This is ridiculous.
Republican Senator Ted Cruz sounded off on Democrats after they passed their multi-billion dollar bill which passed through the Senate after Vice President Kamala Harris cast the tie-breaking vote.
According to Fox, Cruz fired off on Democrats and said the bill will “kill manufacturing jobs” and “hammer small businesses” and will increase the gas prices.
“The Democrats to are on the verge of ramming through what really is a terrible bill,” Cruz stated before the vote was passed.
Cruz went on to say that the bill “has billions in new taxes on U.S. oil and gas production.”
“We introduced amendments trying to take those new taxes out so all the Democrats say they’re worried and want to lower gas prices, they all just voted to raise gas taxes and to raise your price at the pump,” Cruz explained.
Cruz argued that Democrat Senators such as Raphael Warnock and Maggie Hassan were lying to the American people by claiming they wanted to lower gas prices because “they stood up and voted to raise the gas taxes, stick it to the producers, make our consumers pay more at the pump.”
“That’s the end result they want, and their voting record proves it,” Cruz said.
“Those IRS agents are designed to come after you,” Cruz warned. “They’re not designed to come after the billionaires and the big corporations, they’re designed to come after small businesses and working families across this country.”
“The Democrats are making the IRS bigger than the Pentagon plus the Department of State plus the FBI plus the Border Patrol combined,” he said. “This is a massive power grab.”
