On Sunday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz went on to commend Democratic SEnators Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) and Joe Manchin (WV) after they refused to agree to Biden’s massive $3.5 trillion spending bill.
Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked Cruz, “Real quick before you go, Senator, with all of these crises unfolding, whether it’s Afghanistan, China and the threat that it poses, the wide open border, you’ve got the Biden administration trying to change the conversation. They are pushing through this and a half trillion dollar spending package.”
Joe Biden and his admin wanted to change the topic from Afghanistan. That’s why he issued his completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

Cruz responded by saying, Look, you are right. This is the Bernie Sanders budget. Bernie Sanders is a wide-eyed and admitted socialist. He says this is the most transformational bill in a generation. He means that it; it is trillions in spending. It is trillions in new taxes. It is the Green New Deal, it is — everyone who pays taxes in America will see their taxes go up under this massive proposal. Individual taxes are going up, corporate taxes are going up, small business taxes are going up, capital gains taxes are going up, the death tax is going up, seniors are getting hammered, farmers, ranchers, small businesses; it is disastrous.”
“Whether it passes or not will depend on 50 Democrats in the Senate,” Cruz continued. “Do they get Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to go along? I can tell you Chuck Schumer is putting a world of hurt and pressure on the two of them. I hope they stand their ground, that they have demonstrated some real courage so far, standing up to the crazies in their party.”
Cruz went on to say, “But you put your finger on what what the White House is trying to do. They want to change the topic from Afghanistan. It’s why Biden issued this completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate, because he wanted to change the topic from the disaster in Afghanistan. The vaccine mandate is going to be struck down in court. They know that, but the president is defying the law because he wanted the press to start defending him and stop talking about the disasters in Afghanistan. And he’s counting on a bunch of big businesses in particular, forcing their employees to comply before the matter is ever adjudicated. And before the order is struck down.”
