The ignorance of Ted Cruz and his plan to shut down the Government
The ignorance of Ted Cruz and his plan to shut down the Government

Ted Cruz is the Texas Senator who always looks to me like he is desperate. He just seems to always be crying “NOTICE ME, PLEASE NOTICE ME”  in a never ending quest to gain attention from what I assume is a non informed base of the far right end of the GOP. Ted Cruz has started a Twitter campaign to defund Obamacare through Government shutdown. Ted Cruz is an ignoramus!

His plan is to let the end of the fiscal year pass on September 30 and then allow the Governent to shut down in hopes of defunding Obamacare. Cruz when told how destructive a Government shutdown would be to the United States has said that if the Government shuts down then at least Obamacare will be defunded. He is wrong.

FIRST OFF I WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS TOOK A TOTAL OF LESS THAN AN HOUR OF RESEARCH TO FIND OUT..

Long story made short though here is the only two things you need to know…

1. A government shutdown will in affect cut discretionary spending.

2. Obamacare is funded through Mandatory spending.

This just shows once again what the Lyndsey Grahams, John McCain and other Long time Republican leaders have been saying about guys like Ted Cruz. They find time to be outraged about everything and they love to make attention grabbing threats but their ignorance about how things work make them dangerous.

In closing Good Luck Ted Cruz. Good Luck explaining to people who wont be receiving their checks from Military, Health and Human Services (including Social Security funds to support Medicare), Education, Housing and Urban Development, and the Justice Department about the reason you let the Government shut down.
