Texas Senator Ted Cruz Seeks Federal Aid for Explosion After Voting Against Sandy Relief

tedcruzAnd the hypocrisy just keeps on coming….

Yesterday, I wrote about Governor Rick Perry and Texas House Representative Bill Flores seeking funds from President Obama for disaster relief after the explosion in West, Texas.

Normally this wouldn’t have been that big of a deal, except historically Perry has been extremely vocal against government spending (though he sure does enjoy taking it) and Mr. Flores himself voted against disaster relief following Hurricane Sandy.

Now it’s time for Texas Senator Ted Cruz to join the hypocrisy.  Today Ted Cruz asked President Obama for disaster assistance as well.

Which again wouldn’t be that big of a deal, except he also voted against the Hurricane Sandy disaster relief package.

In his short time in Congress Ted Cruz has shown to be, well—ridiculous.  Recently, Chuck Schumer laughed at Cruz on the Senate floor during his presentation against expanding background checks for gun purchases.  Despite not being able to provide any evidence for his lie that expanded background checks will lead to a national gun registry, he continued to push his conspiracy as Schumer pressed him to provide some kind of evidence—which he never did.

It’s not at all shocking that Ted Cruz is turning out to be this kind of U.S Senator.  At CPAC he said that he felt a large part of him winning election to the U.S Senate was because of the endorsement from—-Sarah Palin.

When you idolize Sarah Palin, someone who isn’t even liked by many Republicans, that says enough about what type of politician you will ultimately be.

For those who would like to tell Senator Cruz what you think about his hypocrisy, I encourage you to head here and give him a piece of your mind.

And if you don’t have time to contact the Senator now, don’t worry—I’m positive this won’t be my last article covering his blatant ignorance and hypocrisy.
