Sen. Ted Cruz just finished reading "Green Eggs and Ham." and takng questions from Sen. Enzi.

Unfortunately, Dingy Harry Reid is trying to use parliamentary maneuvers to allow a cloture vote to where a simple majority can add Obamacare back into the bill. Reid is being aided by RINO Senators like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who can seem to find his manhood and stand up like a leader.



McConnell is being aided by the other Texas Senator John Cornyn. Both McConnell and Cornyn are up for re-election next year. Both should be primaried and defeated.

For several years now the Republican rhetoric against Obamacare has been vicious and savage. As more stories come in about the harmful effects the legislation will have on our economy, we learn that the Affordable Care Act is anything but and more Americans are losing full time jobs to it. Each news story causes Republican rhetoric to amp up and Republican fundraising petitions to start up. The GOP has made a mint off opposition to Obamacare and, ironically, now attack conservatives as being in this fight for the money. Takes one to know one, except these groups are not stopping. It is dawning on Republican leaders these groups actually, really believe in this fight.
Like a light switch flipping on, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are casting light on the scurrying of Republican roaches in and out of the Capitol. Republican congressmen and Senators are now openly attacking Cruz and Lee. Outside groups like Americans for Tax Reform and outside media interests like the Wall Street Journal are amplifying attacks made by the establishment GOP against conservatives. Lobbyists are up in arms.
Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are showing the leadership skills others have claimed for themselves and conservatives now see just how badly they’ve been played by their so called leaders and many outside groups that have hung for too long on the conservative label while really being affiliates of the Republican Party itself. Because of Lee and Cruz, polling against Obamacare is up and the GOP’s favorability is up.

As I tweeted earlier today:
