Sen. Ted Cruz ends 21-hour speech, then votes with Dems

Heroic marathon man or epic time waster?

After more than 21 hours, Senator Ted Cruz finally stopped talking. Granted he hadn't slept or showered or anything else, but it was at times confusing, at times amusing, and always controversial.

Surprise! Obamacare foe Cruz votes with Democrats on spending plan

    Such silly posturing. A useless debate. Obamacare was pre-ordained. If McCain had won in 2008, we would have had 'McCain Care'. This is the culmination of forty years of union busting by American business, the come-to-fruition of Reagon's and Bush, Sr.'s 'New World Order', One World Economy'. Wall Street threw Main Street under the bus. They moved the factories off shore to Mexico, China, Vietnam, and Malaysia. This allowed them to lay off the union workers. Pensions have all but disappeared by and large as a corporate benefit. Corporate America then decided that they no longer wanted to offer the very expensive benefit of health insurance for their employees, but knew employees would squeal like stuck pigs if they did this. So how did they accomplish this? They've gone to temporary, part-time workers.

    They've let the taxpayer pick up the tab by having Washington implement the Affordable Care Act!!!

    Obamacare was a done deal!!! We reap the seeds we've sewn!
