    Funny, I never saw were he wrote that out.

    Guys like him aren't the ones increasing the taxpayers tab at the ER. He says he pays his bills, unlike those that push for Obamacare which will really increase the taxpayers tab.

    Lets review this. Some people have required ER's to treat people even though they claim they can't pay. Then many of the same people bitch about the bill at the ER that the taxpayers pay. So to solve that, they come up with a solution that

    costs the taxpayer way more than the ER bill.

    Doesn't make any sense, uh? Liberal ideas never do.

    There are kooks on both sides, I associate with those who deal in actual data and facts which leaves the liberals here out. I don't go to the free republic forum so don't know what you are talking about. I will call out right wing kooks just like I do leftwing kooks.

    Eh, he's a self-absorbed, ambitious jerk with delusions of future grandeur... which is what his grandstanding now is all about in the first place.
    What makes him self-absorbed?

    16.5 headed for 21 trillion in the hole, cutting programs is not even going to be the half of it

    They are just projecting. It's what they always do.

    These same people calling Cruz self absorbed for standing on principle are the same people that defend the most narcissistic man ever to hold the office of Presidency. Every MSM left wing narrative isn't about the truth. They are about how the story can be shaped to make Obama look good. Remember Obama isn't seen as governing. He's seen as campaigning. He is seen as the endless symbol of the "people's struggle against unfairness" and "equality" with his right hand as his left hand signs massive legislation like Obamacare. If anyone blasphemes against their Lord and Savior Barack Obama he's not cool and trendy anymore in the Lady Gaga culture reality The Left operates in.

    You want to talk about ego? Think about the ego and total lack of self awareness it took to even craft such a bill like Obamacare. The control it gives to so few. The power it concentrates within the Federal Government. All of our collective HC is going to now basically be controlled by an army of Lois Lerners at the IRS. The ego on the people who are going to control this system, especially after ignorant low info people have given them so power, will literally be unchecked.

    A little truth from John McCain in this clip. He hits the nail on the head. Obamacare is like Hitler, and those who don't stand up to Obamacare are no different than those who appeased Nazis? I don't see Obamacare murdering 6 million Jews. I don't see Obamacare bombing Britain and killing civilians. I don't see Obamacare having people shot because they oppose it. Frankly, Cruz is bat-crap insane to have made a statement like that, and I am glad it was another Republican who ripped his ass apart for it.

    Yes and it also tells us all we need to know about your statement when you can use John Mcain as your example of a politician that got it right. What a joke

    Ted Cruz has more guts than any of these loser Rhinos
