Ted Cruz said Saturday that the House Republican leadership had made it next to impossible for him to get money from Super PACs after he filibustered the Affordable Care Act in 2013 - an action that helped trigger a 16-day government shutdown.

PACS, and when the defund fight happened, that dropped to almost zero," Cruz said at the Rockingham County Republican Committee and Seacoast Republican Women Brunch here.

    Friday | Crooks and Liars

    Yeah, I don't really see this change working for Rand Paul, former Prince of Liberty. What his supporters liked about him was his absolutism, the white-hot ideological purity that lifted him above the grubby politicians! Because now he's entering the ranks of the GOP's "mainstream" extremist wing and he's lost what made him stand out: That sheer, wack-a-doodle joy of saying whatever popped into his head.

    What on earth is so extreme about being a principled, constitutional conservative? Ted Cruz is truly a breath of fresh air in a very polluted and toxic political environment.
