    Ted Cruz is doing the same old tired song and dance that nearly every conservative has done for the last umpteen number of years. He's trying to portray himself as an outsider. He's the anti-establishment guy. He's a rebel and a maverick and he's here to shake up the status quo.
    That's B.S.. It's no more true of him than it has been for the last for thousand guys to preach it. The GOP try to portray themselves as the outsiders but in reality they are the establishment. They've held more positions of authority in all the branches in the past 30+ years than the democrats. This is where we are now. They cannot claim to not have had a hand in getting us here when they've been the ones driving the car the longest. Ted Cruz is more of exactly the same.

    Would think about politics making "strange bedfellows" but I want to be able to keep my breakfast down and republicants have problems with "bedfellows" if you get my drift.

    So the republicans first claimed Obama care was bad for the American people and now they complain that Americans can't get on the site ? Unbelievable !

    They're upset because regardless of whether or not you can get on the site you still are subject to the individual mandate fines. Are you not paying attention to the talking points, or are you just regurgitating misplaced anger?

    all obamacare is, is just like the law we have to have auto insurance to drive a car, but they want us to have health insurance to seek medical help.
    insurance companies are saying they are losing money, they need for us to buy health insurance.
    all I know is this, if the people of this once great country don't stop electing communist leaders, they will soon be raising their hands to ask for permission to piss.

    @cdman No anger here. I voted for Obama and he won. Trust me i'm all smiles. But since you want to talk about anger then you need to look at the hostage taking TEApublicans and you'll find a whole lot of anger and hatred there. I wonder how's that " defunding obamacare" thing is working out for them..Not to good from what i hear..Anyway, I remember the RNC's website having issues in 2009 with glitches and bugs .It crashed within hours of the launch. No one was able to log on. The media director said said the site was " struggling from attracting an enormous amount of traffic.”...Soooo it was fine for them to have their site crash and then open back up, but yet they want to point fingers at Obama when the health care site has problems? Give me a break with that garbage.

    @MrMrk0804 3 weeks and still an issue. If this was a publicly traded company do you realize how many people would be fired? And your not mandated and fined for not buying a company's product.

    @MrMrk0804 1st of all: I haven't seen you post on here before, so if you're new welcome to politix.:)

    2nd: the tea party is a libertarian/conservative movement from people who are annoyed with how the republicans do not seem to have a spine or are too liberal(john mccain).

    3rd: How can you compare the RNC website, not a governmental requirement to navigate through, to the ACA website, which the government basically requires you to navigate through, when there are examples of other websites, such as amazon.com , that can handle 20 million + unique visitors daily.

    4th: The estimates for people that have actually completed enrollment in obamacare is 100k to 200k. At that rate, we'll only have 1 or 2 million people signed up for obamacare by the time the penalties begin.(info from the news tonight)

    Even Jay Leno is busting the government's chops for failing here. Is it really "garbage"?

    Ted Cruz is like a super hero for America. He is going to be a great president. I really don't give a second thought to ObamaCare, it is the biggest flop in American history. The scam artist Obama and his minions have egg on their faces and crap up their nose . Love it!

    I don't really understand how this is relevant. Do people feel any differently about Bobby Kennedy if/when they find out that Senator Joe McCarthy appointed him to an important job in the US Government and that Bobby Kennedy "retained a fondness" all his life for Senator Joe McCarthy?

    I'm a moderate conservative and I do not like Cruz. He's slippery and unreliable. He's a threat to democrats and republicans. You never know what he's going to pull.

    Thats what scares dems & repubs so much & thats what i find so appealing, he will take on dems or repubs.

    @Mia do you mean he is willing to "take on dems or repubs" or he is willing to screw anyone over for self promotion?

    @Mia

    Don't fall for the act. Think deeper than that. What you see on the surface is the facade that good lawyers and slimy politicians rely on to catch the attention of not-so-intelligent juries and voters.

    They are all dung buckets and ALL elected officials need to be relieved of campaign funds as well as PAC and any other money they people do not officially pay them for doing the dodgam job.... which really need to be obsoleted by electronic town squares and an actual government run by the people.

    If anyone in Amerika needs to be spied on, it's all in government and the people need to see and hear everything our servants are up to, not the other way around.

    This non-stop crap makes me sick and I have nothing but contempt for the corporate dems and repubs alike.

    Screw all this garbage.

    You are so right. Politicians of every flavor are in the business to heighten their own status and personal agenda. They do nothing for "the People" except grandstand and show off and catch the attention of Americans too dumb to demand that civil servants behave and get paid like civil servants.

    @PayThatCEO That's the key. The "Public Service" thing. They pat each other on the back like they are really working.

    There's a reason why there's so many millionaires there.

    All of America having their own individual healthcare plan and not expecting the taxpayer to pick up their emergency room costs for the common cold through Medicare is bad how? The Republicans have yet to explain what their plan is, other than making sure the insurance barons that own them don't have to cover folks with preexisting medical conditions.
  • #52

    You're absolutely right. Republicans haven't explained a plan because they don't have a plan and never will.

    History shows that Republicans have shot down every healthcare reform idea in years past and if they get their hooks into delaying Obamacare, they will shoot it down, as well.

    There are two types of conservatives who don't want ACA. The rich (including politicians) who have the best healthcare money can buy and they don't care about anyone else. AND those who shoplift their medical care off of everyone else and hate the idea of being responsible (which used to be a conservative mantra) and pay their own way.

    @PayThatCEO Actually you are wrong- since detailed point by point plans have been out for a long time. Just use that internet machine and look for a site called 'Google'.... and search 'republican healthcare plan'.

    There was no alternate plan in 1994 either. So? There are 3 kinds of liberals who want the ACA. 1) The kind who have no problem spending other people's money to guarantee votes, and when it fails and is awful, JUST tax a little more. 2) Those who look and swoon at the euro countries,(liberals love doing that) and wonder why we cant have high taxes and inferior heatlhcare. 3) Those who want Control.

    @PayThatCEO They haven't explained their plan because the ACA was their plan (McCain ran on it for Pete's sake) and now that it was implemented by Democrats it's 'socialist'.

    What they are saying about the ACA would be like if Democrats tried to repeal a single payer plan because it was passed by a GOP majority.

    Compared to others in Congress this is child's play! Politics is a dirty business! If you can't dig up something dirty on someone...you make it up! The person who over heard this conversation showed no class ......this was a private conversation...they should have been brought up on charges for privacy invasion. If we spent more time on solving our problems rather than digging up dirt we all be better off! I have said this before..."We need more people with his moxi to stand up and fight the stagnant policies of this present administration!

    The more I learn about Cruz the better I like him. I disagree with his position on Obamacare because I think it is the wrong strategy. There is no question that Obamacare is a brewing disaster of unbelievable proportions. The sooner that it is exposed to the people the sooner it will collapse. The recent debacle of a $300M non working website which is probably 100 times as expensive as need be is a great example. People can still sign up using paper and pen. Do nothing but force implementation. Obamacare will implode.

    He talks a wonderful talk but his legacy of action for the American PEOPLE falls by the wayside. Talk is cheap and that is what he and is apparent mentor are very good at.

    Ha! so Boehner was busted breaking the rules and he hires Rafael Cruz to defend him because they invaded his privacy to expose his crooked ways. Rafael is a dirtbag lawyer and he defended his dirtbag client, just like today while he does the bidding of the dirtbag billionaires and the dirtbag insurance companies.

    I refuse to vote for a politician. Americans need to demand that the political system stop being corrupted by career politicians who are out for their own personal gain.
