Ted Cruz is pissing off the ENTIRE U.S. Senate over Obama’s illegal immigration action!


It looks like the entire U.S. Senate is angry that Ted Cruz is forcing them to do their jobs, and they’re not to shy about saying so:

Ted Cruz took to Facebook to explain his actions:

While the Senate considers the CRomnibus spending bill, all we’ve done was simply request to hold a vote on a measure to stop President Obama’s amnesty. Instead, Majority Leader Harry Reid is holding a series of votes today for the sheer purpose of blocking that vote on Obama’s amnesty.

Harry Reid’s last act as Majority Leader is to, once again, act as an enabler for President Obama, by blocking this vote on the President’s amnesty. He is going to an embarrassing length to tie up the floor to obstruct debate and a vote on this issue because he knows amnesty is unpopular with the American people, and he doesn’t want the Democrats on the record as supporting it.

No one wants a government shutdown. We are only seeking a vote. As soon as the Majority Leader allows a vote on a measure to stop President Obama’s amnesty, we can and should move forward on this bill to fund the government. If he does not, then we will continue to insist upon regular order and use every tool at our disposal to ensure there is a vote.

Here’s an excerpt from Ted Cruz’s speech explaining why he’s demanding that Republicans stop Obama’s illegal immigration order now instead of later:

Some are angry that Cruz’s actions will allow Harry Reid to force a vote on some of Obama’s nominations:

Which allowed Chuck Schumer to tweet this trolling missive:
