He has no solutions, just lots of talk and bedtime stories from Dr. Seaus.
Pulling the birther punch would not have come out of the bag except this junior Senator needs someone to shake some sense into the GOP because we actually need a two party system. The again, George Washington didn’t like parties at all. Who needs them?

Part of the answer to this is to generate more revenue. If the economy can be ignited to renew America around a sustainable living theme, the pie would increase and that would fund our obligations. Where is the capitalist genius that will invent and innovate our way out of this predicament. It isn’t from an academic from Canada who hasn’t accomplished a thing in his life.
“This whole Congress has been on ‘Cruz control’ for the last few weeks,” Rep. Pat Meehan (R-Pa.) lamented Tuesday.
Meehan, one of a handful of House Republicans who backs moving a “clean” funding bill with no ObamaCare language, said Cruz hijacked the debate leading up to the shutdown, first by demanding a defunding of the Affordable Care Act and then with his 21-hour floor speech on the topic, which churned countless headlines and cable news clips.
But he bristled at the idea that House Republicans were taking their cues from Cruz, even as the House prepared to advance the small, targeted spending bills that Cruz had championed.
“Most of our conference is not waking up in the morning and reading what Ted Cruz is saying. Ted Cruz is doing his thing, but I think we look at it completely differently,” Meehan said.”
