Senator Ted Cruz, (R) Texas 2

You gotta love it. The freshman Senator from the marvelous State of Texas has made a big splash in the normally moldy, boring, and sometimes irrelevant halls of the US Senate. We are used to hearing empty suits like Majority Leader Harry Reid, or the cold oatmeal-like speeches of the Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

What we heard from Cruz was passion. Say, what? Passion in the Senate?

Senator Cruz may be passionate about killing Obama Care, which is praiseworthy in itself. Or, Cruz may be passionate about his ascent in the Republican Party without having paid his dues. That’s OK, too. The old structure needs shaking up, and right now, any shaking can be a good thing.

Everybody knows that Obama Care is not a good thing. Everybody will pay more for healthcare, get less and at lower quality. The people gaining the most will be illegal aliens if Obama gets his way with immigration reform.

Cruz has chosen a holy cause that will not hurt him in any way.

The Obama Care fight has to be fought, now. Whether we win or lose makes little difference in the short run. To save lives, jobs and our standard of living, the system has to be changed. The American public will not forget this battle, nor why it is being fought.

This is all about the future. Ted Cruz is hitching his reputation with the Obama Care fight and that is perfectly acceptable.

The man and the cause make good fellow-travelers, no matter what you think of either.

  1. Cruz isn’t the only Senator with integrity, but he is one of but a very small few. I have a post coming up next week about the other senator who I feel deserves our respect.

  2. I look forward to the article, and will wait to see who it is. I don’t know much about John Cornyn, but he seems like a decent guy. Our two senators from Georgia are in Washington enjoying the perks, although neither needed it. Just a couple of rich guys going to another club. Gotta get rid of those that don’t have some kind of fire in their belly.
