Pennsylvania's Pat Toomey was the only senator serving the Philadelphia region to vote against the plan to end the government shutdown Wednesday night, joining 17 fellow Republicans, including Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
WASHINGTON — Tea Party favorites such as Ted Cruz and Rand Paul stand out in the group of 18 Republicans who voted "no" on the bipartisan Senate deal to reopen the government and temporarily raise the debt limit. The opponents of the deal are an interesting mix, representing well-known fiscal conservatives, longtime Senate veterans and critics of President Obama's health care law Cruz of Texas, Paul of Kentucky and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida are all considered potential 2016 presidential candidates. Joining them in rejecting the deal were Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, who were all elected with Tea Party support. STORY: Senate passes bipartisan deal to end shutdown The final Senate vote was 81-18. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., did not vote because he is recuperating from heart bypass surgery. Cruz, still in his first year in the Senate, is now best known across the country for his 21-hour protest of Obama's health care law, which helped touch off the budg ...
What might happen if we hit the debt ceiling? 1. Credit markets could freeze 2. dollar could plummet 3. Interest rates could skyrocket 4. Recession that could be worse than 2008 with resulting huge unemployment yet again 5. Worldwide chaos financially 6. U.S. would lose it's top credit rating, costing billions a month on higher interest payments on the debt. As I've said many times before, republicans are the spend, spend, spend, NON fiscalites party. It's time to kick out debt-denier politicans: Ted Cruz and his *** co-horts, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, Ted Yoho, Mike Crapo, Paul Ryan, Tom Coburn, Steve King, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, and ALL the others.
25 REPUBLICANS JOINED THE DEMOCRATS to overwhelm Ted Cruz and 18 other conservatives attempt to filibuster the stopgap spending bill, which included full funding for Obamacare, by a 79-19 vote. No matter how these 25 Republicans try to spin it in subsequent votes, this is the vote that passed Obamacare. The Republican Party is divided by 25-19 and most of those 25 Republicans will be primaried when it comes time for their reelection. If your GOP senator is not on this list you might wish to vote for his opponent if he/she is primaried this year: Jerry Moran (Kan.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Richard Shelby (Ala.), Jame Risch (Idaho), James Inhofe (Okla.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), David Vitter (La.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Pat Roberts (Kan.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Pat Toomey (Pa.).
Tea Party John Cornyn Out! It is quite disingenuous to vote for cloture(Cornyn did) so it got out of comity and went to the floor(where it will most likely pass). He now is against amnesty but really he voted for by doing that. The following Republicans voted for cloture. McConnell and Sens. John Cornyn (Texas), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Rob Portman (Ohio), John Thune (S.D.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Jeff Chiesa (N.J.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) were among the Republicans who voted to advance the bill.
WANTED: Disruptive Candidates By: Erick Erickson June 3rd, 2013 at 04:30 AM This year will be the 5th RedState Gathering. We will meet the first weekend in August in New Orleans, LA. Five years ago we introduced the nation to Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, Nikki Haley, Michael Williams, Ken Cuccinelli, Karen Handel, and more. In 2010, we worked hard for Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ken Buck, and others. This year I am struggling to find good, disruptive candidates to challenge the established ways of Washington. The 2012 defeat, which some of us had predicted back in 2011, has gone exactly as I thought it would. Good candidates have turned their backs and gone to focus on their families and what’s left of their businesses. We’re going to have awesome speakers: Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, Ted Cruz, Ken Cuccinelli, Jim Bridenstine, and more. But they are elected already. Where are the disruptive outsiders who want to join their ranks? They are much harder to find now than in 2010 or even 2012. (By the way, . ...
Think about this. Without conservative activists, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Pat Toomey never would have been at CPAC.
Dear Patriot, Last Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul made history. He spoke on the floor of the Senate for thirteen hours without ceasing, defending our Constitution and demanding that the president abide by it. Eventually, he was joined by Tea Party conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, and others. Even Ron Wyden, a Democrat, joined the call for Constitutional limits on the president's authority. It was inspiring. It was courageous. It was truly a great day for our movement. Please take a moment right now to sign Tea Party Patriots' thank-you note to Rand Paul for his courageous and historic stand for our Constitution. For hours on end, when no other Senator would stand with him, Rand Paul stood alone. While RINO Republicans like Lindsay Graham and John Mccain dined with the president and called Senator Paul's speech "ridiculous," Rand Paul stood alone. Hour after hour, Senator Paul demanded an answer from Barack Obama and his administration to one simple question: does the Constitut ...
