AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Ted Cruz is decrying a deal brokered by his U.S. Senate colleagues to avert a default and reopen the government - but isn't planning a filibuster to derail it.

In a statement Wednesday, Cruz slammed the Senate and Washington in general for not doing more to shield Americans from the nation's new health care law.

But he also praised the House for its "bold stance" during the government shutdown and debt-limit fight.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

I think you have to be cautious, at the very least, in saying nice things of any kind about Rubio around here. I think he is officially in the same category as McCain at this point.

They are passing the Senate bill.

No one will challenge Bohner either

fwiw, Rubio is not in the same category as McCain. Rubio made the mistake of thinking he could solve the invasion problem as soon as he got to DC, maybe thinking the rhetoric was campaign hyperbole. He got played badly by Schumer and mccain. He underestimated how strongle people across the US feel about the invasion.

I haven't given up on Rubio. He stood firm with Cruz during the 21 hours. He didn't back down on Obamacare.

We give up on people for one mistake. The ones I give up on are the minimcains....Ayotte and Flake....who after their first misstep just kept stepping in RINO quicksand. Now they're official traitors and saboteurs.

I think the plan is to basically get small concessions now and then DO THE WHOLE THING OVER AGAIN IN 2014 when people actually see it in their checks and it’s an election year.

What must be done is publishing whatever it is the Democrats have that’s used to extort McConnell’s cooperation.

He has a secret that the Democrats use, and McConnell is loathe to make public, that we the voters must know before it destroys our nation.

No one’s reputation is more important than the future stability of this nation!

Why do we care about the credit rating of theses united States?

Why should we want it to be “cheap” for the present generation of politicians to spend the money of future generations instead of relying upon present voters for the revenue they require?

Credit might be a great idea when it comes to an individual who has but one life to live and doesn’t pass on his or her debt’s to his or her children, but its a terribly unfair & unjust idea for a country!

SO why is it that we should desire to preserve this credit rating?

Indeed the reason we have such large amounts of debt today is in no small a measure a direct result to the ease by which past generations of voters were able to enact burdens upon future generations of voters rather than their own, while wreaping the benefit of their spending now.

If you care for democracy, and justice for the future I urge you to destroy the credit rating of theses united States.

There can be no more justice than there is fiscal accountability so long as such easy borrowing exist.
