Praising the House and Senate for passing a continuing resolution that would ensure the military remained funded even if the government is shut down tonight, Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) urged his congressional colleagues to consider passing other similar bills.
“I think the House should pass multiple continuing resolutions, focusing on all of the things President Obama listed in his speech to the American people this afternoon and funding them,” Cruz told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow.
“One continuing resolution funding the VA [Veterans' Affairs] in its entirety,” he added. “Another one funding our national parks. Another one funding our border patrol agents, so that we don’t have critical services denied the American people.”
