Redstate whines: Obamacare won’t die unless we kill it
A bit of lunacy from the leader of the RS Asylum:
Ted Cruz managed to get 45 Republicans in the Senate to unite to defund Obamacare. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin refused to go to the Senate floor to even take a position, only to show up a couple hours laters to vote on the procedural vote. It is a strong signal that the Democrats in states who both Barack Obama and John Kerry lost could be in a very tough position on this fight.
We have the votes, but not the will, to fight this fight, filibuster the continuing resolution, and shut down the government unless the Democrats, at the least, delay implementation of Obamacare. If it gets back to the House, House conservatives must unite to kill the rule with it.
When Teddy “Mr. One-Term” Cruz is your great hope, you’re in trouble. Of course, said great hope is also making the rounds ranting about how we either kill the ACA or he’ll try and force a Government Shutdown on Monday. And Tuesday. And as long as saying so gets him 5 more minutes of airtime, I guess?
I swear, it’s like watching a bunch of 8 year olds play pretend Senator out on the playground.
