U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today spoke on the Senate floor harkening back to Cicero’s famous warning to the citizens of Rome. Over 2,000 years later, the words are powerfully relevant to our current President’s lawlessness. When, President Obama, do you mean to cease abusing our patience? How long is that madness of yours still to mock us? When is there to be an end of that unbridled audacity of yours, swaggering about as it does now,” Sen. Cruz asked.

“[The executive order] is such an offense to the Constitution, and by the way, Sean, it is so offensive to the African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans who have an enormously high unemployment rate. This president has come in and said, ‘you know what, for political gain, I am going to give 5 million people the authority to work here, even though that’s illegal, I’m going to do it.’ And that’s going to leave 5 million people out in the cold.”
South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy says Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber should be encouraged to keep talking because he’ll continue to reveal the truly deceptive way that Obama and his cronies pushed through a federal takeover of our health care system.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA) appeared on Fox News & Fox Business to discuss Obama’s plan to “legalize” more than 5 million illegal aliens. Obama will be announcing his plan this evening. Forbes and Cruz are both GING-PAC endorsed lawmakers who believe in the rule of law and the Constitution.
To be clear, the dispute over executive amnesty is not between President Obama and Republicans in Congress; it is a dispute between President Obama and the American People. The Democrats suffered historic losses in the midterm elections largely over the prospect of the President’s executive amnesty.
During the past few years, Obama has repeatedly – and accurately – declared that he’s not a king or an emperor and can’t unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegals. Now, he’s reversing himself and claiming he can’t wait for Congress to act, so he must act alone.
The audacity of this President to think he can completely destroy the Rule of Law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me. It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people. Our Republic will not stand if we tolerate a President who is set upon the complete destruction of the Rule of Law.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) sent a letter today to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on the issue of net neutrality. In the letter, Chairman Goodlatte challenges the notion that regulating the Internet is the most effective way to achieve net neutrality and protect consumers from discriminatory conduct.
Gruber has openly admitted that Obamacare was written in confusing language designed to fool what he calls “stupid” Americans. He also admits that if the Obama Administration told the truth about what Obamacare would do, it wouldn’t have passed at all. In other words, because Americans are so stupid, they don’t know what’s best for them – so elitists like Jonathan Gruber and Barack Obama must lie to them and impose their will on all of us.
The counting of absentee ballots is over in Alaska and Dan Sullivan has defeated incumbent liberal Sen. Mark Begich to be the next U.S. Senator from that state. Begich was a lock-step liberal who supported Obama’s radical agenda. Sullivan had an 8,000 vote lead in last week’s election, but more than 40,000 absentee votes had not yet been counted.
