Hot damn! Though I hate that the bill passed, I'm very glad to se both of my senators, Crapo and Risch, voted against it. They did as their constituents asked, so I'm going to send them both thank-you notes.

Those other 25 turncoats now own Obamacare.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

Openly defying the Constitution once again. A fond goodbye to the rule of law.

Thank you.

And let’s communicate our thanks to the no voters:

Once again, The 19 Rep who voted no on cloture:
Vitter,Paul,Lee,Cruz,Crapo,Enzi,Fischer,Roberts,Scott,Heller,Grassley,Toomey,Moran, Rubio, Shelby,Risch,Inhofe, Portman, Sessions

I have been told this a neglected but extremely powerful method of communicating with our elected representatives: THANK THEM WHEN THEY DO THE RIGHT THING.

‘Fess up now, each of us could have done more.

Respectfully disagree. We strongly supported the Tea Party, but the Republican Party marginalized our reps at every opportunity. Believe me, the culture in the GOP cannot be changed. There is too much money and status quo interests embedded deeply in the party. And they control it.

Attempting to right the ship is a fool’s errand IMHO.

Roberts could go down in history as a great patriot if he fessed up. But he wont’t. He’s a creature of Washington, DC.

You’re right, adios to the GOP. It’s not just us on Free Republic who say this. Lots of other people on other blogs express the same thing. They know when to fold ‘em.

So the Dems are now gonna be forcing all Americans to get health insurance from big corporations after years of railing against them in favor of the little guy. I’m gonna need some time to get over the shock of this /mega sarc tag.

Sorry you feel like that. O’ Reilly and Krauthammer said the same thing BEFORE Cruz spoke.

I heard him speak. I went to sleep aroud 9 or so then got up again around 12 mindnight and stayed up the rest of the time. I’ve never been so energized about the political scenery than that morning.

Jimmy Carter woke us all up. I think people in this country need to experience the pure depth of what we’ve become, then we’ll throw the bums out.

I look to Cruz to be the real deal. We lost this battle, but there’s more to do, and the real fight is in the House.

After the shenanigans in the senate I’ll never again give a penny to the repubs...only to conservatives. I’ve got about 30 years left if I am lucky. Not a cent.

No republican should have voted yes.
Let the democrats have all the glory.
Let them own Obamascare, lock stock and barrel.
It’s time to take back the repub party from
the quisling senators and so called leaders.

They must have given Rubio permission to vote “No”.

Amen brother. Cruz and Palin types wouldn’t want it any other way. Give glory to God in everything we do.

Indeed. Tyranny will be worse as history has shown. Our red line has to be defended or we’ll look like N.Korea in 20 years.

The GOP made the mistake of putting three Doormat Republicans in for the final innings of three important POTUS Games.

Batter “Doormat” Dole struck out first, “Doormat” McCain struck out second, and then “Doormat” Romney was called out on three strikes right down the middle.

All that training, and he didn’t even swing! In fact, the bat never left his shoulder. However, Romney did have a great smile and good hair.

With the POTUS Games lost, the GOP Big Tent fell into disrepair.

Gradually, the increasing stench made it obvious that the old GOP had died when Romney lost in 2012.

We are just now finally casting off the dead weight of the old GOP in the Senate.

We are looking forward to the Senate Primary Season.

The lingering stench of the putrid GOP dead weight was decreased a lot this week by nice cool breezes coming out of TEXAS and Utah.

One benefit of a battle is to find out for sure who your hidden enemies are.
