Sen. Cruz, there you go again

Posted: Thursday, March 6, 2014 12:00 am

After the House voted on a clean bill to raise the debt limit, it went to the Senate where only 51 votes were needed to approve this bill.

This is the same senator who insisted on shutting down the government in the fall, as he wanted to repeal ObamaCare.
