Sen. Ted Cruz issued a strongly worded rebuke against his fellow Republican colleagues regarding a recent debt ceiling vote that he saw as all show, zero substance and outright “trickery” to the American public.
He was referring to the recent Republican cave to White House and Democratic demands to lift the debt ceiling.
“Republican leadership said we want this to pass, but if every senator affirmatively consents to doing it on 51 votes, then we can all cast a vote no, and we can go home to our constituents and say we opposed it,” Mr. Cruz said, in the CNN report. “And listen, that sort of show vote, that sort of trickery to the constituents, is why Congress has a 13 percent approval rating.”
Mr. Cruz said what’s needed on Capitol Hill is more honesty.
“In my view,” he said, in CNN, “we need to be honest with our constituents. And last week, what it was all about was truth and transparency. I think all 45 Republicans should have stood together and said, of course not.”
