Sen. Ted Cruz: SHOVELING CASH AT THE PROBLEM AND SHUTTING AMERICA DOWN
Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday while taking aim at Democratic position on Corona virus relief legislation reiterated his opposition to an extension of a boost of jobless benefits on further aid to the those affected by the pandemic.
The conservative Texas Republican in an interview with CBS “Face the Nation” added that he still opposes an emerging GOP package set to be introduced by senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R_ky) on Monday, which would scale back the $600 benefit to compensate out of work Americans for the percentage of their lost wages.
Sen. Ted Cruz saved much of his criticism for a $3 trillion House Democratic package passed in may, which he said is “not actually solving the problem”.
“Her objectives are shoveling cash at the problem and shutting America down” Cruz said of House speaker Nancy pelosi.
“The only objectives Democrats have is to defeat Donald Trump, and they’ve cynically decided the best way to defeat Donald Trump is to shut down every business in America” Cruz added. “Nancy pelosi talks about working men and women. What she’s proposing is keeping working men and Women from working.
Cruz blamed the payments for making it harder for small businesses to hire back workers and also argued that pandemic legislation should include measures such as a payroll tax act, which president Trump had passed before.
“We ought to be passing a recovering bill instead of just shoveling trillions out the door”. Cruz said. “A recovering bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small so that people can go back to work. A recovering bill would suspend the payroll tax, which would give a pay raise to everyone in America who’s working”.
