Like their Democrat pals, the GOP establishment is putting the American people last.
They tried to throw floundering Democrats a lifeline with one infuriating betrayal.
And Ted Cruz went nuclear on the GOP establishment for trying to hand Joe Biden this victory.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his fellow Senate RINOs tried to ram through a fake border security bill.
The Senate border betrayal would have allowed more than 1.8 million illegal aliens to cross the border and be given work permits each year.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed McConnell and his fellow RINOs for helping Democrats in their efforts to keep the Senate and regain the House in November’s election with the fake border security bill.
“Senate Republican leadership has basically declared war on House Republicans,” Cruz said on his Verdict podcast. “And I had been standing up, as have a number of other conservatives making the case against this, and many of my Republican colleagues are getting really pissed off.”
Conservative Senators grilled Senate GOP leadership about why they were pushing a border bill that was dead on arrival in the House.
But according to Cruz, despite that fact, McConnell assured them it would somehow pass.
“Here’s really what’s accomplished: It is all about political messaging,” Cruz said. “This enables Chuck Schumer, it enables every Democrat running for reelection and enables Joe Biden to, number one, to not secure the border, to leave the crisis exactly as it is. But number two, to say, ‘Well, we wanted to secure the border, but the Republicans stopped us.’ This is all about giving political cover for Democrats.”
Biden has already started to blame former President Donald Trump and Republicans for the Biden border crisis, claiming that by not signing off on this border betrayal, they’re now somehow responsible for a crisis he and his fellow Democrats’ open borders agenda created.
Democrats are laughably claiming that they’re serious about tackling the Biden border crisis, but that Republican opposition to the fake border bill shows that the GOP somehow isn’t serious about governing.
“The reason [Senate Republican leadership] wants to do it is once they’ve passed it in the Senate, use it as a club to beat the crap out of House Republicans and to defeat the House Republican majority,” Cruz said. “It is literally Senate Republican leadership helping the Democrats in the House.”
Cruz said that RINOs ran to Democrats’ media allies to whine that conservative opposition to the bill was because they wanted to use the border as a political issue during the election.
But that was a lie that helped Democrats, according to Cruz.
“You are reading Chuck Schumer’s talking points,” Cruz explained. “And your lie will be used to reelect Democrats to the Senate and in the House. You’re simply being useful idiots. And sadly, they have no response to that; they just go back out and tell the reporters the same damn thing all over again.”
The fake border security bill would have allowed Biden to claim that he did something to tackle illegal immigration when the issue is hurting him in an election year.
RINOs gave Joe Biden another gift by using Democrats’ messaging after the bill was spiked.
