Since the ABC News report (on its website) now shows an error message - poof! all gone - but it's still being reported at the Houston Chronicle.
A fuller article about Cruz on "This Week."
And Ted is correct the shut down was the fault of the dims
Yup. Obama/Reid threatened to shut down the government if they didn’t get their way. And they followed through. But the weakling RINOs wimped out as usual.
Obama holds the nation hostage.
Ted is exactly correct, and everybody knows it. Most don’t have the nerve to say it, so puppy-whipped to either cheerlead for the Obamination or give up your right of expression, so those who hate you (anyway) wont be openly mad at you.
Tea Party Patriots your nation needs you now.
So, Ted pulled a ‘Phil’ on them, you say? Good on him!
Government “SLOW DOWN” is a much more accurate phrase.
But why worry about the truth.
The Republican dominated House did its job to keep the federal government running by sending bill after bill to the Senate which funded the entire federal government except Obamacare. The irresponsible Democrat dominated Senate refused to do its duty to keep the federal government running. And Obama gleefully implemented a shut down crafted to “punish” America instead of serving it by maintaining minimum essential functions of federal government.
Were we still a Constitutional Republic, our citizens would be howling for Democrats’ blood and impeachment & removal of that illegal alien in the White House!
Let me guess. Na, I don’t need to. It was Dingy Harry Reid who refused to consider anything that came from the House.
I believe that’s been Cruz’s position all along.
Obama holds the nation hostage.
No truer words spoken.
Now we need to work like H to take it back!!!
16 weeks? Wasn’t it 16 days?
The Houston Chronicle and every other MSM outlet was telling us over & over the GOP was gonna take it in the throat. Why would anyone believe the republicans went ahead then and caused it to happen?
In fact, he blames President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders, ABC News reports in a story on its website.
The shut down was clearly owned by Obama......
Reid had the full backing of the poser in chief who made it clear he would not negotiate. Dictatorial behavior at it’s worst.
Quote from Ted: “Lets see if Obama is willing to shut down the government to fund Obamacare.” I guess he was.
Meanwhile, they have convinced enough people that the President and the Majority Leader of the Senate have no such power.
You can't fix Stupid, because it doesn't require fixing if you're a Democrat. The Stupid follow them slavishly.
> Quote from Ted: Lets see if Obama is willing to shut down the government to fund Obamacare. I guess he was.
Obama’ bonus check from Soros for gettin ‘er dun was probably in his bank account the day he got the ACA passed and he doesn’t want to have to refund it...
