Sen. Cruz explains why the left is so afraid of a “mobilized” American people

“Why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear,” Sen. Cruz asked. “It’s because the American people are mobilized, are passionate and energized, and, even worse, understand that Obamacare is hurting millions of Americans. That has the left terrified out of their minds.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) joined Glenn on this morning’s radio program to talk about the rollout of Obamacare and the current stalemate over the raising of the debt ceiling.

Sen. Cruz and the Tea Party have been called every name in the book over the last couple of weeks. From anarchists to jihadists the left has come out in full force to demean those standing up for smaller government and the principles of the Constitution.


Glenn and Pat were quick to point out that establishment Republicans have been just as big a roadblock as Democrats when it came to the halting/implementation of Obamacare. While Sen. Cruz did not call out any of his colleagues, he did reiterate that the future of Obamacare depends on the American people.

“The answer has always been that the only hope of stopping Obamacare lies with the American people. The only reason we’re here now is because millions of Americans went to and signed a national petition, called their representatives, spoke out. And that’s why the House of Representatives acted,” Sen. Cruz explained. “The House listened to the people because when millions of constituents melted down the phone lines, signed the natal petition at The House had nothing to do but listen to it… This is Harry Reid’s shutdown. This is Barack Obama’s shutdown. And they need to stop being obstructionists… Harry Reid and Barack Obama believe the shutdown helps them politically. So, they want the shutdown.”
