1. The three stooges

The triumvirate of Cruz-Lee-Paul will soon become as well known as Larry-Moe-Curly, but they'll never be as entertaining.

3. Holy excrement

I would never, in my life, have thought you could get that many R's agree to go against the budget Munster.

19. And, I might be tempted to

steal it from you at one point. Only I'm thinking the Budget Muenster.

5. I doubt he'll get the message.

One could hope. Looks like Ryan has lost a huge amount of support even among Republicans. Good. It's about time.

Now if they could just stop trying to repeal the ACA.

14. Once the ACA has been in place for about 10 years,

it will be impossible to repeal outright. People will become used to the benefits and not even conservatives will give them up.

18. The real benefit of the ACA will kick in next year.

When all of them that have been working so hard to appeal it are up for re-election.

Maybe Ryan will be one of the ones that loses his seat. There's just something about him that annoys me.

22. "Now if they could just stop trying to repeal the ACA."

They can't because the base craves the anti-Obama red meat.

17. Cruz again

There must be some kind of contest on to see who can embarrass Texas the worst in the shortest period of time, and Cruz knows that to beat Perry and Gohmert, he has a lot of lost time to make up for.

20. So here is the line in the sand between my two Senators.

Cornyn voted for this and Cruz voted against it. Finally a wingnut bridge too far for John Cornyn.

Maybe they can now get serious.
