LIVE Thread: Senate cloture vote. Guess the number of RINOs that vote to support "Dingy" Harry
C-span 2

Posted on 09/27/2013 6:59:01 AM PDT by ken5050

Senate just came into session. Happily, Dingy Harry is sparing us any commentary early on this morning, as is McConnell. Debate goes until 12:10, at which time there is 30 minutes reserved for majority and minority leaders , then the vote. Will there be any more GOP intramural fireworks on the senate floor?

just called Casey - told his staff I know the direction the left is taking us, and that I’m probably pissing into a stiff wind by even bothering, but reminded him that he allegedly represents me, that I _do_ vote, every time, and politely asked that he oppose cloture.

That’s so funny, I called Casey’s office and said I know he’d follow Obama into Hell and he only represents Pennsylvania’s Democrats then politely asked him to defund Obamacare.

Great minds think alike :-)

>>>If you’re correct, that means that the entire GOP senate leadership voted AGAINST the will of the caucus..

Yep. I also posted that those voting no, for the most part, will do so because of pressure. The yes votes will be those who are safe, or who don't have elections coming up.

Except Cornyn. I've given his office an earful. And I meant every word. I know MANY of my friends here in TX feel the same way. Some were the ones who talked me into voting for Romney...because he was better than the alternative.

Those friends are now EXTREMELY apologetic to me...have seen the errors of their ways...and vowed: NEVER AGAIN.

What a dolt - more “law of the land” stuff. “Stuff” because they say it (”law of the land”) but they don't mean it.


You are correct! A law of the land is a law that applies to all. President, Congress-critters, and wealthy industrialist, and poor working men and middle class families alike. Any law with waivers attached is no law of the land.

I have great admiration for Sen. Cruz and Lee. Although the word ‘admiration’ really is inadequate.

Sen. Cruz:

“Listen to, and fight for, the American people!”

How can a potus unilaterally change “the law of the land” before it is even enacted and unliterally exempt the entire US congress, their staffs, and entire special interest groups from complying with it?

After Cruz spoke, I have a very good feeling about this. Not a gloating, beat the democrats kind of feeling. But a “right for the country” kind of feeling.

For what it’s worth, I called my Economic Illiterates For Obama Club members, Cardin and Mikulski. Cardin’s office said the calls were strongly against cloture (in Maryland). Big Government Babs phone rang once and hung up.

I believe the Republican party can be saved, Ted Cruz is why. If we fight and get more like him we can still be Republican and conservative. I detest the RINOs but our best chance of beating the socialists is if we can keep some form of the party together and I'm praying we can. No compromise on principles, a conservative takeover of the party
