Cruz Wants Conservatives To Hold GOPers 'Accountable' For Opposing Defunding Effort

In remarks likely to deepen his rift with members of his own party, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he wants conservatives to hold Senate Republicans "accountable" for opposing the ill-fated effort to defund the Affordable Care Act.

Echoing his sentiments from earlier this week, Cruz told National Review's Robert Costa in an interview published Saturday that the defunding campaign was derailed by a "significant number" of his GOP colleagues who "actively, aggressively, and vocally led the effort to defeat House Republicans."

“Once Senate Republicans did that, it crippled the chances of this effort, and it caused the lousy deal.” he told Costa.

Cruz didn't identify any specific senators and, as he said earlier this year, made it clear that he won't be involved in any GOP primaries. But he indicated he wants those lawmakers to pay a price at the ballot box.

Alert: Marco Rubio backs McConnell for 2016 Re-election; Turns back on Tea Party

In his re-election bid, McConnell is fending off a challenge from tea party candidate Matt Bevin, a Louisville businessman, in the Kentucky Republican Senate primary.

Tea party groups were upset with the results of the government shutdown and debt-limit agreements.  McConnell played a significant leadership role to reopen the government and ensure that the U.S. did not default. The Senate Conservative Fund announced Friday it will support Bevin.

No Cavalry Is Coming

Lee Cary

Fiscal conservatives wait in vain for the GOP Cavalry to rescue America from further growth in the federal debt, for there is no Cavalry coming.

An American Thinker (AT) piece, posted on July 5, 2012, entitled "If the GOP Cavalry Doesn't Come," suggested that, in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's ObamaCare decision, conservatives awaited the arrival of the GOP Cavalry after a Republican victory in November 2012.

The hoped-for Cavalry could, the article suggested, be a "troop of newly elected Republican congressional legislators who will ride into D.C. hell-bent-to-leather, determined to turn back the progressives who control the Democratic Party and the national agenda."

Then the July article asked, "What if that cavalry doesn't come? Or what if it arrives poorly armed, on lame horses, with dull leadership?"

10 Lessons #MakeDCListen Taught Us

By Steve Deace

The ruling class is losing its cotton-picking minds, because it’s getting a long-overdue comeuppance from their employers they thought all along were really their subjects.

Whether it’s because of our nixing of their plans for another pointless Middle Eastern war, or our insistence they not foist Obamacare’s epic fail upon us while exempting themselves from it, the resulting ruling class conniption fits are coming fast and furious.

When even a few stand on principle it reveals the character of everyone else around them. And if the Obamacare filibuster begun by Ted Cruz and capably aided and abetted by Mike Lee (with others chipping in) ends up accomplishing nothing else, it has provided a searing spotlight on the character (or lack thereof) of their contemporaries and the system they’re fighting.

Here are 10 things that searing spotlight has revealed:

First foreign-owned toll road in Texas downgraded to junk bond status

Hate to say it, but we told you so.

Texas’ first foreign-owned toll road financed through a controversial public private partnership just got downgraded to junk bond status by Moody’s Investors Service. The Spain-based firm, Cintra (65% ownership), and San Antonio-based Zachry (35% ownership), known as SH 130 Concession Company opened the southern leg of State Highway 130 last November.

Concerned citizens with Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF) immediately launched a boycott of SH 130. Since then, the anemically low traffic levels signaled trouble from the beginning and Moody’s downgraded the concession company’s rating in April warning of the risk of default. The downgrade this week warns of default unless the company can restructure its debt or attract a substantial increase in traffic.

Moody’s predicts Cintra will be unable to meet its June 2014 debt service payment: “Thus, absent a sponsor injection of equity, a debt restructuring, or some other method of generating significantly more revenues, there is a high likelihood of a payment default in June 2014.”

Empower Texans Releases Their Fiscal Responsibility Index Rating Texas State Legislators

Empower Texans Must See Fiscal Responsibility Index RatingThe Fiscal Responsibility Index is a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues. Texans for Fiscal Responsibility uses exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators’ governing philosophy.

TEA Party 911 Editor's Note: This is an excellent tool to gauge how your State Representative or Senator rated on fiscal issues. An example is District 10 Representative Jim Pitts who rated an abysmal 29.7 out of a possible 100. If I was in District 10, I would be diligently seeking a replacement for Pitts.

See how your Representative or Senator rated at Empower Texans: http://www.empowertexans.com/index/
