Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a recent interview that the filibuster rule change made in the Senate on Thursday will hurt the chamber’s ability to pass legislation.
“It will poison the atmosphere of the Senate,” Cruz said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” a transcript of which was posted online Friday afternoon.
This from the guy who plopped the turd in the punchbowl with his filibuster over Obamacare, then goaded the House into the shutdown in October. What a riot.
Not to be outdone by his junior partner, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) claims the landmark nuclear pact with Iran was pulled off just to distract attention from Obamacare.
These guys are the Martin & Lewis of Capitol Hill.
