Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government

Ted Cruz: "No Party can stay in power by lying to the American people"

I'm not as optimistic as Senator Cruz that the constituents will persuade the betraying senators to get the show on the road.

From where I'm sitting, I'm hearing the peasants beyond the moat say that they are done with career politicians. And Senator Cruz's words in the video below — particularly the words unfortunately and in time — don't cut it.  He has only an intellectual understanding of the struggles of the peasants beyond the moat (aka The Deplorables).

The full interview with Senator Cruz after the failed July 28, 2017 vote on the "skinny repeal":

Senator Cruz also stated:
“I’ll tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we’re going to repeal ObamaCare and you vote for ObamaCare, those are not consistent,” he added. “And the American people are entirely justified in saying, ‘Any politician who told me that and voted the other didn’t tell me the truth; they lied to me.’ ”


“You can’t have your central promise for seven years be we’ll repeal ObamaCare, and then you show up and vote not even to take up the bill to consider repealing ObamaCare."
Do the three senators who voted no on the "skinny repeal" — Senators Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and John McCain (Ariz.) — realize what they have wrought? In their zeal to resist President Trump, they may well have dealt the death blow to the GOP.

Do they actually want to bring about single payer?
