Corker is another RINO who needs to go.

 :amen: although there is at least one poster here who seems to prefer the likes of Corker over Ted Cruz! Why I cannot fathom!

This place has turned certifiable.

My goodness, totally unbelievable. He finally added something that wasn't insulting and was both quite rational and well thought out.

I didn't think he had it in him.

Why did  I know you'd be the first to jump offside on this post, thus proving my point?

Listen to this and tell me exactly what Senator Cruz says that you think isn't true!

You love it, too.  Your Cruz hysteria makes me all misty-eyed and nostalgic for how you tore your hair out on FR over Ann Coulter, back in the day.

The only person making any sense is Cruz (listened to this interview Bigun)

Sadly, the GOP Strategy is:

1) Implement obamacare.
2) Sit back and watch while it destroys the economy and health care.
3)Hope to win an election.

And now you hate Coulter too, right?

Sadly we are stuck with Corker and McCain until 2016.

This whole "defunding of Obamacare" is a misnomer. 

90% of Obamacare is mandatory spending, which continues regardless of any budgets passed or not passed by Congress.  Defunding would only affect about 10% of Obamacare, if it did pass. 

It's not going to because we don't have 67 votes to overturn a budget veto from Obama, even if the Senate passed the current CR.

If the house and senate send the pres a bill that would fund the government except for Obamacare and the pres vetoes it who will have shut down the government?

And BTW: In reality there is no such thing as MANDATORY spending.

The President has no line item veto or it's opposite.  The House does have control over what is in the budget.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
