

If the Obamacare regulations were printed on toilet paper, we could save the people of Venezuela.

If the Obamacare regulations were laid end to end, we could walk to the moon.

OH CRAP...

Cruz just committed a MAJOR NO-NO!
He dared to mention The Cocktail Party Circuit!!

The Sheeple mustn’t know how power is REALLY brokered in D.C.

It’s a good thing the Mainstream Media won’t be mentioning this, eh?

This speech, the words behind it, knowing Ted means what he is saying, and what it all represents....literally brings tears to my eyes.

THIS is what a representative looks (and sounds) like!!

No Reid, it won't be if Cruz is joined by Lee and a few others in relief.

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.

So for once, CNN is actually reading Republican talking points for a change?

Thank you Ted Cruz! You are one of only a very few, in Washington today, who give some of us hope our nation can may yet survive.

Your hard work, dedication and courage, will be remembered.

They wouldn’t know what to do on a date with a guy who has balls. Unlike Mr. Weiner, Ted doesn’t need dirty pics for us to know he’s a man.

That's great! I'm camped here and appreciate listening to Cruz and seeing quips like this. Wouldn't miss it for anything.

Looks to me that Senator Cruz is knocking it out of the park.

I am not surprised, but I am extremely disappointed that he finds himself speaking to empty chairs. The French Republicans are nowhere to be found.

John Cornyn’s Washington mailbox for comments is full, and EVERY ONE of his regional offices go to busy signal.

John, here’s a message for you: MY SENATOR is standing up for my values in the well of the Senate as we speak. Do your damn job and support him.

“Just Lee, apparently.”

Praying, then, for more...

Cruz: How dare they! ...As time goes on there is more and more [a tendency for legislators] to view constituents as an annoyance....What a broken system...

Legislators annoyed they are getting too many calls from their constituents.
