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.

Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, it is a high-volume ping list!
Rubio doing a great job on the Senate floor right now.
I wondered what he was up to, haven’t seen any tweets from him lately.
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
May posterity forget that you were our countrymen, John mcCain.
Whoa! Ted Cruz isn’t bashing Boehner?!
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.
He’s voting so to the senate bill.
DC is 95% theater.
Spoke outside the chamber as McConnell was speaking inside.----what a wide chasm between the two.
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.
Dingy hairy may call him joint speaker of the house . . . . Oh wait, never mind.
...for the ugly.
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!
Its all OVER dude!
You need to wake up and make it soon. Rube-o- is no conservative and will screw us all given half a chance.
Mr. Cruz has just begun to fight, I’m with him all the way.
George Soros probably gave Rubio permission to speak.
You give lots of food for thought.....
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
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.
