Ted Cruz, 5 Other GOP Senators Vote Against 6,000-Page ‘Radical Left’ ‘Legislative Monstrosity’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is one of six GOP senators who voted against the nearly 6,000-page coronavirus relief and government spending bill passed by both the House and Senate on Monday, calling it a “legislative monstrosity” with $1.4 trillion in a “wasteful end-of-year spending bill and countless pet projects” advancing the interests of the “radical left” and “swamp lobbyists.”

Cruz released a comprehensive statement on Monday, criticizing the fact that lawmakers attached $900 billion in coronavirus relief to a $1.4 trillion “legislative monstrosity,” which he concluded will “escape close scrutiny because three times, congressional Democrats rejected good faith efforts to pass targeted relief.”

The Texas lawmaker said he would have thrown his support behind the bill if it focused “solely” on reopening the economy and getting Americans back to work.

“For example, the final COVID-19 package rejects Democrats’ misguided attempts to bail out blue states’ underfunded pension plans and replenishes the Paycheck Protection Program – which will go a long way in helping small businesses keep their doors open and employees on the payroll,” Cruz said, adding that it includes “funding for vaccine procurement and distribution, and will support states in their efforts to expand testing.”

“Unfortunately, this behemoth did not end there,” he said, noting that Americans are already saddled with $27 trillion in debt.

The Texas Republican blasted the bill for failing to make any “meaningful spending cuts” while instead advancing the “interests of the radical Left, special interests, and swamp lobbyists, with funding going towards expanding authority for more H-2B visas for foreign workers while a near record number of Americans remain unemployed, as well as laying the ground work for Democrats to implement the ‘Green New Deal’ by claiming a ‘need’ to meet the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, or zero-emission energy sources.”

Democrats, he added, “exploited the need for relief to advance their political agenda instead of working on legislation that puts our nation on the path to recovery.”

While the bill passed with an overwhelming majority in the Senate, five other GOP senators, in addition to Cruz, rejected the legislation — Sens. Rand Paul (KY), Rick Scott (FL), Marsha Blackburn (TN), Mike Lee (UT), and Ron Johnson (WI).

Paul blasted fellow GOP lawmakers who supported the measure during a fiery speech on the Senate floor on Monday.

“Maybe these new free money Republicans should join the everybody-gets-a-guaranteed-income caucus. Why not $20,000 a year for everybody? Why not $30,000? If we can print up money with impunity, why not do it?” he asked.

“The treasury can just keep printing the money. That is, until someone points out that the emperor has no clothes and that the dollar no longer has value,” the Kentucky Republican added.

Does The World See A Fearless Church Or A Fainting Church?

We praise God that there are, even in this late hour, many remnant and fearless churches and ministries worldwide that the Lord is using to stand against the tide of evil and proclaim the hope of the gospel.  However, we must also recognise that not all of the church body is fearless - there a good many who are fainting.

‘God Forbid That I Should Glory’: Billy Graham Was About Jesus — First And Last

It is appropriate, then, that the statue reflects more than just the image of a man. It presents him in the context of his high calling. In it, Billy stands preaching with an open Bible in one hand as the other points to a passage in that Bible.
