Ted Cruz Will Block The Very Bill He Asked The House To Pass
Texas Senator Ted Cruz confirmed today that he would attempt to block the Senate from considering the very bill he asked the House of Representatives to pass just last week:
Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday reiterated his commitment to blocking a procedural Senate vote on a House-approved spending bill, saying that Senate Democrats would have too much leeway to add in funding for Obamacare.
“Any vote for cloture, any vote to allow Harry Reid to add funding to Obamacare with just a 51-vote threshold, a vote for cloture is a vote for Obamacare,” the Texas Republican said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And I think Senate Republicans are going to stand side-by-side with Speaker [John] Boehner and House Republicans, listening to the people and stopping this train wreck that is Obamacare.”
So prepare for a week of Cruz making his fellow Republicans look ridiculous.
