Why is Sen. Ted Cruz doing this filibuster anyway? The cloture vote isnâ€™t today, so heâ€™s not delaying that. He is educating the public (and his fellow senators) on the damage Obamacare is doing to the economy, but some of his colleagues donâ€™t seem to get it. Or perhaps they do, and thatâ€™s why theyâ€™re all for ruining the economy.
Sen. Dick Durbin wasnâ€™t moved by the story of Judy, whose loss of income qualified her for Medicaid. And isnâ€™t that what the Democratsâ€™ social safety net is there for? Everybody, into the safety net!Â Itâ€™s awesome!
A better job? Do those still exist?
