Ted Cruz: Democrats would rather play political games than be honest with their constituents
Senator Ted cruz, R-Texas, joined “Hannity” on Wednesday, stressing that the United States should never default on its debt and tear up the Democrats’ “reckless” agenda to push through more social spending programs with their “massive” debt.
WHITE HOUSE WARNS NOT TO INCREASE DEBT LIMIT WILL THREAT US NATIONAL SECURITY AND MILITARY FAMILIES
TED CRUZ: Again, Republicans are urged to agree to lower the threshold. And all because Chuck Schumer plays political games. Right now, Democrats have both houses of Congress in the White House. They can raise the debt ceiling. But Schumer doesn’t want to, because if they increase it with just Democratic votes and they actually have to be honest with the voters and say, “Yes, we are adding billions in debt to our children and grandchildren.” .
Instead, they want to play a game that forces Republicans to bear their massive debt and reckless spending. Schumer is the one who threatens to default on payment. Biden is the one threatening debt default. It is reckless. We should never, ever default on debt.
And by the way, for years I have supported a law called the Full Faith and Credit Act which will in no way say that the United States will never default on its debt. If the debt ceiling is not raised, we will continue to pay the interest on our debt and it will be the major spending programs of the left government that will be reduced instead. But Democrats are blocking it because they want to threaten a debt default to push through more spending programs.
