For those in Rio Linda and at CNN, the TEA Party is Americans who have to pay for this bull****.
Read the tea leaves, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn. There’s a primary in your future.
Remember: 2014 OPEN SEASON on RINOs is right around the corner! Make sure that you are ready to take down as many RINOs as possible. There is NO BAG LIMIT!
FOR THE CHILDREN, of course.
Primary all of the GOPe DOPEes. Someone needs to artistically render Boehner and McConnell as “Cavemen”.
Is there actually a new, higher formal debt limit, or is it just more of “spend what you want, no limit”?
I was unable to find that answered in the article.
If there is a limit, what is it?
Help I've fallen and I can't get up!
Do they think the weight of a budget bill can hold us down?
Plus, to the idiots, morons and imbeciles at CNN: it's TEA Party as in Taxed Enough Already Party.
Not a blow to the tea party. If anything, it should infuriate and energize the tea party. This is a blow to the GOP-e which may very well be routed for its continuing betrayal of America.
I would argue that Senator Cruz concluded from the beginning that his filibuster attempt would fail. He did us a service by managing to flush out the RINO’s that are working in concert with the Dems.

Cornyn Votes Against Raising the Debt Ceiling
Feb 12 2014
WASHINGTONU.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after voting against raising the debt ceiling.
After five years of out-of-control White House spending, including a jobless, trillion-dollar stimulus, now is hardly the time to give the President carte blanche to continue his spending spree. I voted against raising the debt ceiling because we need sensible reforms to cut down on spending and restrain Washington going forward.
Between the backstabbing of McConnell, Cornyn, Bonehead and Cantor, the stellar leadership of the republican party they now in the leadership role of the cave party.
Their embarrassing leadership is not something that is learned over time for them it is as natural as breathing.
But Cruz made sure Mcconnel showed his true colors. He can’t back away from this vote.

How is this a blow to the tea party? If anything, it gets them more supporters from mainstream GOP.
Well conservatives: you sit on your collective asses being the the smartest people in the room and this is what you get.
The push for a more centrist government has brought us the hardest left wing government ever. :)
>> “In a blow to tea party”
Only the RINOs went for this concession. Not a blow to TEA.
Idiot communists... it was a blow to every American so go blow obama you pos!
Oh noes, the tea party is dead again.
IMO - If Cornyn can get re-elected (in Texas) after this turn of events, the opportunity to bring our country under control through the ballot box is gone.
