Ted Cruz speech on floor of Senate today
◼ Ted Cruz was on the floor of the Senate today making the case about defunding Obamacare and keeping the government open. - Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion
...The Senate rules are byzantine, resulting in the need for counter-intuitive maneuvering. Coupled with the lack of will in the Senate Republicans, those rules likely doom Cruz to failure this time. But it’s a failure of the will at many levels.
The reason Cruz is called foolish is that Democrats are willing to play a game of chicken over shutting down the government, and Republicans are not. That is the complete opposite of the media narrative willingly adopted by Cruz’s Republican opponents.
