Senator Ted Cruz should be writing not talking. He should be writing a bill that will pass the House, Senate and President. He should be using this critical time to write a bill that will pass. Making sure the government does not shut down. Doing what is best for all people. But instead, he is doing what is best for himself and some people.
Instead he is going something that people truly hate about Washington; just talking. Well maybe I shouldn’t be pontificating like that. I don’t have any true stats or data to back that up. I should just speak for myself. I hate when politicians talk. Would be nice to see a politician who is about action. Writing bills. Passing bills. Actually doing what you were sent to the Senate to do.
If Senator Cruz took this time to write a bill, it would be better spent. While he is there talking; he could use the time wisely and actually write a valid and passable bill. The Democrats in the Senate are not fully happy with Obamacare. There are parts that could be stopped or postponed. Senator Cruz could have spent time talking about that. Having a dialogue. Talk to the Senators about what give and take could happen. Get rid of this. Change this. Massage that. But his hard line stance has ensured that few people on either side of the aisle are willing to listen. So instead he is spouting non-sense.
Instead he is acting poorly and Twisting Star Wars quotes:
Or instead he is doing some bad public speaking by Reading Green Eggs and Ham:
I am not a Texas voter. I didn’t send Senator Cruz there. But I can guarantee I will not vote for him for national office. He doesn’t know how to compromise. He doesn’t know how to work with people. It is his way or the highway. He is pissing everyone off. It is nice that he is standing up for something. But there is no ideology that is universal. Not even “universal health care”. So everyone has to work with someone. Even when there is a position of power, groups still have to figure out how to work together to get to the goal. Teachers work with students or they don’t graduate. Bosses work with employees to make sure that the products get turned out. And Republicans work with Democrats to get laws passed Or else, nothing gets done. Bottom line: He doesn’t know how to do the job.
Senator Cruz talks about “The People” as if there is a monolithic block that is unwavering. That 100% of Americans have said they are against Obamacare. Sorry Senator Cruz, that is just a lie. So what Senator Cruz should be looking at is COMPROMISE. 100% of Americans do know that is needed. He would strengthen his argument if you knew how many people. A percentage. But Senator Cruz probably feel emboldened by saying “The People”. When realistically, it is just a weak claim.
If he had actually written a bill, he could have spent the time actually reading it. Instead his righteous stand has a bunch of foolishness that includes the clips I put above. For now, Senator Cruz is just doing what he does best=bloviating. He has done only one thing by talking; he is ensuring that Obamacare passes. Good job on passing Obamacare by not doing your ACTUAL job.
