Ted Cruz's Epic Filibuster Against ObamaCare Ends

Ted Cruz's Obamacare ended his extended  oratory after twenty-one hours.  Shortly thereafter John McCain ripped into him insisting that the people had spoken and we shouldn't try to be closing down the government.

Perhaps McCain didn't read the legislation sent by the House which seeks to defund Obamacare while at the same time keeps open the government and allows it to continue running.

I for one am proud of my Senator from Texas because he has demonstrated that he has the cajones to stand up to the entrenched bureaucracy of elitists on both sides of the aisle. Cruz refused to be bullied by Harry Reid, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, or Lindsey Graham.  

I stand with CRUZ.  He's absolutely correct when he states that Congress needs to do a better job at listening to the people of America.

Make DC Listen

Ted Cruz, Republican from Texas, began his filibuster at 2.40pm  ET today.  Cruz has vowed to speak as long as possible to stop the “cloture” vote in hopes of putting the brakes on Obamacare.

While Cruz acknowledges that his efforts will do little to block Obamacare funding, he makes clear that he is echoing the voices of his constituents that have been pleading to "make DC listen".

Cruz dressed down his fellow Senators by letting them know that  the American people are frustrated because their elected officials do not listen.

"Most Americans could not give a flying flip about a bunch of politicians in Washington.  Almost all of us are in cheap suits with bad chair cuts."

Polls tend to show that a pluality of voters disapprove of Obamacare and do NOT trust the government to run their healthcare because it was sold to us on fairy dust and lies.  Many Americans understand Obamacare is too intrusive on our privacy and they do NOT wish to have the government deciding their family's healthcare.  Many Americans have already had their insurance rates raised and seen the quality of the medical care reduced.

There are many polls that show that Americans don't trust the government to run their healthcare; Because it was sold to us on lies; Because it's too intrusive on our privacy; Because its not even implemented yet, and it has already raised insurance rates and reduced the quality of my medical care; Because Americans don't want the government deciding my family's healthcare; Because it is a threat to jobs and our economy

Ted Cruz can't hold the floor for more than 15 hours according to Senate rules

Democrats, who control the Senate, said they plan to move ahead with a bill that would fund the health care program--and the rest of the federal government--through December 15th.  If the GOP-controlled House which voted to cut Obamacare funding balks, the federal government will shut down October 1st.
