Somewhere in the night, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Barry Manilow’s name was taken in vain not once. But twice.
GOP Sen. Mike Lee, providing a little back-up relief to Sen. Ted Cruz, ran with an extended analogy about the government forcing consumers to spend too much on unnecessary things, including cowboy poetry (heh) and yes, 1970s albums.

Why? Because on a serious note, America’s listening and tuned in to Cruz and company’s stand against the destructive regime of Obamacare, even in the deaf elites in Washington are not.
