According to sources on the Hill, there is growing support among Senate Republicans to support Sens. Cruz and Lee's efforts to scuttle Sen. Harry Reid's attempt to reinstate ObamaCare funding in the House Continuing Resolution...
According to Hill sources, over 20 GOP Senators are set to buck Leadership on Friday and reject this procedural game, by voting against cloture. By some accounts, up to 30 Senators could vote against GOP Leadership, which would represent an existential crisis within the caucus. McConnell and Cornyn have publicly put their reputations on the line. If more than half the caucus votes against them, the center of power within the Senate Republicans will have shifted. ...........

This is awesome news. The conservatives outnumber the cowards at this point!
11 more votes against cloture and that’s game.
We need to keep calling the senators office. Dems to.
Keep calling/faxing/Tweeting/FaceBooking and emailing!!
The heat IS on!!
I heard Sen Scott on Fox this evening and and he’s a no vote on cloture.
20 is an improvement over what was expected just a few days ago....30 would be even better.
We need to keep the pressure on....more phone calls!
Dems, too is right. Like Landrieu and Pryor...both are up for re-election in conservative states (LA and AR).
Keep melting the phones.
Pray America is Waking Up
MAKE DC LISTEN: TELL YOUR SENATORS TO OPPOSE CLOTURE ON H.J. RES 59
We must oppose cloture on H. J. Res. 59, so that Harry Reid and Senate Democrats cannot sneak in funding for Obamacare. We need you to call your Senators right now: tell them to oppose cloture on H.J. Res 59 and remind them that a vote for cloture IS a for funding Obamacare.

Now that we have your attention, you sorry US Senators, keep in mind that we will replace you with those who will gladly correct your errors - - - .
So, scrub and clean by 2014 !
Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick

