Cruz: GOP senators think they have 'foolish, gullible constituents' Would Republican pols lie? Tell me it isn't so!
“Make no mistake about it, this was their desired outcome,” Cruz said. “A lot of the Republicans wanted exactly what Barack Obama wanted, exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted, exactly what Harry Reid wanted, which is to raise the debt ceiling, but they wanted to be able to tell what they view as their foolish, gullible constituents back home they didn’t do it.”Cruz pointed out that in the weeks before, Republican senators had been saying that they wanted concessions attached to the increase, not the “clean” bill that ended up passing.“It’s like they think the American people are just a bunch of rubes, that we don’t remember what they say,” Cruz said.
