While I rarely agree with Sen. Ted Cruz, he is correct on this topic. The Marketplace Fairness Act (S743) is bad for business.

This catch phrase is being used all over the place by Neocons to criticize Pres. Obama for opposing the Keystone Xtra Lethal Pipeline. The media is not challenging them on this statement but let them finish their BS talking points. Matthews came close to saying it the other day but checked himself and didn't finish that thought.

There are more examples of this hypocrisy such as the immigration impasse.