Zaid Jilani's report on Rand Paul's stand against drones provides the best coverage of Wednesday night's 13 hour filibuster-- which preceded a strong bipartisan vote (63-34) confirming John Brennan as CIA Director. In the end Rand Paul voted to confirm and the only NO votes were from heroic progressives Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Pat Leahy (D-VT), Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and a gaggle of drooling obstructionists like Ted Cruz (R-TX), Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) who ritually oppose everything and everyone that Obama proposes. Their opposition is meaningless and says nothing about anything except that they are unfit for office themselves.
Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Pat Toomey--there are more. These guys have brains; Old Guard move over.
Pat Toomey ws at the dinner & managed to stand with Rand Paul. Also Kelly Ayotte & I belve Ron Johnson there? Don't trust MSM
Thank God for leader's like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Pat Toomey, Jim Demint (recently retired and replaced by Tim Scott), Marco Rubio, Allen West (no longer in the house due to a blatantly obvious fraudulent election), etc. The very few that will stand when it is "unpopular" to stand!

Rand Paul was being that dude last night and I am super proud to see PA Sen. Pat Toomey stand up for the cause too

PA Sen. Pat Toomey Stood with Rand Paul on Drone Filibuster: Filibustering, for those who do...
Thank you Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Pat Toomey for finally getting an answer from the Administration - and to the WH's credit, BO got it right. How low has this country gone when one even has to ask if an American can be kiiled by our government without one shred of constitutional due process? I am grateful to the "Fab 5" for standing up for all Americans and our Constitution.
I've been disgusted multiple times in the past 24 hrs listening to conservative friends praise Rand Paul for his fillibuster. These same people were calling me crazy when I criticized the Bush admin for starting this drone policy.
I just want to put out in a public forum my heartfelt thanks to Senator Rand Paul, and those who helped him yesterday. So, Thank you to: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, John Thune, John Barrasso, Tim Scott, John Cornyn, Jerry Moran, Ron Johnson, Jeff Flake, Mitch Mcconnell and Saxby Chambliss. I would also like to place a special thank you to Ron Wyden for thinking outside the box, and stepping up, even though it went against the grain of his fellow Democrats. If you agree, feel free to copy and paste this, to share it with your friends, or better yet, drop an email to these fine gentlemen, and tell them you approve of their action.
Here's what Rand Paul did with his LollaPaulooza yesterday: He engaged the country in a serious discussion of first principles. You may not agree with him, but he did it. The Constitution was actually discussed on the Senate floor for more than a dozen hours. Incredible.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized Paul for posing the question. “I find the question offensive,” he said on the Senate floor this morning. You could take Lindsey Graham's name out and put Obama or Eric Holder in and you would never know the difference there no difference between the establishment republicans and the democrats they both love big government and spending our money. Tea Party Patriots are the ones who stood up and forced Obama's hand. God bless Rand Paul,Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey.
Rand Paul Ends Dramatic Filibuster By Bobby Eberle March 7, 2013 7:13 am Text Size: A A A Rand Paul, the senator from Kentucky who is up in arms about the possibility of drone strikes on American soil against Americans, took to the Senate floor in order to try to block the nomination of John Brennan as CIA Director. Paul spoke and spoke and spoke. With the help of senators from both parties, Paul's filibuster lasted nearly thirteen hours, and hopefully sent a message to Attorney General Eric Holder and the entire Obama administration. Why was Rand Paul so fired up? As was reported by GOPUSA on Wednesday, when asked about drone strikes in a letter from Paul, Holder replied by saying, "It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the president to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States." Paul had sent a letter to President Bara ...
~Tom Coburn, Kelly Ayotte, Saxby Chambliss, John Hoeven, John Mccain, Bob Corker, Mike Johanns, Lindsey Graham, Richard Burr, Dan Coats, Ron Johnson, and Pat Toomey, your absence during one of our country's increasingly rare moments of uncorrupted patriotism is shameful. You are all supposed to be the premier champions of our citizens freedom and protection. Lindsey Graham and John Mccain, any position opposing Sen. Rand Paul's concerns should instantaneously dissolve all credibility anyone may have once previously held. However, the extremity of your disregard is an arguable context for impeachment from office. You are an embarrassment to both yourself and the oath you took. I want to see some re-shares. The only reason this doesn't become the biggest outcry in America will come from a lack of exposure.
We have one Senator we can be proud of --- Rand Paul! Cheers and prayers for you.
