    This is the tea party trying to hijack the republican party. They think that the American people are only tea party people. This guy is very dangerous. He and the tea party do not care if they shut down the government. The tea party is pathetic. They do not care about anybody but themselves.

    If the Democrats are this worried about defunding Obamacare then it is probably a GOOD thing. Everytime they start whinning about the end of the world and how civilization is doomed because government is shrinking or has less money it ends up better for everybody but them.

    The latest news is that the Republican leadership has enough votes to join the Democrats and pass a budget bill with the kill-ACA bits deleted. And this includes enough votes to prevent a modern filibuster in the Senate (although we’re getting a short version of an old-fashioned, now obsolete, Jimmy Stewart-Mr Smith type filibuster which will be ended with a cloture vote in the very near future, a cloture vote strongly supported by the Republican leadership, followed by a House vote, supported by the Republican leadership who are whipping up the votes to accept the Senate version).

    @Debt Free Someone has to take the wheel from the RINOs. They are driving it off a ledge a few feet down to keep from driving in the democrat circle.

    .
    So, you’re saying the same thing as the cartoonist? Because the Tea Party is at the wheel and driving the GOP off a cliff. Which is just fine with me.

    The guy is ugly on a visual and oral level. Oily, grand gestures, dead eyes, platitudes,, to much pathos in his voice, behavior of a snake-oil salesmen. One does not even have to be annoyed at his political positions to not like him. How elected this clown? How did he ever pass a primary? Poor GOP, now you have to live with him…

    If the government shuts down:
    Troops don’t get paid, Social Security checks don’t go out, parks close, Medicare and Medicaid will close, government offices giving out passports close.
    The interest rates on money the government owes may go up, adding to the debt, but, hey, if it keeps 30 million Americans from getting health care it is worth it, right righties?
    (actually it won’t work)

    @Rockngolfer

    Do your research. Social Security checks still go out, troops still get paid, Obamacare still moves forward, Medicare / Medicaid doesn’t close. You are correct about passports being delayed. Also national parks probably close. Also, all government employees get a paid vacation. Government shut-downs are symbolic… and would be a thing of the past if congress would simply pass a budget which they haven’t done in the last 6 years.

    The irony is that Cruz thinks this stunt will help him become President. HAHAHAHAHA!

    A strange opinion. Fortunately, most Americans do not see it that way. See any poll.

    I’m taking you on as a project. I will attempt to call you out each time you say something stupid, hateful or boring. You get 3 for 3 today. Consider yourself “called out”.

    Au contraire you dimwitted democrat Luckovich, Cruz stands for more of the American public than you think. The republican establishment is out of touch with the public as is the demoncrat establishment. You sir are a demonstrated idiot.
