Earlier this year Rand Paul’s filibuster over use of drones in America demonstrated the effective power that one Senator can have in defining and clarifying policy. Recently Ted Cruz stood on the floor for an entire day in his fight to stop Obamacare. Though it was not a filibuster, it was an opportunity for congress to stop the activation of the health care law in 2014. Though it failed to convince Democrats this stand did something significant for Republican voters in exposing who is in the establishment GOP. Participating in this fight against Obamacare on the house side was Congressman Paul Broun running for US Senate in Georgia to replace Sen Saxby Chambliss. Chambliss a Republican voted for the recent bill to give funding for Obamacare in 2014. Is Georgia ready for a Senator willing to fight against the establishment on both sides of the aisle?
