Just a Few Quotes from Sen.Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his filibuster along with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) Both Men Very Impressive

Cruz made the great point that the Republicans have voted to keep the Government going, just defund Obamacare. That it is Harry Reid and the President that appear to be opting to shut down the government, and Cruz encourages that they not do so, “We do not want to shut down the government”.

CRUZ: Obama doesn't respect 1st, 2nd, 4th or 5th Amends...or the rest of Constitution

If we want to mitigate all the harms that come from Obamacare, we have to stop it now, he argued.

Ted Cruz............Our constituents should know what we believe. If we're standing and fighting, our beliefs should be self-evident

Ted Cruz.......DC is using a rigged process to keep Obamacare funded.

Ted Cruz..........Why do Americans hold this body in such low regard? Because we pass laws that treat us better than them

Ted Cruz.........The American people are disgusted with business as usual in Washington.Elected officials are not listening to the people. The most fundamental problem in this nation is the problem that Washington has stopped listening to the American people

Ted Cruz..........If you're big, powerful, or politically connected, you can get an Obamacare exemption. Where's the exemption for the people?

Ted Cruz...............Sovereignty resides with We the People

Ted Cruz.............. “I don’t know if it’s the water, something in the air, the cherry blossoms, but people get here and they stop listening to the American people.”

“If the Federal Govt can force Hobby Lobby to break their religious beliefs, what stops them from forcing you to break yours?” ` Ted Cruz.

“If The Senators would listen to the American people, the vote would be 100 to ZERO”......Ted Cruz.

"When you have a jackboot on the back of your neck, it's hard to think about anything else." Sen Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz............" I believe in the American Dream with all my heart and all my might-that's what's being jeopardized by Obamacare"

Ted Cruz...........You know the team each of us is on? It's the American team.

Ted Cruz........There is a reason why members of Congress, who support Obamacare for the American people, want out of it

Ted Cruz................Every Senator should ask him or herself, "what is the right thing to do for your constituents?"

Wild Thing's comment............

There were so many things he said that were so good. I hope they will be online in the next few days.

Isn't it sad that there are very few times you can think back to & say "wow that political official actually fought for me?"

I watched it live on C-Span and put many posts about it at my Facebook page.

God bless Senator’s Cruz and Lee . They truly work well together. I am really impressed with both of these fine men.

It is now almost 5:00 a.m. EST here and Senator Cruz now in the 15th hour, Senator Lee at his side. Two great men.

Ted Cruz is the shot in the arm true conservatives have yearned for since Ronald Reagan left office. In this filibuster he is not just reading a book. He is making points that go to the heart and soul of what traditional America is all about and what made us the world's most powerful and successful nation.
