Cruz’s plan won’t work. Both from a practical standpoint (there’s enough GOP squishes to ensure defeat) and from an implementation standpoint. Defunding Obamacare actually does little to no good. Most importantly, it doesn’t stop the subsidies which kick in on January 1, and once those come into play, good luck ever getting them repealed.

That said, I stand with Cruz on this, and want him to push it to the limit. Not because it will work, but because it forces Democrats and squishes to “own” Obamacare.

Standing on principle is more appealing than grovelling for approval.

It’s called “representation”. It’s the basis of our form of government.

What he is doing is painting a bright line so that the voting public knows whose fault the coming debacle will be, because thereafter, there will be two proposals: freedom and total socialism. Else when the Slave Party trots out its plan for single payer, there will be no alternative in the minds of the body politic.

In the mean time, get on the phone and play the game. Those phone call numbers get whispered all through Washington, and they are feared.
