GOP Senators Try to Punish Ted Cruz

This past Friday, Republican Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz stood tall on the Senate floor like the Texan he is and accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying to him in a meeting.

That wouldn’t do for McConnell and his minions. On Sunday, when Cruz asked for 16 senators to agree to hold a roll call vote on an Iran-related amendment, only three raised their hands. Then, when Cruz’s colleague Mike Lee of Utah tried to do the same with a vote to defund Planned Parenthood, he got the same treatment.

You see, it wasn’t about voting on principles. It was because Cruz dared to challenge McConnell on his crony tactics promoting lobbyists and big government, and to point out his similarities to the former crooked Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Cruz was also accused of violating Senate rule #19, which states that “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming of a Senator.”

And Ted Cruz, being one Senator with actual cajones, was not about to slither away shame-faced.

Senator Orrin Hatch, took to the floor to lecture the Senators about treating each other with “courtesy and respect.”

John Cornyn, Cruz’s fellow Senator from Texas, also took to the Senate floor to lecture the recalcitrant Cruz.

The plebes — the common people, the little people who are supposedly ‘represented’ by these corrupt blowhards — were righteously angry.

There were some full-throated shout-outs for Cruz as well.

From Texas State Senator Konni Burton:

White House reporter for Roll Call:

Donald Trump isn’t the only Presidential candidate in the Republican stable who is unafraid to speak his mind. Ted Cruz is also fearless, and what’s more, he is a well-spoken, whip-smart candidate whose conservative bona fides are unquestionable.

You go Ted!

    That’s right, punish your fellow Senator for telling the truth to a liar….that is why Ted Cruz and Trump are so appealing to a lot of people. I could really go for a Cruz/Trump, Trump/Cruz ticket!

    Cruz speaks the truth regarding power and the corruption of those in power … the truth has no enemies except those scared of it
