I have no idea why the media has not "followed the money"

Follow the Money: All the money leads back to Koch Brother's organizations.

      Ted Cruz is a conman who is gaming people with this Fundraising Gimmick.

     Ted Cruz claims he started the "dontfundit" website, but in reality all the donations go to Koch Brother's organizations. Meaning, Ted Cruz did not start that website at all, Koch Brothers did.

     Ted Cruz and Koch Brother's employee, Jim DeMint (Koch's Heritage Org) have been all over the country talking about "defund" and conning people into thinking it can be done ... all the while knowing Obamacare will be funded ... which is why this is just a GIMMICK to rake in millions.

       Go to any of the "dont fund it" website and Kock Brother's have their "Donate" button which has all donations going to Koch Brother's organization -- where they are raking in millions of dollars in donations from those sites.

1) Don't Fund Obamacare website

  Click on "Donate" Button and it says the money goes to: Senate Conservative Fund

Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) promotes conservative policies and helps elect principled leaders to the United States Senate. SCF is an independent organization and is not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees. SCF was founded by former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint to help the grassroots stand up to the Republican establishment in Washington.

    Here's why I am certain Ted Cruz hooked up with Koch employee, Jim DeMint, and the two are gaming a Fundraising Gimmick:

1) Back in June, Ted Cruz, Jim DeMint and the Kochs knew, like everyone else, that Obamacare will be funded.

2) Koch employee Jim Demint and cooked up this Fundraising Gimmick that will give Koch Brother's Heritage Org, Koch Brother's Senate Conservative Fund, and Koch Brother's Freedom Works millions in donations.

3) Ted Cruz's wrote an Op Ed on Real Clear Politics website and in the first paragraph Ted Cruz tells readers to "DontFundIt"

4) Sunday Cruz repeated the "DontFundIt" website over and over again.

    So today I was on Twitter and noticed that Erick Erickson is getting in on this Fundraising Gimmick.  Here is one of Erick Erickson's blog post pimping for the Koch Brothers

... they have also seen real leadership in Cruz and Lee. They’ve also found real voices on the outside like Heritage Action for America [Koch's] and the Senate Conservatives Fund [Koch's] with which they can engage for education and motivation.

   Let's be clear, those "defundit" website are not designed simply to get "signatures" and emails of people who oppose Obamacare ... those website are designed solely to get donations Koch Brother's organizations.

     Ted Cruz has no intention of defunding Obamacare and no intention of repealing Obamacare.  Ted Cruz's "end game" is to raise millions of dollars for the Koch Brothers who, in turn, will line Cruz's pockets with money.

Follow the money.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
