Rush Limbaugh: Ted Cruz Wanted Friday Obamacare Vote because Saturday America is Watching Texas A&M’s Johnny “Football” Manziel

Senate Democrats had planned to use Johnny “Football” Manziel to distract people from the big Obamacare vote?
The cloture vote (vote to end debate) happened today. The Senate was originally pushing for a Saturday vote. This is the vote that Ted Cruz did not want to pass because with debate closed, it only takes 51 votes to amend the Continuing Resolution and add back in funding for Obamacare. Republicans cannot stop Harry Reid from getting 51 votes to amend the bill, so Cruz stood against closing debate so that Harry Reid would be forced to allow Republicans a chance to sit at the table and have their voice heard in the Senate.
The U.S. Senate Democrats did not want you to watch and see them vote to fund Obamacare. They did not want you to see them amend the U.S. House’s Continuing Resolution. So what was their grand plan to have the nation distracted during the vote? Johnny “Football” Manziel was their plan.
According to Rush Limbaugh, the Senate wanted to vote on Saturday instead of Friday because the country would be watching Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel. That is one of the reasons, according to Limbaugh, that Ted Cruz wanted the vote to be Friday instead of Saturday. Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz wanted the nation to be watching when the Senate voted to fund Obamacare, and if the Senate were to vote on Saturday, then the nation would be watching Johnny Manziel instead.
The Senate, after being called out by Cruz and Limbaugh, went ahead and scheduled the vote for Friday instead of Saturday. It is still kind of amusing though to think about the Senate wanting to vote while the country is watching Johnny Manziel!
Johnny “Football” Manziel has mesmerized the nation. This year he seems to be even better than last year, and he won the Heisman Award as a Freshman last year. Every game he plays as quarterback of Texas A&M University, he puts up amazing statistics and is known to wow viewers with spectacular plays against even the best teams. His recent game against Alabama was easily the most watched football games in many years. Most of the audience tuned in to see Johnny Manziel right as he was making a comeback and dancing around Alabama players in order to rally the game to a near tie finish against the number one team in the nation.
