    Would he be grandstanding if he was a senator we liked and oppossing something we didn't?

    and all the while the sequester continues to take its toll.

    here's a idea: why not get rid of that?

    Why? Do you not think there is $100B of waste in a $3.6T budget?

    I couldn't disagree with you more.

    The very premise of Obamacare is an affront to individual liberty and the basic freedom that this Republic was founded to preserve. People need to take a stand against this kind of thing and I commend Sen. Cruz for doing just that.

    sure there might be waste, but is arbitrarily cutting funding for governments programs like blind executioner any way to solve the problem?

    Do you think the sequester actually cuts waste?

    Each department can ask for freedom in implementing the cuts...

    It depends on how agency heads implement the cuts...

    Except very little discretion was given to the various agencies. That's why we had an Air Traffic Control slowdown. The FAA literally had unused research funds sitting in an account they were legally barred from using to shore up the ATC budget.
