Sen. Ted Cruz denounces budget deal for not providing relief from ObamaCare

Republican Senate leaders today gave in to Democrat demands and media pressure to make a deal ending the government shutdown standoff that began on Oct. 1.  Agreeing to give the president the budget he demanded and then some, Sen. McConnell (R-Ken.) and Sen. Reid (D-Nev.) announced an accord that would raise the debt ceiling to allow another $1 trillion for discretionary spending to be borrowed in order to, according to Obama, “pay America’s debts.”

The effort to defund ObamaCare, or at the very least limit its impact on citizens who were not granted waivers by the president, was begun by Sen. Cruz who is one of the leading members of the Tea Party.  Both he and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) pushed Republican moderate Sen. McConnell into a contest with Obama who, over the course of the last two weeks, has labeled Republicans ‘terrorist hostage takers threatening to burn down America if Democrats didn’t sell them the deal they wanted.’  In an interview following the announcement, Cruz said;

“Unfortunately, once again it appears the Washington establishment is refusing to listen to the American people.  The deal that has been cut provides no relief to the millions of Americans who are hurting because of ObamaCare.  The deal that has been cut provides no relief to all the young people coming out of school who can’t find a job because of ObamaCare.  It provides no relief to all the single parents who have been forced into part-time work struggling to feed their kids on 29 hours a week.  It provides no relief to all the hard working families who are facing skyrocketing health insurance premiums.  And it provides no relief to all the seniors, to all the people with disabilities who are, right now, getting in the mail notification from the health insurance companies that they are losing their health insurance because of ObamaCare.”
