WATCH: Senator Cruz Praises Two Democrats For Standing Up To Their “Crazy Party”

It’s important to remember that President Joe Biden and the Democrats haven’t even been in power for an entire year and yet America is facing disasters on all fronts. From the Southern border crisis to the withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Biden can’t seem to succeed at the simplest of tasks. And when it comes to his own party, the Democrats are quickly turning on each other as the liberal left continues to push false narratives and massive spending bills that will do nothing but cripple America. 

On Sunday, Senator Ted Cruz was speaking with host Maria Bartiromo when he surprised both the host and viewers by praising the Democrats. Well, just two Democrats in particular. Cruz applauded Senators Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia for standing up to the Democratic party for trying to pass the disastrous $3.5T spending bill. 

Talking about the bill, Cruz said, “This is the Bernie Sanders budget. Bernie Sanders is a wide-eyed and admitted socialist. He says this is the most transformational bill in a generation. He means that it; it is trillions in spending. It is trillions in new taxes. It is the Green New Deal, it is — everyone who pays taxes in America will see their taxes go up under this massive proposal. Individual taxes are going up, corporate taxes are going up, small business taxes are going up, capital gains taxes are going up, the death tax is going up, seniors are getting hammered, farmers, ranchers, small businesses; it is disastrous.”

He added, “Whether it passes or not will depend on 50 Democrats in the Senate. Do they get Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to go along? I can tell you Chuck Schumer is putting a world of hurt and pressure on the two of them. I hope they stand their ground, that they have demonstrated some real courage so far, standing up to the crazies in their party.”

Knowing how the political game works, Cruz went on to say that Biden already knows his vaccine mandate will fail, but that’s the plan.“They want to change the topic from Afghanistan. It’s why Biden issued this completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate, because he wanted to change the topic from the disaster in Afghanistan. The vaccine mandate is going to be struck down in court. They know that, but the president is defying the law because he wanted the press to start defending him and stop talking about the disasters in Afghanistan. And he’s counting on a bunch of big businesses in particular, forcing their employees to comply before the matter is ever adjudicated. And before the order is struck down.”
