HOUSTON, TX – There’s a lot of talking going on; but no action… again!

Texas Senator Ted Cruz spent his afternoon pulling his best Energizer Bunny routine. Cruz says he’s going to talk and talk on the Senate floor until he can’t anymore about defunding Obamacare.

Meanwhile, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is telling her Congressional colleagues, Senators and anyone else who will listen, “…this is absolutely no time to shutdown this government.”

Jackson Lee says it could actually create a security risk since funding for Homeland Security and local law enforcement agencies would be cut.
