The Cruz faux filibuster was filled with a whole lot of nothing with some pretty blatant lies thrown in among them;
Cruz falsely claimed that the spouses of 15,000 UPS employees will be "left without health insurance" and forced into "an exchange with no employer subsidy." UPS is dropping coverage for spouses only if they can get insurance with their own employer.
Cruz said the "IRS employees union has asked to be exempted from Obamacare." Not so. The union wants its workers to be treated like any other worker with employer-provided health insurance. It opposes a GOP bill that it says, contrary to law, would "take coverage away from employees who already receive it through their employers."
Cruz said the unemployment rate for black teens "is over 10 times higher than it is for college graduates — 38.2%." True, but that's comparing apples to oranges. The unemployment rate for white teens, aged 16 to 19, is also high, at 20.5%. There's still a racial disparity, but the rate is nearly double, not 10 times higher.
Cruz cited an outdated quote from Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, to back up his claim that Obamacare is slowing job growth. Zandi told us the slowdown in job growth at small businesses is "no longer the case."
Cruz repeated the false claim that members of Congress are exempt from the health care law.
The law requires congressional members and their staffs to get insurance through the newly created exchanges, so they are not exempt. In fact, the law prevents them from getting insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, like other federal employees. However, the federal government, will continue to make contributions toward the premiums of lawmakers and their staffs — just as most large employers do for their employees.
Cruz said, "Obamacare has a philosophy: empower government over your life, put a government bureaucrat between you and your doctor." The law doesn't create a government-run system. If anything, the law comes between you and your insurance company, forbidding them from capping your coverage or charging you more based on health status.
These examples came from USA Today.
All paid insurance for overpaid federal government employees should be terminated...let them suffer with ObamaKKKare.

After all, if ObamaKKKare is so wonderful, why are they fighting it so hard?

What in the hell did that blowhard Cruz drone about for 21 hours? Fer kerrrisst sakes.
If I could briefly interrupt the Looney Lily, Queen of the Useless firing squad aiming at Ted Cruz, let's talk about something we all agree on. And by "we all," I mean a majority of the American people, the Teamsters, many Democrats and every single last Republican.

Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster.

It was passed illegally without the House ever voting on the Senate bill and became law absent a single Republican vote -- even "the girls from Maine" and "the girl from Arizona" -- the only major legislation ever enacted on a strict party-line vote.

The Supreme Court had to violate the Constitution's separation of powers to uphold Obamacare as a "tax" -- despite the fact that no elected body could ever have enacted such a massive tax hike even with the sleazy parliamentary tricks used to pass this bill.

Proving that everyone hates it, Congress has now exempted itself from Obamacare's provisions, having asked for, and received, a waiver from President Obama.

Yes, these are the exact same politicians who lecture us that Obamacare is "the law of the land!" (So are our immigration laws.)

And the exact same politicians who huffily announce that the Supreme Court upheld it!(The court also upheld the First Amendment in Citizens United, but that doesn't stop Obama from demanding Congress overturn the First Amendment.)

They are the same sanctimonious frauds who tell us that Obamacare is "the right thing to do!"

THOSE SAME GUYS WHO WAIVED OBAMACARE FOR THEMSELVE. If national health care is so great, why don't they want it?

Unlike the Empty Suited Flipper in the White House who isn't even qualified to flip burgers, Cruz is standing up for something he believes in.

LIAR! The US delegation to Thatcher's funeral was led by former Secretaries of State George Shultz and Howard Baker and included the US Ambassador to Great Britain Louis Susman and the Embassy Charge D'Affaires Barbara Stephenson.
Let's also remember that Margaret Thatcher had been out of power for 20 years and Hugo Chavez was the current president of Venezuela when he died.
Both delegations consisted of diplomatic personnel.

The fact that the same politicians who passed ObamaCare -- "without reading it to find out what is in it" -- have excused themselves from what is in 100% proof that Democrats/liberals are the biggest hypocrites.

As usual, in EVERY single category of Crap Forced On the Country by the Left, liberals always have a work-around for themselves.

They love the public schools and denounce school choice -- but their kids go to St. Albans or Sidwell Friends. As Al Gore responded to a question from a black journalist for Time magazine who asked him why he opposed school vouchers while sending his own kids to private schools, "My children -- you can leave them out of this!"

Oh, now I see.

Liberals are always eager to release criminals and block crucial crime-fighting strategies such as stop-and-frisk -- which they announce from the safety of their antiseptic, crime-free neighborhoods.

Just like libs love the homeless, but try putting a homeless shelter in their doorman buildings.