Rand Paul had been on this list, but it looks like he has backed off. CALL HIS OFFICE!
I’m assuming this latest list is accurate, which shows what position the Senators are leaning.
Be weary of those Senators that try to vote against Cloture not because they stand with Cruz, but to save their hide if it becomes apparent that their vote isn’t needed to give Harry Reid what he wants, allowing them political cover.(i.e. Jeff Flake, if this information is correct)
That has a nice ring to it!:)
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
From Flynn’s lips to God’s ear, I pray.
Burn the lines down longer, louder and, please, call more reps.
List up. We need 41.
> This is awesome news. The conservatives outnumber the cowards at this point!
11 more votes against cloture and thats game.
I’m for a Miracle on 34th Street type moment for Cruz’s efforts. Keep up the efforts. We need to get as many people in as many states as we can to keep contacting Senators. I’m pretty sure I’m near the 80+ mark. I even sent Barbara Boxer and Diane Frankenstein one. I know they’re going straight to the Trash bin because the don’t care what real Americans think; only their liberal gay and Muzzie friends but at least I did my part.
Could you please add this to breaking or front page news please.
Thank you for continuing to post that list on all of the Obamacare related threads.
It’s a real public service.
Politicians with their noses up, sniffing at which way the wind is blowing.
Several bikers visited Mc Connel’s office this weekend. There is a three day trucker rally scheduled for DC in October.
Link to their Facebook page above
Is not the West Virginia Senator (Democrat) Joe Manchin going to vote with the Conservatives too; think that has been in the news.
I’m sure the story has been posted.
this is what I think this is about. Notice the author says this will most likely fail.
I think after this bout of bad government gone wild I think we need to make some amendments for senators and all other congressman that they cannot pass legislation that they are exempt from, that they must live homeless for a period of 3 months and do 3 months of community service so they can develop compassion for their fellow man before they can even be considered for public office, and new provisions for term limits based upon performance. Time to put the evil ones on the streets. No more of this nonsense. We’ve been way too tolerant and this is where its gotten us.
We probably won’t get 41 if McConnell and Cornyn don’t weasal out, because all they need is McCain, Graham, Collins, Corker, and Alexander, and probably also have Murkowski. Hatch just got back so he has nothing to worry about, but everyone else might be released to vote against cloture for political cover (i.e. Coburn, Chambliss, Ikkason, etc).
The good news, however, is if this gets to 30+ Senators, that should be enough to put pressure on the House Leadership and strengthen the Tea Party conservatives there from backing down when they get the crap bill back from Reid. That’s info for Gohmert to use.
It’s hard for a lot of us to know the intricacies involved here, sounds like the House can still act on this. Good.
Thanks! Happy to do so!
May I use you to defend my repeated posting should I get crosswise AGAIN with the Admin. Mod.?
Be leery of The One’s trickery and deception though. He could easily put up false websites to spin the numbers to make it look like there are more Senators on board than there really are to ive a sense of false security o that prople lessen their efforts. I put nothing past the AntiChrist in office. The man is aware that everyone refers to him as the AC and revels in it.
If enough dems vote this way expect the hold out Rs to delay their votes till the very last. Chicken Senate style!
My hope is that all of the Traitors and at least 5 Democrats do what our Nation needs: A rebellion against the tyranny of Obama and his henchmen and women.
I love that!
Second it. Keep posting. It’s not only convenient but a good reminder
There will be just enough RINO votes (by the RINOs who need to be voted back into office sooner) to say “see we tried to stop OCare” but not quite enough to actually stop it. They’re playing games with us.
Lee said 15 maybe up to 20. Originally it was 13 signed the pledge.
Definitely suspenseful now to see how many.
I think that's making the difference. Go Freepers!!!
Thank you, thank you, for that information! I appreciate it very much.
I don’t think Coburn backs down, as he is not running again and is leaving by laying this on our back.
God be with us tomorrow.
The dems have to know this thing is a total wreck. You’d think they would jump ship, rather than face the wrath of the voters in the upcoming election.
Absolutely. Please cite my post to you, if needed.
Your post isn't spam (if that's the charge). It's a much needed public service.
Any Senator, including GOP Senators, who vote for shutting down debate
tomorrow is a vote to fund Obamacare. Pure and simple.
Reid: “There’s No Need For Conversations”
All the more reason to tell senators to vote NO! for cloture!
“You Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar, and there are damn few of us left!”
“Keep calling/faxing/Tweeting/FaceBooking and emailing!!”
Better chance of talking with someone if you call in the morning.
However, leaving a message is good, too.
You can tweet these guys all at once. Someone posted this on Twitter:
“NO on cloture! @McConnellPress @SenAlexander @KellyAyotte @SenatorBurr @SenThadCochran @SenBobCorker @JohnCornyn @SenatorHagan #MakeDCListen “
Yeah, there’s still hope.
I think a lot of what pisses the GOP-e off is the fact they get angry that their voting constituents (us) are smarter and more well informed that the Democratic counterparts. I mean, if you’re a lib, all you gotta do is have a (D) next to your name and as long as you kiss enough media butt, your liberal supporters will come out and pull the lever, no matter what you do because if the media hides it, they don’t know any better.
Our guys on the other hand, should know better. They pull that crap (i.e. Amnesty reform, etc) and we light up the phone lines and make use of the primary system. Experience doing this has taught us some of those “complex” procedural rules Congress tries to pull on us to make us look like we don’t know what’s going on. We don’t give our RINOs cover like the Libs give their Blue Dogs. Look at Manchin, Landrieu, and Pryor. If Reid has the votes, it would not surprise me for Reid to give permission for them to oppose cloture, and all will be forgiven by their constituents because at the heart of every Democrat, the most important thing above anything else is winning and the “understanding” that they come from Red States where Dems wouldn’t normally have a prayer, and that anything with a (D) is preferable to an (R).
We, on the other hand, hold our people accountable and have long memories. I think the GOP-e really wishes we were just as stupid or ignorant and let them be.
Thank goodness for Ted Cruz. For the first time in a long time, we have a leader in Washington trying to fight for liberty. I’m still shocked he and Lee have had to almost single-handedly fight this alone. This isn’t rocket science what their doing.
November 2014: DeRINO Congress
interestingly Dingy Harry tried to push a vote on cloture at 8pm tonight...why the big hurry I wonder? perhaps numbers getting a bit too close for comfort? Perhaps asked to do this by republican leadership to avoid embarrassment tomorrow?
Regardless Sen Lee objected and the vote will be held during daylight hours for all the world to see...bring it on!
CRUZADE!!! LOVE IT!!!
