Senate Republicans — who voted against his appropriation of Obamacare funds but did not challenge the validity of it.

....therein lies the rub, at least part of it.....Republicans did not challenge the validity....

Senator Cruz has been trying desperately trying to save our tattered Constitution which Obamacare will ultimately diminish it's remaining strength......It is the Constitution folks and the Tea Party which the 'Reidites' are terrified of....Obamacare is Thoroughly ANTI-CONSTITUTION AND THOROUGHLY TOXIC!

I make this the third of a series of articles by Andy McCarthy on the subject of defunding Obamacare. These three articles represent the clearest thinking that I have encountered on the subject.

We all know that low information voters have absolutely no interest in the constitutional foundation upon which this republic rests and to them Andy McCarthy's cogent analysis might as well not have been written. But there are some things which come from the bottom up and some things which trickle down from the top.

A political campaign cannot ultimately succeed if it is grounded on nothing more than counting noses, it must first have intellectual integrity which provides the indispensable foundation upon which an emotional appeal can be launched. Andy McCarthy here provides the intellectual and constitutional foundation so necessary for a political campaign to prosper.

We are fortunate in Ted Cruz that we have a man leading this cause who is fully grounded in the Constitution and who is fortunately fully in accord with Andy McCarthy's analysis. More, he can reach beyond a dry constitutional analysis and speak a language to low information voters which they can understand and, crucially, appeal to their emotions.

In other words, first we find out what's constitutional and then we tell them why it's good.

The Senate is not permitted to originate spending, as Majority Leader Harry Reid did on Friday, with the indulgence of Senate Republicans...

Correction: The senate is not EMPOWERED to originate spending. They are obviously permitted to do so, because... ...well, because they've been permitted to do so.

As Cruz and Lee are learning, it turns out they were kidding.

Now I understand.

When a rat swears to support and defend the constitution, he lies.

When a pubbie swears to support and defend the constitution, he doesn't mean it.
