As most of you know by now Harry Reid exercised the so-called ‘nuclear option’ today, clearing the way for Obama to stack the courts with liberal judges. Ted Cruz says Harry Reid broke his promise to not exercise the nuclear option just as Obama broke his promise that Americans could keep their health care:
“Today’s unfortunate vote damaged the Senate and was designed to try to change the topic from the millions of Americans losing their jobs and their healthcare because of Obamacare. Just like President Obama promised, ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it,’ so too Harry Reid repeatedly promised he would not use the ‘nuclear option’ to change the Senate rules. Both, sadly, ignored their promises and broke their word. And, in yet another partisan abuse of power, the Democrats are now shamelessly working to pack the DC Circuit, so that President Obama’s lawless disregard of our statutes and Constitution will not be held to account by an impartial judiciary.”
