birdmanesq: mediablitz: Blues_X: James!: So he's filibustering (ish) the republican bill?

Yes. So that he can defund the affordable healthcare act. Which he cannot do by filibustering this bill.

Can't WAIT until that little piece becomes more known in Tea Bagger world. The temper tantrums are going to be AWESOME.

Why would you think that the fact impaired would let, you know, reality stand in the way of their heroic-stand narrative?

I'm sure I've got some moron on my facebook feed right now yammering about how much braver Ted Cruz is than Wendy Davis.

So Ted Cruz is talking all night so he can FAKE-filibuster the vote on HIS OWN PARTY'S BILL?

It was crazy enough when they were threatening to for-real-filibuster the vote on their own bill. But PRETENDING to filibuster their own bill is out-Colbert'ing Colbert.

noheadphones: Ha!  I'm claiming that prices for pharmies will skyrocket because of requirements to pay into the ACA, not as a result of competition (which drives prices down actually).  Similar to the California Energy Crisis--partly to do with overwhelming demand for limited energy, driving up prices.   Obamacare is not a monopoly either--it's a statute, which has, to a degree, consolidated healthcare coverage under the umbrella of the federal government.

I moderately enjoy Cruz's comebacks after the Dem questions he got. I wish we had the parliament for debates.


Cruz is VERY skilled at oral argument. He was Solicitor General in Texas, he's argued successfully in front of the Supreme Court, he was THE SCOTUS partner at my firm...

kasmel: noheadphones: Certainly didn't make electricity cheaper for Californians did it?  And the fact Californians had no other energy option contributed to California Edison's meltdown.

Actually it did. The retail prices were capped. There were blackouts and all manner of inconvenience for sure, but the electricity actually was cheaper to the population.

That's not true in the slightest.

"The financial crisis was possible because of partial deregulation legislation instituted in 1996 by the California Legislature (AB 1890) and Governor. took advantage of this deregulation and was involved in economic withholding and inflated price bidding in California's spot markets."

That wasn't due to a public monopoly. It was due to deregulation to 'promote competition'. Oh, and fraud.
