Cruz: McConnell Blocked Amendments for Kate’s Law, Defunding Planned Parenthood

by Ian Hanchett | Breitbart  |  published on July 26, 2015

Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked amendments to defund Planned Parenthood, end the Congressional exemption to Obamacare and for Kate’s Law on Friday’s “Mark Levin Show.”

Cruz, after re-iterating his charges that McConnell lied about whether there was a deal regarding Trade Promotion Authority and the Export-Import Bank, stated, “Now, let me tell you all the amendments Mitch McConnell blocked because he wants to reauthorize this corporate welfare and cronyism. He blocked my amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. In the wake of these gruesome videos, where they appear to admit to multiple felonies, we should be defunding them, and we should defund them this week. He blocked my amendment to repeal the Congressional exception from Obamacare. He doesn’t want a vote on that. It’s another of example of cronyism, [Sen.] Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Obama administration exempted Congress from the plain language from Obamacare. He blocked amendments to end sanctuary cities, to cut off funding. He blocked my amendment for Kate’s Law, mandatory minimum five years for an illegal alien convicted of illegal re-entry. And he blocked also my amendment saying that no Iranian sanctions can be lifted unless and until Iran recognizes Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and releases the four American hostages they’re holding.”

    Reid and McConnell are almost one and the same. Reid is a communist socialist that carried Obama through his first term in office. Then the house and Senate were over taken by the GOP because people wanted to put an end to the bull shit Obama and his puppets were pulling. Here was the perfect opportunity to make some real progress but that was quickly screwed up when Boehner took the reins from Pelosi and Reid was replaced with McConnell, the worse possible person for the job. His record of do nothing and do nothing right continues and this is the primary reason why Trump has made the giant strides he has made toward Presidency. Boehner and McConnell both need replaced. Perhaps a good ones for the job would be Trey Gordy, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul or a fighter instead of another Obama puppet.

    WHY, is McConell still in the senate except for the direct crooked BASTARDS like himself funding his re-elections!!!! GOD awful isn’t it!!!!

    With only a few exceptions, certain states in the South have long been known for their corruption in politics. That’s probably how weasel McConnell got to where he is. How do I know? I live here and have been to or through most of our states.

    We knew who they were. But the people in their State always puts them back in. Until the people are ready to clean the House and the Senate we will have this to continue. Can the people really want a Progressive in the GOP. They do not tell the truth. Read Ted Cruz’s book “Time for the Truth” It tells it all.
    Even the new Rep and Senators that were new didn’t stand up to them.

    Everyone of those should have been added. I live in Indiana and I knew he was going to be like this. It doesn’t really matter anymore because these assholes are all putting there buddies in these positions and I am not sure how to stop it with the exception of something that would offend all these PC mothers. I would like to offend them but I do not have the power to do anything.

    The Republican leadership in the House and Senate are not any different than the Democrat leadership. Ted Cruz is bring that to light very eloquently. You can bet that what these politicians are doing is not just making a mistakes, because if they were, the laws of probability would dictate that every once an a while they would err in the favor of the country. The systematic destruction of a free country is their goal.

    Another reason for term limits, get these corrupt assholes out of Washington.

      What ever happen to Recalls. Throw that old Goat out and take all of his Ill-gotten gains from him, as we do to our Drug dealers .

    And we thought it was just the Democrats who were liberal scum bags,has anything really changed from Harry Reid to Mitch McConnell,it doesn’t look much like it,I wonder who’s bidding McConnell is doing.—–Jim Hunt

      Wonder what would change Mitch McConnell’s mind ? I guess it was not his daughter who was shot, well considering his age it would be more like his Grand daughter. We are all getting so tired of what we see, that a hit from Iran on the Capitol is what we are heading for and who would care. We have politicians constantly going against our best interest and we can do nothing about it. Gets to the point just let our Country go to hell . No we cannot do that !
