Ted Cruz Issues Concerning Statement About Biden

In a show of unity and a call for President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to cave to their demands, more than a dozen Republican senators, led by Senator Rick Scott of Florida, held a press conference Wednesday to tout the House GOP debt limit bill passed last week.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas took the podium and blasted Biden, accusing him of lackingmental faculties to negotiate with Republicans and claiming he has been replaced byradical children among the White House staff.

President Joe Biden needs to do the same thing, Cruz said, referring to Bidens efforts in 2011 as vice president to avert a neardefault.And I‘ll say, sadly, the reason he hasn‘t so far, I believe, is because his mental faculties are too diminished right now to do what he did in 2011, to sit down and actually work together on a solution to the problems.

Cruz then lauded the president for finally inviting Congressional leaders to the White House for a May 9 meeting to discuss the debt, which all four have accepted.

I will say it is a major victory for America that the day before yesterday, Biden finally blinked and said,Okay, I‘ll sit down and talk.’ That‘s the first step. Now the second step is, let‘s solve the problem, Cruz said.

The House Republican bill aims to raise the debt limit through March 2024 or by $1.5 trillion whichever benchmark is hit first. It would also reduce federal spending back to 2022 levels, which is about $140 billion to $180 billion less than this years.

Biden and Senate Democrats, however, have attacked the bill, claiming it would defund valuable federal programs. They have insisted on aclean debt ceiling increase with no conditions something most Republicans said they would oppose.

The moment of truth is here, said Senator Scott.President Biden and the Senate must decide whether they will join us in avoiding default and working towards fiscal responsibility, or if they will continue to play politics and push us to the brink of default. Now is not the time for games, Scott continued. Now is the time for action.

Whether Biden and Senate Democrats will budge on the issue remains to be seen. But with the deadline rapidly approaching, Republicans are hoping their show of unity will be enough to push the president to the negotiating table.
