Cruz: Senate Republicans an ‘Air Force Dive-Bombing’ House GOP

by Andrew Johnson

Ted Cruz wishes some of his Senate Republican colleagues had put up more of a fight to defund or delay Obamacare over the past few weeks.

“Instead, unfortunately, the Senate Republicans were divided and became basically an air force dive-boming the House Republicans and conservatives,” Cruz said on Fox News on Wednesday night as the House was set to approve the Senate deal that would end the shutdown. “Once that happened, there was no way to hold the line with the American people and actually achieve meaningful relief from all the harms coming from Obamacare.”

Yesterday, as it became clear that the Senate deal would pass, Cruz had more critical comments of Senate Republicans, labeling them “the Washington establishment [that] is refusing to listen to the American people.”
