I thought this dude passed on.
“.......... Cruz, backed by Tea Party groups, lobbied his colleagues throughout the week to block the bill in order to prevent Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) from removing the ObamaCare provisions.
In the end, 19 of Cruz’s colleagues backed him: GOP Sens. Jerry Moran (Kan.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Richard Shelby (Ala.), Jame Risch (Idaho), James Inhofe (Okla.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), David Vitter (La.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Pat Roberts (Kan.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Pat Toomey (Pa.)........”
Time to make Ted Cruz the SENIOR Senator from Texas. Cornyn has to go.
I see what you did there :-) Make it two.
To see Harry Reid get caned in the well of the Senate, I would pay big money on PPV.
Sandinista Harkin go move to North Korea.
Harkin announced he’s leaving the Senate after a bazillion years there.
Maybe that’s what you heard.
Recently there was another Dim Senator, Lautenberg of NJ, who did pass on.
For heaven's sake. Notice all the Tea Party bashing lately?
The GOP and Democrats are scared to death of the Tea Party.
I think 2014 is gonna look very different up in congress.
Exactly right re: O’reilly, hume and even krauthammer
they are scared! I can smell it. We must have more power than we think.
Someone in our group ought to write our Declaration of Independence from liberalism.
Careful son, the War of Northern Aggression was never good.
IMHO, we need to rent a barge, float it on the Potomac at night, have the Tea Partiers dress as Indians, and dump effigies of RAT Congressmen into the Potomac. Do it during the furlough when nobody can patrol.
I think those of of who openly acknowledge ourselves as official members of the nonpartisan TEA member majority, vastly outnumber elected government officials...at every and all levels.
Add the people who are just now waking up, and smelling the horse shit, and it becomes:
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a Republic!
War is always ugly, but in all wars the victors declare the terms of the peace.
