Posted on 09/25/2013 9:09:46 AM PDT by Biggirl
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, rose to speak on the Senate floor at 2:41 p.m. on Tuesday. He stood up in opposition to Obamacare, he said. And he said he would continue to speak until he could no longer stand. By Wednesday morning, Cruz and some of his colleagues were still standing.

Just heard Rush say that Ted Cruz will be on Rush’s show coming up at 1000hrs PDT.
May God bless this man and keep him standing for what is right!
He was cut off at noon, at the start of a new legislative day. He asked for permission to continue, but was denied by Reid. Reid also tried to interrupt Cruz in his last 20 minutes by constantly asking questions, until Cruz demanded the floor back.
Cruz made me proud!!
So why wasn’t it a true filibuster, and Cruz and company tell Harry to go pound sand?
Ditto what you said. God bless him!
I wonder.. When Harry Reid cuts himself, do wires pop out? That man is a soulless being. Evil. No conscience about trampling the Constitution. No ethical standards. No moral compass.
Sen Ted Cruz has spent 18 hrs trying to stop O’care
His DC line going straight to filled voice mail, but they are answering the phone at his office in
San Antonio Office Phone: (210) 340-2885 PLEASE CALL AND THANK HIM!
12:04 p.m.: The End
“This debates in your hands. Ultimately all 100 senators, all 46 Republicans, all 54 Democrats,
work for you. The pleas from the American people, I can tell you from Texas, are deafening.
the frustration that the U.S. Senate doesn’t listen to the people is deafening. So I would call
for all 46 Republicans to unite and stand against cloture on the bill.”
Cruz closed to scattered applause, and a request from the presiding senator, Pat Leahy, for order.
“Senators know better and the Senate will be in order,” he said.
“I don’t think we learned anything new,” Harry Reid said after. “But it has been a big waste of time.”
Well, Harry Reid is a big waste of skin and oxygen.
No truth to rumour Senator Leaky’s office called and offered Ted CRuz more Depends. :-)
We don’t have many who will speak truth to lies.
I applaud his zeal, but it was/is a total waste of time AND our money. And it will accomplish ZERO in the end. Except polarize more people against conservatives for perpetrating it.
Obamacare is law. It’s going to be law. And it will remain law until we control both House and Senate AND the Presidency and then maybe we can repeal it. Business (all my clients) are ALL moving forward with it. They know this is just more bull$hit blustering and frankly, it’s very disappointing.
Finally, Obama will veto any budget that defunds Obamacare anyway. Waste. Of. Time.
Let’s defund congressional salaries and go from there.
Sick of the game.
Government money runs out on Monday. Still no debt limit raised. Still no budget.
Clock’s ticking and they don’t have a lot of time when measured in Senate votes.
I’m proud too.....THANKYOU SENATOR TED CRUZ!
You are too new to know anything, and it shows. Don’t demand new plans. Stick with the one.
The money runs out on Monday. Every delay is good.
if time runs out, they will still cut paychecks and print money.
They will closed down some operations send people home for show only.
Welcome to FR. It takes a while, but you’ll get your shoes broken in eventually....
It’s official now: Sen. Ted Cruz - MAN OF IRON
