    GREENLAND, N.H. – Sen. Ted Cruz continued his two-day presidential campaign swing through New Hampshire on Saturday morning with a speech to the Seacoast Republican Women.. . .Before entering the room, Cruz expanded on an allegation he aired Friday, that GOP leaders had cut off his access to campaign donations as retribution for his role in the 16-day government shutdown in October 2013.“In 2013 we got quite a bit of money from DC PACs, and when the defund fight happened that dropped to almost zero,” Cruz said, asked to clarify the allegation he aired Friday.Who does he blame?“It was leadership,”...
  • Cruz calls on Congress to block presidential nominees over executive action

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday that President Obama refuses to accept that only Congress has the authority to establish federal immigration laws and that members should block the president’s nominees and some funding until he rescinds his executive action on the issue. “This is a stunning and sad display by the president,” Cruz, a Republican, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We need to impose real consequence.” Cruz suggested, as he has since Obama announced the executive action Thursday, that Congress should take action next year when Republicans, who already control the House, will also have the majority in the Senate.

    House Republicans have more than taken a page out of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) shutdown playbook. They’re following it to a “T.” GOP leaders on Tuesday introduced a series of bills to fund specific parts of the government in lieu of one sweeping package — a strategy Cruz had floated a week ago and promoted again Monday night as the government was closing its doors. The freshman senator has also been the driving force behind the plan to condition any new spending on the inclusion of provisions scaling back President Obama’s 2010 healthcare reform law. Cruz and GOP leaders have...
  • GOP tension grows as Tea Party senators push off ObamaCare vote

    FOX News ^ | Sept 26, 2013
    Republican tensions grew Thursday as Tea Party-aligned senators rejected a bid to speed up the vote on a bill to fund the government while defunding ObamaCare, with one senior lawmaker accusing his colleagues of posturing -- as the chances of a government shutdown increased. The flurry of activity occurred late Thursday afternoon on the Senate floor. With lawmakers facing a Sept. 30 deadline to pass a spending bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to get approval to hold key votes on Thursday, in order to give the House more time to consider the legislation. But Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah,...
  • Tom Coburn: Wait, I’m a RINO now because I disagree with Ted Cruz on tactics?

    Alternate headline: “RINO surprised to discover he’s a RINO.” No, no, kidding. It’s a testament to how much goodwill Coburn has earned with grassroots righties that he remains a minor player in the RINO/true conservative squabble over defunding despite having been one of the first big-name Republicans to publicly criticize Cruz’s tactics. Or maybe I’m wrong and he’s simply being ignored because a more attractive target for right-wing wrath has inserted himself into this. Coburn gets a pass vis-a-vis McCain, I think, not just because of differences in their record but because Coburn takes no obvious personal pleasure in rebuking...

    When Wendy Davis filibustered for abortion in Texas it was inspiring! She was so strong standing there for all of us in her pink running shoes! What a hero for women everywhere! Now when Ted Cruz filibusters to hold up a bill that he can't stop if only to send a message that most of America doesn't want this? Idiot. Wacko bird. Terrorist. Anarchist. Holding America hostage. This is not helpful. GOP: We will not support this. The difference is striking, no? Dems circle the wagons even to protect adulterers, rapists, embezzlers and people with federal drug charges. The GOP...

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz began a filibuster Tuesday with the intent of defunding the Affordable Care Act, known also as Obamacare. The Texas Republican noted while on the Senate floor, “I intend to speak about defunding ObamaCare until I am unable to stand.” Cruz additionally asserted that Democrats are not listening to their constituents in regards to the health care law, which is set to take effect Oct. 1. “I rise today in opposition to ObamaCare in an effort to speak for 26 million Texans and 300 million Americans,” Cruz asserted. “It is time quite frankly to make...

    Newly elected junior Senator Ted Cruz is really shaking things up in Washington. He campaigned on a promise to do just that and he has easily fulfilled that promise, even though he has been in Washington for less than two months. In the United States Senate, things are supposed to be genial and comfortable, or so says the status quo. Ted Cruz is not playing along and some of his fellow Senators aren't so happy about his unwillingness to go along, just to get along. I would contend that's maybe what we need in Washington, someone who will see what...