Rand Paul gets filibuster relief from Pat Toomey
So Senators McCain and Graham are angry at Rand Paul for his filibuster. Angry because he did not suck up to the old school republicans. I am angry with Senator John Mccain and Senator Graham, they have allowed Obama to run like a madman through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They have done nothing to slow Obama down. Until they and others like them are gone from the Senate and the House we can expect more of the same. THANK YOU Ted Cruz. YOU ARE THE MAN. You made me proud. I say out with the old and in with the new. Anyone with me on this?
Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Tim Scott of South Carolina all stood with Rand Paul
From a look at Sen. Toomey's role in the Rand Paul yesterday.
PICTURE: sends Rand Paul bag of Milky Ways to congratulate him on filibuster effort
So the only REALLY negative reaction I've heard from Rand's stunt last night was from John Mccain and Lindsey Graham! Who were having dinner with Obama while Rand was literally standing up for the Constitution! (Some republicans like Pat Toomey both went to the diner and supported Rand Paul). I really feel this marks a change for the Republican Party either for better or worse. I think its pretty clear which direction will engage the next generation of voters and enable meaningful dialogue with Democrats and third parties... and which way will lead the party into obsolescence. I'm glad McCain and Graham didn't even pretend to support Rand. I'd love them to show their true colors and dig their own graves, hopefully without taking the whole GOP with them, but if they do... eh.
everything is ridiculous MTPICTURE: sends Rand Paul bag of Milky Ways …
Do you think the Liberals are nervous about the new voices of the GOP? Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz just to name a few.
Rand Paul great job. Pat Toomey dinner with the President. Suspect?
Absolutely taking my hat off to Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) for his old-fashioned filibuster to bring to light the abomimable proposal of using drone strikes against American citizens--no Miranda rights, no trial, no jury, no judge! Only an executive branch that wants you gone! Brennan, the nominate head of the CIA should not get a shoe-in vote without finding out what the full ramifications, explanations and definitions of the drone strike program and the administration will not release the documents to the Senate Committee so they can vote with full knowledge. What are they trying to hide? Huge applause for Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), Marco Rubio (R-Florida), Saxby Chambliss (R-Georgia), Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania) for their support! America cannot stand down while our constitution is shredded!
As of right NOW we are in hour of Rand Paul's filibuster! He has been joined by: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) Congratulations to these men, and any I have missed!
Senators who received 100% ratings from the ACU: Ron Johnson, Kyl, Mike Lee, McConnell, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey and, drumroll, Marco Rubio
Imagine a Republican Party without the leadership, energy and principled ideas coming from Senators like Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Pat Toomey and Mike Lee, because that is what you would get from a lack of real primary race competition now being proposed by Karl Rove. The choice is simple: should voters choose who represents them in Washington, DC, or should political insiders make the decision behind closed doors?
"Without we would most likely not...have...Pat Toomey, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, Ron Johnson, & Ted Cruz."
From Senator Demint Dear Friends, Like you, I was disappointed by the outcome of election day. But I remain undaunted. Hundreds of Republican candidates campaigned on real plans to address our runaway debt and looming entitlement crisis and won a strong majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. Rising conservative leaders like Jeff Flake, Ted Cruz and Deb Fischer will now join me and stalwarts like Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Pat Toomey in the U.S. Senate. Yet many are still asking: “Where do we go from here?” We will certainly face many battles in Congress in the coming months that will give us the opportunity to clearly articulate the failures of liberalism and the common sense of conservative alternatives. We must not shrink from the fight on Capitol Hill or in drawing these distinctions for the American people, regardless of the attempted distortions by the mainstream press. This election didn't change the fact that wasteful spending has not healed our economy. It has .. ...
It looks like Republicans Todd Aiken and Richard Murdoch have lost their seats. I am a Republican, but I feel that this is a wake up call to Republican politicians that they need to keep their mouths shut when asked about abortion and rape. There is a new pro freedom/ libertarian wave in the Republican Party as evidenced by candidates such as Rand Paul, Jim Demint, Justin Amash, Pat Toomey, Jeff Flake and others. This needs to grow. If the Republican Party continues to move in this direction I believe we will find freedom and prosperity once again!
Why does the Republican Establishment always attack and abandon conservative candidates rather than moderate ones? They say it's because conservative candidates are less electable, but the facts don't support their claim. They said Pat Toomey was too conservative to win in Pennsylvania. They were wrong. They said Marco Rubio couldn't win in Florida. Wrong again. And they said Rand Paul would lose if Republicans nominated him in Kentucky. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The Tea Party. net.
Matt Kibbe makes a great point. Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Pat Toomey have all proposed balanced budgets. Harry Reid, you and your democrats not longer have an excuse and can no longer blame the republicans for the lack of a budget being passed.
