Newsflash: Ted Cruz did one thing deeply dishonest (and xenophobic) within the Senate at this time



Durbin immediately debunks Cruz’s amendment that stimulus money shouldn’t go to undocumented immigrants – something that doesn’t happen anyway

For non-tweeters:

CRUZ: “This amendment, like the one we just voted on through Senator Cassidy and me, says that stimulus controls should not go to illegal aliens in this country. The question the American people must answer is, should your money, tax money, should be sent to every illegal alien in America. This amendment states that stimulus checks should not be directed only to American citizens or to those who are lawfully present. Now, Democrats may say their language allows it, but they know the IRS will treat someone who has been illegally present in the United States for 31 days in the past year as a resident alien. This corrects this and ensures that illegal aliens do not qualify for tax financed economic reviews. “

Right. Rapists (both confirmed and alleged) should not be given stimulus checks. They should get seats in the Supreme Court and be protected from their victims by the immunity of the president.

That too …

SEN. DICK DURBIN: “Mr. President, what the Texas Senator said is simply wrong. Not correct. Let me be clear Undocumented immigrants do not have a Social Security number and cannot qualify for stimulus relief checks. And in case you didn’t notice, they didn’t qualify back in December when 92 of us voted for this measure, and they didn’t qualify for the American bailout plan. Nothing has changed. And if you stand up there and say the opposite, all you have to do is get people upset about something that is not true. “

CRUZ: “Will the Senator give in on a question?”

DURBIN: No, I won’t. It’s not true and we know what’s going on here. They want to be able to make speeches saying the checks are going to undocumented people. In the circumstances where one parent … gets the check for the child, it is. But no money goes to undocumented people under the American rescue plan. “

Oh my god, that asshole!

Ted Cruz is man’s Kirkland Jeans. Seriously, is there anyone worse? Different from this orange guy?

Let’s scapegoat and demonize some of the most hardworking and vulnerable people in the world a little bit more. Why not? Honestly, he’s almost worse than Trump. Trump’s lies were like popcorn farts. Uncomfortable, but easy enough to wave away. Cruz’s lies leave a viscous mud. They’re not as common as the ex-man’s (or maybe I just haven’t been watching him long enough), but they seem somewhat coarser. Maybe it’s his aristocratic demeanor.

Whatever it is … Barf-o-Rama, dude.

Of course Cruz wanted his little soundbite in the Senate so that he could get him between the voluminous “Cancún Cruz ”ads. Hopefully Texas voters are wise to his nonsense by now. However, if that cold snapshot didn’t wake her, I’m not sure what will.
