Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says he’s standing up to Obamacare on the Senate floor. However, experts say his ongoing hours-long filibuster on Tuesday has no chance of derailing the Affordable Care Act. Among his wide-ranging topics: Green Eggs and Ham, Ashton Kutcher and White Castle.
In Ashton Kuschen's speech: The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart, and being thoughtful, and being generous.Did he mean being thoughtful and generous to the 1%? And smart? Do Cruz and Limbaugh (who also loved the speech) think they're the party of smart? Is that why they call the rest of us elites and make fun of professors and teachers and science?
Generous? No. Thoughtful? No. Smart. Certainly not. Hard-working?
Under the bill they voted for, states now have to require food stamp recipients to be drug-test-tested and work at least 20 hours a week - the same thing I was going to suggest for congressional Republicans. (Bill Maher) Cruz says in the video Congressmen are in "cheap suits" as Cruz leaves his good-luck ostrich black boots at home a fellow Republican last week whined about making only $170,000 a year.
Ted Cruz is NOT conducting a filibuster. There is a scheduled vote that will take place on Wednesday, period. Cruz won't stop that. He's merely making a long pointless speech in an attempt to con people into thinking that he's filibustering -- even though he's not He's a phony and a con man.
Apparently he has succeeded in conning the person who wrote the title of this Swampland article. The "Watch: Ted Cruz’ Filibuster ..." title promotes ignorance.
The other day, I was led to believe by virtually every media outlet that the Dems had walked out of the Benghazi hearings just before the victims' families were to testify. I try to be thorough by getting several takes on questionable stories. This time, it didn't help an I didn't find out that it was completely untrue!
I was p!ssed off, to put it mildly. I was enraged though to hear Chuck Todd say that the media has no responsibility to report the truth! I see reporting like this in an entirely new, and VERY negative light.
