Not long after Reid shut Ted Cruz off, the senate voted for cloture. They will now bring the bill forward, and there will be another fight about amendments – or the lack thereof.
But to what end? The same pack of slugs (McConnell, Cornyn, etc) will display an utter lack of courage, and give in to Reid once more.
Eventually, it goes back to the house. There at least most listen to the people. There may be a glimmer of hope.
But not if the Republican ruling class (elites) can help it. They want Big Government, too. Red State makes the case here.
How to fix it?
