TED CRUZ’S VOTING RECORD PROVES THAT, AFTER THIS NOVEMBER’S PRESIDENTIAL AND CONGRESSIONAL LANDSLIDE, HE WILL BE A WISE STEWARD OF OUR TAX DOLLARS!!!!:
Sen. Ted Cruz wants relief — not pork.
The Republican presidential hopeful, who on Wednesday called for federal aid in response to devastating floods in his home state of Texas, excused himself for opposing similar help in the wake of Hurricane Sandy because, he claimed, a 2013 bill that included funding for that disaster was bloated.
“It wasn’t emergency spending and simply they used it as a cynical excuse to spend on matters that were not providing relief for disasters,” the conservative told the Daily News, blaming Democrats and Republicans alike for beefing up relief aid after the October 2012 storm slammed the Northeast.
“What was sad was to see members of Congress — both Democrats and Republicans — exploit a terrible natural disaster by using it to force through their spending priorities on matters that had absolutely nothing to do with that disaster,” Cruz added.
Sandy wreaked havoc throughout the Northeast, with the Red Cross reporting 117 storm-related deaths.
More than 20 people have been reported killed by the floods that struck Texas over Memorial Day weekend.
