Ted Cruz SLAMS McConnell AGAIN After Ex-Im Bank Vote

Another day in the Senate means another day for Mitch McConnell to embarrass everyone involved, this time over a vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank.

Ted Cruz issued the following statement…


“Tonight, the McConnell-Reid leadership team pushed through another
win for the Washington Cartel, and they did so at the taxpayers’
expense. By casting votes in favor of cronyism and special interests,
the Senate made clear what group matters most to them… and the answer
is not the American people.

“Worse still, the one person who had the ability to make sure the
Ex-Im Bank remained expired was the majority leader. Rather than
keeping the promise he made to every member of his party, he turned
his back on the American people and allowed one of the worst examples
of corporate welfare our nation has ever known to be resurrected from
the dead.

“Instead of taking up issues that really matter to the American
people, like defunding Planned Parenthood, standing up against Iran,
passing ‘Kate’s Law’ and ending sanctuary cities, the Senate chose to
satisfy the demands of big businesses with even bigger pocketbooks.

“Fortunately, leaders in the House have indicated this bill is dead on
arrival. I hope that my colleagues in the House remain true to
conservative principles and stand firm in refusing to surrender to the
Washington Cartel.”
