Bill goes nowhere, however, without House’s nod. Keep up the hard ball, Cruz....
Truth. And look at the percentages of the non-Democrat votes...roughly 25% RINO, 20% Conservative.
That is, sadly, probably far off...
If someone can post who voted for cloture I would appreciate it. Be nice to know which side of the butter is breaded with our senators.
It’s time you greedy, thieving little taxpayers be brought to heel!
I think this shows that it's time for a peaceful negotiation for splitting the USA into two pieces.
The Socialist side will begin to crumble after about 2 years while our prosperity will skyrocket!
THANK ALL YALL FOR YOUR UNTIRING EFFORTS TO HARASS AND SOON REPLACE OUR SORRY GOP SENATORS.
LET US ENDEAVOR TO CAUSE OUR SORRY GOP SENATORS TO GROW EVEN MORE INCREASINGLY IRRITATED.
THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS BORN ON THE US SENATE FLOOR WHEN SENATOR TED CRUZ BEGAN HIS 21 HOUR INSPIRATIONAL FILIBUSTER.
WE IN THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY ARE IN HIS DEBT.
THIS IS JUST ONE OF MANY BATTLES TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
WE WILL PREVAIL !
Never have I seen the federal government so opposed to those citizens demanding liberty, justice and freedom. The lines have been drawn and the Republican establishment have made it abundantly clear on which side they stand.
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
(idaho done good)
Well at least we can leave the GOP with a clear mind and with no regrets. We gave them so much leeway and they caved in every time to the left. The RINOS, otherwise known as Democratic Party infiltrators, showed us their hand time and time again, and we kept forgiving them. Now with a clear conscience we can say sayonara to the sorry Republican Party.
GOP-e gutless wonders. The old bipartisan club doesn’t like the young upstarts in Cruz and Lee. Keep your score cards handy because we real elephants will remember. War on Rats and RINO’s.
So, I guess this means that the senate has voted to shut down the government.
I am certain that will be the headline to tomorrow’s Washington Post.
So what? Accomplishing much in the Senate was always a long shot anyway. The House has to pay along and the House even the leadership seems to have located the odd testicle. Plus no result here is still a win. Not one of those cases ever you have to get something passed to succeed. No action is a win because no Death Care funding.
I hate to say it but I have become so cynical about politicians that I believe Cruz knew the Senate would vote as it did. I think filibuster may have been political theater on his part. Sorry!
I have to admit that we in Kansas did not elect RINO’s.
25 Rinos RINOS...please use the proper terminology.
RE: The Senate waived budget rules, voted to strip out the Obamacare defunding on a 54-44 party line vote, and passed the bill.
I believe there are 46 Republican Senators. Which 2 voted NOT to defund Obamacare?
Openly defying the Constitution once again. A fond goodbye to the rule of law.
You mean they scammed the bill.
