Its been inspiring to watch Senator Ted Cruz and REAL patriots talk on the Senate floor all night long.
Pushing into the 20th hour and still going strong, there appears to be clear differences where our state GOP is as compared to the party leadership nationally. About 19 hours ago Reince Priebus Chair of the national GOP tweets:
From our own party leadership? Crickets.
Below the fold are screen shots of the only Michigan political social media efforts on twitter.

Tonight Senator Ted Cruz is my Senator.
He is America's Senator. A Hero.
If you have not had the chance yet, get over to one of the streaming sites and watch a great debate. While technically not a filibuster until it delays the vote for cloture which would happen tomorrow. Cloture would cut off the amendment process and the only amendment made would be the stripping of the defunding mechanism in the continuing resolution to fund the government.
Watch, tweet, email, call, get your friends watching and learning.

Michigan's Republican Congressional Representatives should be paying attention already.
No funding of Obamacare is acceptable.
Under no circumstances was this EVER a good idea.
Let the president decide if he wants HIS paycheck or Obamacare. It matters little if the corrupt administration is left holding a budget that doesn't allow his crowning pile of steamy achievement.

Representative Kerry Bentivolio smelled a rat I believe.
He write in an email blast last evening:
"You can expect major legislation to be voted on this week.Its not far from what is really going on.
Apparently, there is a procedural move which has been used before to fool the noobs in the political arena, and provide cover for the enablers otherwise; Fund, Defund, and pretend. From Brieitbart:"The source added that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is "shopping an idea of passing defund through the House with the CR, but with a mechanism that would allow it to be decoupled in the Senate, defeated, and then the base CR be passed without coming back to the House."Huh.
Whats up with THAT, Michigan Republican congress critters?

We have NINE potential statesmen, but will be lucky if we pull out TWO in the end.
Michigan Congressmen need to pay attention. Its all over for Republicans if Obamacare is allowed to continue. Understand this. The two senators in these videos are worthy of emulation.
You have one last chance Reps Candace Miller, Dave Camp, Bill Huizinga, Justin Amash, Kerry Bentivolio, Mike Rogers, Dan Benishek, Tim Walberg, Fred Upton.

In a strangely recurring theme, another Michigan Representative performs a heroic feat of non-consequence.
From yet another electioneering press release:
WASHINGTON - U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following comments regarding the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of H.R. 2009, Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013. H.R. 2009 would bar the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from implementing or enforcing any component of President Obama's health care law. Miller said:Again, I must ask
Will the president sign this?
No he won't.
Seriously, just defund all those agencies and mandates.
OK, but will the US Senate pass, and then see it through for Obama's signature?
Via his official press release.
Washington, D.C. - Today Rep Walberg voted in favor of H.R. 367, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, to reform our nation's regulatory system. The REINS Act requires any rule or regulation with an economic impact of $100 million or more and identified by the White House's Office of Management and Budget as a `major regulation' to come before Congress for an up-or-down vote and signed by the President before taking effect.Will the president sign this?
No he won't.
