Cruzin’ with Ted

1_photo


It is 1:30 a.m. Pacific time and Ted Cruz is still going and going like the Energizer Bunny.

I haven’t been covering the Defunding Movement because it’s more about process than policy and because I think it’s a Quixotic quest that is doomed to fail. But sometimes the situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part, and Senator Ted Cruz is just the guy to do it.

Ted must be doing something right because he’s got panties on both sides of the aisle in a huge wad. The Democrats want Obamacare to be the law of the land. But the dirty little secret in Washington is that the GOP establishment wants to keep Obamacare too, they just want to blame the Democrats for it.

So Ted Cruz is fighting to win in a rigged fight he is supposed to lose. He refuses to take a dive. And though he’s almost certainly gonna lose this particular fight, he just might stir up the Proles enough that he triggers a genuine repeal movement that upsets the best laid plans of rats and men in Washington.

Even worse from the point of view of the Washington Insiders (aka: the crony capitalists) is that Ted Cruz could ride that movement into the White House.

See, Ted is not one of them. Neither is Sarah Palin or Rand Paul. By “them” I am referring to the corrupt duopoly that controls Washington D.C. The Democratic establishment and the GOP establishment make up the two heads of the duopoly. They fight with each other because they both want to be on top, but they will quickly unite as one to destroy any independent outsiders who try to gain power, especially a genuine populist who is truly interested in serving the people.

There are legitimate arguments for and against a national health care program. All the other industrialized nations have some form of national healthcare. But none of them force their citizens to buy health insurance from private “for-profit” companies.

OBAMACARE DOES NOT PROVIDE HEALTH CARE! It “provides” health insurance to some people who didn’t have it before. Very expensive health insurance that does not even guarantee you will be able to get actual health care.

Some people stand to make a humongous shitpot of money off of Obamacare. Those people are the health insurance companies that are about to get a bunch of new customers who have to purchase health care insurance. Those people are not happy with Ted Cruz right now.

Which is why you should #StandWithCruz.

    Cruz now reading from Bastiat’s The Law, about lawful plunder and speaking about corporations and regulatory capture.

    This man fucking rocks.

    That is true. But defunding it puts us in a worse state than we are now. It leaves the mandates and all of the other regs in place and takes away the funding so people can actually cope with the law. That is pure evil, worse than leaving the law intact.

      That is the sunk costs argument. Obama has been hiding the costs so no one could squawk. Then claim we already spent too much. Asking the nation to go over the fiscal cliff (both personally and nationally) so some can benefit is evil.

    Absolutely spot on post, myiq. Obamacare does not provide health care. And you have no idea how much self-control I’m having to maintain to not laugh in the faces of my obot FB friends who have just now finally figured that out.

      never worked for Metro North. Remember one guy who retired from Conrail was getting pension and went to work for Metro North and retired and got a pension from the state of New York.
      Not making any excuses for these loads, they make it harder on other workers because someone has to pick up the slack.
      hope the union does not get their jobs back for them. too many willing workers out there that would love the good salary and benefits paid by railroads to put up with the loads

    Nothing Ted Cruz says can be true because he’s not using a teleprompter. For 19+ hours and counting.

    • Karma says:

      And no ‘uh’ or ‘ums’ or ‘this whole notions’ either. Clearly he doesn’t care like Obama does.

    The establishment GOP really really really hates Ted Cruz:

      Another Congress Critter called Congressional Tea Partiers anarchists. IIRC, it was a Rep.

      • Karma says:

        Reid just pulled out the anarchist label too while claiming they are doing anything they can ‘to hurt govt’

        Hurt the govt!?

    the next dem vs rep war coming up
    kerry signs UN arms bill
    Senate Republicans say no way we will agree to this

      The treaty includes an expectation that signatory countries will establish a registry of gun owners.

      True story.

  33. helenk3 says:

    Ted Cruz has the dems and some republicans talking to themselves.
    When was the last time Congress has been told “LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO HIRED YOU”
    I do not remember ever hearing a congress critter do that for the American people

  34. helenk3 says:

    Ted Cruz will be remembered for this effort for the American people

    good article

    Cruz and the senators that stand with him might be like those who stood at the Alamo for what they believe in. The battle cry “Remember The Alamo” galvanized many people to fight.
    “Cruz Missile” just galvanized a whole lot of American people

  38. DandyTIger says:

    That was amazing. Ted was amazing. And I can say the opposite of the Dems that followed when it was done. What a contrast. How any any sane and rational person listen to Harry Reid after that and be on his side.

    • helenk3 says:

      watching the dems and some rinos jump up and down and have a temper tantrum tells me the Ted Cruz made his point and scared the hell out of them
