Senator Ted Cruz criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell


Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor Friday and charged that Mitch McConnell told a “lie,” escalating his campaign against GOP leaders and challenging the traditions of the usually decorous chamber. In a scathing floor speech, the Texas firebrand accused the Senate majority leader of breaking his word to him and the rest of the GOP conference over McConnell’s plans for the controversial Export-Import Bank, the country’s chief export credit agency.

    I’m not sure how Cruz’s tirade is going to help solve the problems. He’s a Senator, right? How about proposing a legislative solution of his own rather than lambasting other legislators? Actions speak louder than words.
