Cruz: Budget Bill Exemplifies What is Wrong with Washington
December 18, 2013
WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement regarding today's final vote on the budget deal:
"This budget bill exemplifies what is wrong with Washington. Nothing is getting fixed. No important reforms are being addressed. The people get little in return except more debt, more taxes, and no change to the Obamacare disaster. The Senate majority voted to allow Sen. Reid to ignore all Republican amendments. Over and over, this is the roughshod style of leadership that characterizes this Senate and underscores why Washington badly needs to listen to the people."
