Ted Cruz: Reid and Obama Trying to Make Government Shutdown as Painful as Possible

TedCruzOpenHands

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released the following statement on the Senate’s refusal to take up House-passed continuing resolutions:
“This morning, disability payments for wounded veterans would be fully funded if not for Harry Reid. “This morning, our National Guard and reservists would be fully funded if not for Harry Reid. “This morning, our national parks and war memorials would be open and fully funded if not for Harry Reid. “This morning, the National Institutes of Health would be fully funded if not for Harry Reid. “Harry Reid and President Obama should stop playing partisan games; they believe that the shutdown benefits them politically, and so they are cynically trying to make it as painful as possible for the American people. “None of these limited CRs implicates or even mentions Obamacare; Harry Reid and President Obama shouldn’t be holding veterans hostage simply to force Obamacare on the American people. “The House of Representatives has passed bipartisan funding for all these government functions; Senate Republicans are united in support of these vital funding bills. It is only because Harry Reid and Senate Democrats continue to object that these are not today on the President’s desk.”

            It was supposed to be a joke; however, it appears it is not funny. (SIGH)

          • Rosalie

            As a matter of fact, I thought it was funny but I thought you were serious. I hope that makes you feel better.

      Cruz will not stand in the way of Mullah Obama. Soon we will take your guns, ban Christianity and declare the Caliphate. You baggers better convert or you will not receive your 72 live sturgeons in the afterlife.

    it’s just dereliction of duty by the democrats. Very immature for sure. What’s the remedy to correct them according to the law?

  • Jean Nelson

    It seems he is one of the very few real men standing. The other wimps should not buckle to obama. Just as parents shouldn’t let their little darling whine until they get their way

    It is all about the Obama Administration. It is not about right or wrong it is about I DID THAT. Time to let it GO Obama and Reid.

  • Bryan

    the govt slowdown had great benefits. obama showed his true colors ~ his hatred and malice for good Americans, vets, law abiding citizens and some just happened to be associated with the TEA party. obamanocare is a nuclear bomb on our economy, our freedoms, laws and peoples lives. o nocare has to be stopped. We saw what CONgressmen supported the fraudulent and destructive o nocare that were willing to have the slowdown and even threatened a default (that wouldnt have happened but still they threatened). CO just recalled 3 jackwagons for going against the USC. Lets recall the other traitors that want o nocare to enslave us till death do us part. We need to get united if we are to survive. Lets repent and bless God again. 2 Chronicles 7:14
