Cruz: Deal 'embodies everything' people dislike about D.C.
In a speech on the Senate floor just now, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said the Senate plan “embodies everything about the Washington establishment that frustrates” people.
“Unfortunately today, the United States Senate is saying: You don’t have a voice in Washington,” Cruz said of Americans being subjected to Obamacare. “This is a terrible deal.”
Cruz acknowledged that the bill would pass, but decried it as a burden on the backs of Americans who don’t want Obamacare.
Cruz said, though, that he hoped the last three weeks begin a movement that forces the Senate to listen.
“At the same time, I am optimistic, I am inspired by the millions of Americans who have risen up, and if the American people continue to rise up, I am confident the Senate will (make like the House) and listen to the American people,” Cruz said.
