Breitbart Exclusive: McConnell, Cornyn Whipping Votes Against Ted Cruz

A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare.

"Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes,” a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News. “Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.”

McConnell and Cornyn stated earlier Monday that they oppose a possible filibuster from Cruz to keep Reid from adding language funding the Affordable Care Act to the continuing resolution passed by the House of Representatives.

Yes, you have me all figured out.

If you bother to research my past comments, you would know that I have no love for Rand, and I have been attacked for it. I think you miss my point all together, and that's a shame.

Yah and meybe I should do an internet search on wiki for you

U must be kidding. I respond to this coment. Search your coments yourself I didnt and wont.


Well, Rand could just say all the right things to libertarians

and make you happy - but then - I think we have seen that game played already and it didnt end well.

Clearly you know nothing of politics.

Rand is playing a wonderful game- he knows many of these fights are losers - but he is positioning. And doing a bang up job of it.

I dont want Rand or anyone to make me happy.

My happiniss is my decission and no one elses.

Rand Paul betrayed me and showed me a lack of morality. I can not trust him to represent me.

You can make it into a emotional happiness poo poo if you like. I still say he loves IzUnReal and needs to go there and be a politition he will fit right in.

You deflect and ignore the facts. He endorsed the NWO, Rothschild Zionist funded puppet Mit Romney against my support of Ron Paul and my strong belief in individual sovereignty. In spite of the fact that the Gov is infested with the zio izunreal controllers and zio roth central bankers he is a go along and get along on the very most important issues to me. Things like honesty and loyalty. These are not qualities that are in agreement with sneak stratigy to say and do one thing yet deny having done it with excuses.

Anyway you know better and you are acting as moraly bankrupt as Rand by your coment about Rand making me happy. As the country is brought down it becomes less and less of a joke.


Well, then

visualize a different ending. (or stfu)

Such a child

Love people like you tell people to "stfu", it make the rest of us feel more mature. Don't worry buddy, I'm sure someday you'll move out of your mommy's house.

Hey im an old man




You need to grow up.

I'm trying to SHED years

What good is a world-weary realist's prognostication of defeat? Really, what's the point of asserting a position of hopelessness? I'm thrilled Cruz is making noise, and making corrupt power brokers scramble for cameras and hyperbole and continuing resolutions. However pure he may or may not be there is a lot of public support and debate we wouldn't have seen had he remained quiet. The country is so overextended, and people are so sick of Washington, anything can happen.

Also, the vote for Cruz was a vote against David Dewhurst, so whatever he does, short of Armageddon, is a win.

ok downvoters

if I made a point of asserting hopelessness as "realistic" political prediction to my friends, they would tell me to stfu. We're not in a movie, and we're not powerless, and "they" are not invincible.

McConnell and Cornyn are whipping against the ACA fight. You would join them?

That's why mcCONnell and cornyn must go!
