    that hardly seems fair. We all have to pay premiums, but don't get medical insurance?

    Back on topic- it appears fearless Ted stood for his principles until it was time to vote and then he went with the pack and voted FOR the bill. Sen McCain took Cruz to task over the Nazi comparison.

    The CON nuts are falling from the trees.

    Oh, you mean pulled it out of context siding with his pals Reid and Schumer to attack? Yes he did.

    His constituency will still remember the filibuster more clearly than the vote. His goal of gaining support from the right wingers was reached without his supporting a government shut down. It was a political win - win.

    ORRRRR the radical right sees him as a cut and run wimp. One senator voting NO would not have shut the government down, and the TP CON game claims it isn't to 'shut the government down' but instead to 'defund that bad ol' Obamacare'

    I seriously doubt any of his opponents in the next primary will let the vote be forgotten. He could have been the lone beacon of CON principles, instead he is just another posturing pimpin' politician.

    It appears the TPs in the House are mad at Cruz for not seeing this through, the House is the cesspool of dysfunctional Right Wing politics, if they don't forget you can bet the koolaid drinking won't either.

    Senator Cruz runs the risk of being seen, as they say in Texas- All hat and no cattle...

    Oh forgot to ask- do you think he will run in 2016?

    I have backed up my claims by posting actual data from bea.gov, bls.gov, and the U.S. Treasury. Since obviously those sites aren't credible for you tell me the sites that are? Maybe it is data that you are having a problem understanding? I can beat you up all day with data the refutes your "feelings." Now tell us all credible sites in your world since bea.gov, bls.gov, and the Treasury aren't. Seems they were credible during the Clinton years, but not so now. Wonder why?

    If he thinks there is a chance, he'll run in 2016. Whether he will get the nomination, of course, depends on a lot of things that are outside of his control.

    They said Bush was "all hat and no cattle", yet he won not only the nomination, but the election, twice.

    and, according to his spinmeisters, he won't have voted to keep Obamacare, but to save the country from a government shutdown.

    as for being a "posturing pimpin' politician", is there another kind?

    That's funny, following the Constitution is now "extreme right". It used to not be right or left, it was just a given that we follow the Constitution. Now, it's "extreme" behavior.

    How about it, green, name for me the sites you find credible since bea.gov, bls.gov, and the Treasury don't qualify in your world. Still waiting and bet I have a much longer wait. I really do know why you are beating your head against the wall because you simply cannot believe that those liberals you support would be lying to you. Most people who think only with their heart love the rhetoric while ignoring the results. You seem to believe rhetoric trumps results so I won't be holding my breath waiting for a response from you giving me credible sites.
