A Republican taking action based on science is certainly news

Will Ted get himself returned to Trump's bad people list by doing this?

10 ( +13 / -3 )

Trump is probably busy right now trying to get both of them on a cruise ship so they won't add to his numbers.

Hopefully Cruz and Gosar don't test positive for the virus.

Next CPAC event will be exciting:

Palin around with tour-ists on the good ship Princess Cruz, then quarantine survival camp at the Into the Wild bus site.

A difference between Cruz and most Americans is Cruz has immediate access to the best health care, public or private, taxpayers can provide. It's doubtful he'll pay much if anything at all. Tad diff from most of the rest of us. And if he misses work, he won't lose a penny in pay. Does anyone know the status of TrumpGOPhealthcare, the one that was going to be better than Obamacare? Or after 3 years is it still at the don't care stage.

All members of Congress have free medical cover regardless how much it costs.

What about the prison population, what happens if this virus gets in or homeless people in hostels. No sick benefits for many zero hour contract people like Uber driver. Will they force themselves to work because they can't afford to take time off.

Why would it be? You can be religious and believe in science. Who told you otherwise? That reminds of the time, I was in NY and he thought in California we still ride horses, come on! Lol

You can believe both, most conservatives I know do.

So what do you propose, looks like the Dems have their work cut out for them.

I’m sure there are some solutions to this problem, but we’re not at that level yet where there’s a crazy pandemic going around

Cruz et al. enjoy the best health care courtesy of the exploited American taxpayers who also need to self-quarantine from the virulent Republican strain of Trumpism that has raged through Twitter and infected all forms of media (until November when it should go away "like a miracle").

We should be on lockdown long time ago, when we learned about Wuhan... Because of the grave stupidity of our government lots of people like Cruz are suffering... Get rid of useless incompetent politicians, elect smart ones...

This could be PR or maybe it is not - I do not know.

However, you cannot beat the spin that the CCP top officials in China are putting on this

Interesting that Xi is being paraded as the hero but Chinese people in mainland China complaining about this online (one whom I know personally) are being immediately censored.

Preparations are needed even before the virus numbers start to climb.

   "We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus. We moved VERY early to close borders to certain areas, which was a Godsend. V.P. is doing a great job. The Fake News Media is doing everything possible to make us look bad. Sad!"

bass4funk: "Why would it be?"

Because Cruz has proven he does not believe in science. In fact, he backed Trump's pick of the bible-tumper Pence to be in charge of Corona, when the only science he's involved with is the fact that he allowed an HIV crises to SPREAD because he refused to pass laws that would have helped.

Socialism for the already well-off.

Typical.
