I don't even believe that. I remember one account of a women coming here to get treated because she was having to wait to long for treatment, if she hadn't come to this country she would have died. I've heard many more similar accounts. I think your full of bull.
As are you.

No games, the real deal. A politician actually doing what he was voted to do!!! And the people cheer!!
That's not cheering you hear for the Cruz missile. They're yelling for him to shut his arrogant puss.
This demagogue needs to be put on Cruz control. But fear not. There's always Michele Bachmann and her psychotic rants.

Stand by. If the Cruz creature continues his self-serving lunacy much longer, we may ask you to, um, provide certain services.

A politician doing what he was elected to do!! No wonder Democrats don't recognize what Cruz is doing. They go to Washington to rabble rouse, and fill their pockets with taxpayer hard earned money. I must say I am enjoying seeing them stopped in their tracks by a handful of Republicans. If only we could keep them at the Gate for a couple more years!!

Last I check Cruz still gets paid during the government shutdown. And I don't have proof but I wouldn't be surprised if he's taking advantage of his taxpayer paid government healthcare benefits which are very good compared to the private sector. I guess that makes him a Dem? Pfft...No. he's your typical GOP TEA RINO - say one thing, reap the financial benefits from the taxpayers at the same time.

When you work you are rewarded with a salary. The non productive would know that if they had jobs. Of course Cruz gets paid. Obama gets paid, and he spends less time working then Cruz does. Cruz was sent to Washington to stop the Democrats from putting us into bankruptcy, and so far he is holing his own against a tidal wave of big spenders.

Senator Cruz is more popular after he decided to step forward, and say what many Americans wanted to say but were not in a position to talk about. That is why the Anti American Democrats are so upset. They thought they had a free ride forever.