They tell us guns won't protect us -- and then we find out the loudest of them all have armed guards. Staunch gun-control advocate Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago had three armed guards with him at all times, as well as an armored car. Mayor Rahm Emanuel also has armed guards and an armored car. Chicago aldermen are allowed to carry any guns they like. But until very recently (we hope!) the people of Chicago were virtually prohibited from being armed.

Are you beginning to see the pattern?

Liberals love affirmative action -- provided their offspring still get into Harvard, Yale or Princeton. How about they give up their kids' seats to disadvantaged minorities?

Class warriors Warren Buffett and the Nation magazine's Katrina vanden Heuvel hired phalanxes of lawyers to fight the IRS when informed they weren't paying the government what they owed. George Soros and the Kennedy family stash their money in offshore accounts, safe from U.S. taxation.

Liberals also strongly support every manner of environmental regulation -- unless it blocks the view from the Kennedy compound. In deference to Teddy Kennedy's ferocious opposition to wind farms off the coast of Cape Cod, the federal government reduced the number of turbines, moved them farther off the coast and ordered them painted white to blend in with the view.

There may have been a time in history when libs had good intentions, now it is all about their feeling good...sanctimonious hypocrites that they are.

Truckers Convoy to D.C. Oct. 11-13
The strike, the report said, will be coordinated with an invasion of Washington.
“The protest calls for truckers to make their way to Washington, D.C., in a massive convoy in an effort to call attention to, among other things, the Benghazi cover-up, the recent attack which killed 25 members of Seal Team 6, ever rising fuel prices, and claims that 'President' Obama has engaged in treasonous crimes.”
One advocate wrote: The American People are bleeding out with no relief in sight. It is time to change the news. Let us show our elected officials that we are 100 percent fed up with corruption and the blatant disregard of the Constitution that they swore to Uphold.
Blog author Mac Slavo noted:“The corruption and need for real change in America’s government has transcended political lines. If the hundreds of thousands of truckers across America who keep our delivery systems running efficiently were to join together and stop hauling freight for even a week, the impact would be devastating and could not be ignored. There’d be no food on the shelves, no fuel at our gas stations, and no medical supplies at our pharmacies and hospitals...
Support these truckers & America - if you own a business, close the doors for those 3 days, do not shop, travel or buy gas on those 3 days unless absolutely neccesary. GOD Bless!
Excellent idea. Count me in! Passing this on.

Community organizers work within the community with their businesses, social organizations & churches to set up job training, child care, to help people improve their financial standing & become more self sufficient.

Rush Limbaugh has declared war on Fox News, and is attacking the network for using liberal talking points and not supporting Ted Cruz.
Fox News and Limbaugh are two of the three biggest players in conservative media.(The Drudge Report completes the un-holy trinity of right wing propaganda.). When they start going after each other, the foundation of the Republican propaganda machine is cracking.
What is happening here is that the Republican Party is literally tearing itself apart from top to bottom. House Republicans are fighting with each other. Senate Republicans are split in two. The party leadership is trying to stop a far right rebellion that will destroy the economy, and party’s top two propagandists are now at each other’s throats.
The Republican Party is crumbling before our very eyes.
The intra-party warfare isn’t really about Obamacare and funding the government. This is the same power struggle that has been going on for nearly six years. Republicans aren’t unified at all, and even their ability to dominate the media with a unified message is on the verge of complete collapse. Right wing media has been driving the Republican Party for years. If they can no longer agree on a message and direction, it’s pretty much over for the Republicans.
Disagree. There is a battle going on for the heart and soul of the Republican party. Very much akin to what Reagan fought against.

The Bush, Tokyo Rove, RINO, permanent political class currently running the Republican party is out of touch with its constituents.
They have as in the past even provided opposition research to the media and Democrats to defeat candidates they dislike as well as the Tea Party.

This permanent political class, propped up by donations to Tokyo Rove's American Crossroads, refuses to relinquish control over their failed policies which have failed miserably.

We are witnessing the last gasp of the RINO's, soon to be replaced by ethical elected officials accountable to the people.

If they have coverage now, why don't they just keep what they have?
I'd ask how its humanly possible that you are this slow on the uptake, but I've had plenty of prior experience proving you don't meet the primary criteria.

ASSUMING that existing policies don't get cancelled (as many major employers are and will continue to do), the implementation of odumbocare will cause people already privately insured outside of the exchanges to experience rising premiums to pay for those indigent losers (like you) that ARE in the exchanges. That's the insidious nature of odumbocare; i.e. its a hidden tax on people who have already made responsible decisions.

I know you won't understand this concept, because your primitive leftist mind works off the basic premise that you are OWED something in life just because you exist.......
