    So tell me, who doesn't know what they're talking about?
    You do realize the filibuster was to prevent ANY piece of Obamacare to be funded in a bill that would be sent to the Senate??

    Few RINO's were down to fund but Cruz called Bull****.... I call that Badass... 19 hours the man went... That's dedication.... If he didn't care he wouldn't have stood there for 19 hours talking.

    Article is here.
    It's early but the polls do not show a "slaughter".

    (AUSTIN) A recent poll conducted by the Texas Lyceum, the statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan premier leadership group, shows Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott ahead of State Senator Wendy Davis by eight percentage points, should she decide to run for governor. Among registered voters, Abbott comes in at 29 percent to 21 percent for Davis. However, at this very early stage “don’t know” comes out way ahead of both with 50 percent of the registered voters polled between September 6 – September 20.
    Among women, Abbott and Davis are in a statistical tie, 25 percent to 23 percent, with Abbott holding a lead over Davis that is within the poll’s 3.47 percent margin of error. Fifty-one percent of women remain undecided on the Abbott-Davis matchup. Looking among African Americans and Hispanic registered voters Davis enjoys a lead with both groups. Among African Americans, Davis carries a 26-point lead - 36 percent to 10 percent - and among Hispanics, Davis leads Abbott 22 percent to 18 percent

    I believe everyone who is not in the tank (brainwashed) and have no stake in the tank (welfare, Obamaphone, food stamps) will be voting non-democrat next fall.

    The main reason why republicans are holding their seats are were democratically elected to their is seats during the last mid term was because they pledged small government and opposition to Obamacare...

    They hold their ground and tell the truth that democrats refuse to accept no government funding that doesn't include Obamacare the Senate will taken by republicans and that means a repeal of Obamacare entirely .... That's why Democrats are opposed to a 1-year delay on the funding with any government funding bill.... They know they're done in a year.
