Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: The “Fiscal Cliff” Deal was a “Lousy Deal” that is Going to Hurt America; Says GOP Must be “Willing” to Shut the Government Down over Debt-Ceiling Battle – Video 1/3/13
Here is video of newly sworn-in U.S. Senator Ted Cruz on with CNBC’s Larry Kudlow yesterday, where he said the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal was a “lousy deal” that is going to “hurt America.” Cruz said the fact it raises taxes on many business owners, and has no spending cuts actually makes the situation worse instead of better. Cruz said he would have voted against it.
On the Debt-Ceiling battle, Cruz says Republicans need to be willing to shut the Government down if Obama is unwilling to make serious spending cuts in entitlements – the major driver of the nation’s debt.
