Ted Cruz has a new plan to stop the compromise designed to re-open the government and raise the debt limit.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has announced a final plan that he says will halt the bi-partisan agreement reached in the Senate and expected to pass in the House.  He is certain that it will mean the full repeal of Obamacare.

Politico’s crack reporters have found out from a ‘confidential source’ that Cruz, and his sock-puppet friend Mike Lee (R-Utah) have scheduled a secret meeting with Tea Party members from both the House and Senate which will be held in the basement of the Tortilla Coast Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C. later tonight.

Politico has been informed, by unidentified sources, that the conclave of Tea Party members has decided to ‘collectively hold their breath’ until President Obama surrenders on all of their demands!

“This is so brilliant,” said Senator Mike Lee.  “The President will have to give in to us. What other choice does he have?”

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) declared that the strategy cannot possibly fail. He went further, by stating: “This assures come-from-behind victories for Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor’s race and for Steve Lonagan in the New Jersey contest for the U.S. Senate. Even better, it spells doom for the re-election prospects for Chris Christie as governor in New Jersey.  This will teach him to not blindly support the Tea Party at all times!”

Former half-governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, immediately announced her support for the plan. When asked if she really thought it would succeed, her unwavering response was: “You betcha.”

The pending plan by Cruz and his fellow Tea Party cohorts, received only a lukewarm reaction from Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), who paused briefly to carefully consider his response, then screamed loudly: “They are fucking idiots."

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.
