Senate GOPers revolt
Harry Reid could have couched this better (or possibly The Hill truncated his statement). He should have made the point the impending government shutdown being engineered by the Crackpot Caucus in John Boehner's House of Dysfunction is on them even as they desperately try to spin their harebrained plots to pin the blame on Obama. However, it's probably a good sign that Senate Republicans mutinied, leaping off the crackpots' ship of fools in droves.
Reid thanked Senate Republicans and Democrats for voting to end debate on the bill today. Twenty-five Republicans joined every Senate Democrat in voting to end debate, even though Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warned that vote would let Democrats strip language from the bill to defund ObamaCare.Someone should explain the difference between propaganda to fool the rubes and the actual facts to Cruz. Those facts being legitimate polling shows a majority of Americans don't want them to defund or destroy Obamacare. Of course Cruz is actually smart enough to know that. Everybody inside the beltway knows the only reason he's putting on this clown act is it will help him with the deluded base in the 2016 primaries.