Tea Party strategists are working hard to establish a major beachhead in the Senate next January. Combined with at least half a dozen sitting senators who already have strong Tea Party ties – including Rand Paul of Kentucky, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin –...
. said on that Ted Cruz will be more like Pat Toomey than Rand Paul. Hey, both are better than KBH and Sen Cornyn!
2009 - Chris Christie defeats Jon Corzine 2009 - Bob McDonnel defeats Creigh Deeds 2009 - Scott Brown defeats Martha Coakley 2010 - Rand Paul defeats Jack Conway 2010 - Marco Rubio defeats Charlie Christ 2010 - Pat Toomey defeats Arlen Spector 2012- Ted Cruz defeats David Dewhurst We dont want your system anymore. We dont want your two party system, and neither did George Washington. We are truly patriots. WE believe in the constitution. We believe in the founding fathers. We believe in America. We dont want chaos. We dont want revolution. We dont want blood in the streets. We just want our country back. Not from Barack Obama. From those who are corrupt. Those who think they know better, then we the people. We the people are gonna make mistake, evidence, Barack Obama. WE're gonna make mistakes, but thats ok. WE will correct them. All of you big government republicans, just go to the other party. We're tired of people giving us the same choice with a different animal marking.The battle is in for the soul o ...
Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Marco Rubio in Florida and Ted Cruz IN TEXAS. All examples of true conservatives upsetting establishment moderates in elections that were thought to be foregone conclusions... until the people spoke.
This country would be in better shape if Rand Paul, Jim Demint, Mike Lee, and Pat Toomey were "D.C. Insiders."
To chagrin of conservatives everywhere, Cornyn opposed Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. Now you know why we care
"Ted Cruz is the only senate candidate in the country endorsed by myself, Jim Demint, Mike Lee & Pat Toomey." ~Rand Paul
See, if you live in OR, your representatives are not interested in getting spending under control. And why? Because all these Resolutions were brought on by Republicans. The Democrats produce nothing. Partisan scum, lock step all the way. Check it out; Paul Budget Resolution - Vote Rejected (16-83, 1 Not Voting) This budget resolution from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., would set new FY 2013 budget authority at $3.084 trillion. According to the Senator, his resolution would balance the budget in five years and cut the national deficit by $2 trillion over ten years. It introduces means-testing requirements to Social Security and raises the retirement age to 70 by 2032. It would also means-test Medicare and raise the age of eligibility to 70 over a 20-year window. Senior citizens would be permitted to enroll in the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan used by congressional Members and staff. The resolution would set a flat tax rate of 17 percent for all individuals and businesses and eliminate all credits and dedu ...
Despite literally millions of dollars in false, negative advertising by his opponent, we've seen growing momentum at the Ted Cruz for Senate campaign. It's no secret that America needs conservative leaders in Washington, leaders who will make the tough choices we need to get America back on the right track. This is why Ted Cruz has received the endorsement from conservative leaders from across the country, including Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Pat Toomey, Sen. Mike Lee, and Sen. Jim Demint. And it's exactly why I'm proud to announce that our campaign received the endorsement of Gov. Sarah Palin this week!
You can use this one-page "report card" to compare the Republican Study Committee, Pat Toomey, and Paul Ryan budgets to the FreedomWorks-endorsed Rand Paul budget. This report card was last updated on April 18th to include Senator Pat Toomey's budget.
.People like to talk about how Christine O'Donnell lost, but they ignore Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey.
While Ted Cruz has been endorsed by conservative Senators such as South Carolina’s Jim Demint, Kentucky’s Rand Paul, Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, and Utah’s Mike Lee in addition to influential conservative groups like FreedomWorks, nothing gives a campaign more rocket fuel, especially among conservati...
We thought Mitch Mcconnell was a right wing warrior. It turns out he’s just a typical Washingtonian appropriator who has presided over a massive expansion of the welfare state doing not much more than issuing bold platitudes as he cuts deals to expand government spending. He claims to have advanced the conservative cause, but says he has to be mindful that to govern, Republicans must reach out to all Americans. The hypocrisy is that in 2010, with the rise of the Tea Party, Mitch Mcconnell backed Arlen Specter against Pat Toomey, Charlie Crist against Marco Rubio (McConnell staffers went to Florida to help Crist), Robert Bennett against Mike Lee, and Trey Grayson against Rand Paul. Of course the Tea Party candidates WON!! Get rid of McConnell!
Senator from Kentucky says that three decades is too long to wait for the budget to be balanced. Says he is more likely to support Pat Toomey's budget plan.
