White House slams Ted Cruz for touting infrastructure project he voted against

Source: The Hill

The White House on Wednesday took to Twitter to slam Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for highlighting his work advocating for a highway project he ultimately voted against in March.

Cruz and Sen. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) introduced a bipartisan amendment to an omnibus bill passed earlier this year that designated part of the Ports-to-Plains Corridor as a future addition to the nation’s interstate highway system.

The Texas Republican supported the amendment but ultimately voted against the sweeping $1.5 trillion omnibus spending package when the Senate voted on the legislation in full.

“Senator Cruz voted against this,” the White House tweeted on Wednesday afternoon in response to a local television interview Cruz participated in, where he touted the project.

1. Club Ted can always claim he meant Canada or Cuba

Both of those governments did more for their country's infrastructure over the past 5 years, than Cheeto did for his.

14. A real POS could fertilize plants

Cruz is so toxic he would probably kill anything that tries to grow in the vicinity of his grave

17. No. The nearest water is the Rio Grande and it is a couple hundred miles from the coast

Port? I don't think so.

15. DO NOTHING TED

I hope they have billboards erected in Texas with that moniker.


A rival primary opponent insults his wife's appearance....Do Nothing Ted subordinates himself to the bully.

Power grid outage......Do Nothing Ted tries to escape to Mexico

Record number of school shootings and children murdered in his State.....Do Nothing Ted sends his thoughts and prayers

A much needed infrastructure bill is passed helping his State....Do Nothing Ted votes against it...then demands praise for it getting done.

19. So pathetic.

They are so dishonest, it condones dishonesty for their voters. I find this hurtful, and it makes me feel there's no defeating them, when there are no moral principles to look up to, what does that do to our country? They take terrible advantage of their power over the low educated, and average Joe's that want their life to be more than what it is, and these evil politics give it to them. Use hate, fear and division, with plenty of lies and religion, media domination....I could go on. What a world.
