‘With this administration, cruelty is the point’

WASHINGTON, DC – US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this week joined Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” to discuss the Biden administration’s inflation crisis caused by reckless spending by Democrats, the administration’s surrender to China and a new radical candidate Biden, Saule Omarova. Read highlights from Senator Cruz’s interview below.
On reckless spending by Congressional Democrats and Biden’s inflationary crisis, Senator Cruz said:
âThe trillions that are spent, the trillions of debt that accumulates, it’s historic and not in a good way. [â¦] We are seeing a surge in inflation. We saw gas lines. We have seen a crisis in the Middle East. We have seen hostages, we have seen surrenders in this case, and Afghanistan. All of these problems recur. It turns out that cause and effect still work, that when you spend billions of dollars, you cause inflation. And you know what’s amazing about this? Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the rest of the administration, they don’t care. You played the music video a while ago of Jen Psaki laughing at inflation and saying, “Well, that’s what we really want.” They want you to not be able to fill up your car with gas, they want your electric bill to be higher, they want your heating bill to be higher–and cruelty, of course, does not impact them, the Democratic elites will always fly in their private planes wherever they go. And [to] the workers, they just say, ‘Let them eat cake.’ It is really cruel. What happens, after spending $ 1.9 trillion on a so-called COVID relief bill that was not COVID aid, and now spending $ 1.2 trillion on a so-called bill infrastructure, much of which is not infrastructure, so now they want to move on to Bernie Sanders’ socialist budget. That was the original budget of $ 3.5 trillion. So it was actually closer to $ 5.5 [trillion] if you have marked it honestly. At the moment, they are fighting with Joe Manchin and Kirsten Sinema. They have 48 Democrats ready to bankrupt the country completely and put billions of dollars in taxes on the American people. And they have two Democrats who say at least put the brakes on, slow down. All Republicans oppose this mess because the American people are paying the price. And sadly, we’ll have to see if they can get 50 Democrats to agree to do a lot more damage and push inflation up even more.
“They predict it will be the most expensive Thanksgiving we’ve ever had because we’ve seen food prices go up. But you know the hypocrisy is striking that [with] this administration, cruelty is the point. “
Regarding President Biden’s new radical candidate for the post of Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova, Senator Cruz said:
âThe banking regulator they put forward is really a radical. She literally trained in the Soviet Union. She has advocated for the nationalization of the banks, for the federal government to take control of all banks in America, and she wants to bankrupt businesses across the country. She wants to bankrupt energy companies. She wants to put millions of Americans out of work. It should be easy, in any sane world it should be rejected-100 [to] nothing. The question comes down to: Are there a Democrats or two who will have the courage to step out of the herd and say no to Joe Biden? They did it twice in ten months on a candidate. We’ll see if it’s the third. I hope so. He’s a dangerous candidate.“
On President Biden’s surrender and his administration to China, Senator Cruz said:
“One of the most troubling aspects of the past ten months has been Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ willingness to surrender to China. So, you know, you’re asking, “Will Biden stand up to Xi?” [Jinping]? Will he bring up and insist on China’s guilt for the COVID pandemic, for the Wuhan virus and the Wuhan laboratory from which this virus most likely escaped? ‘ I think the chances of that happening are next to zero, as its model with almost every enemy on Earth, be it Russia, North Korea, Iran, the Taliban, or China, Joe Biden’s model is exactly like Jimmy Carter’s: it’s a weakness. It is appeasement. He thinks that if you crawl and give them whatever they want, they’ll go away and be nice. He doesn’t understand that it makes bullies more aggressive. One of the challenges is that the Democratic Party is now structurally pro-China, its main supporters, big business, big tech, big Hollywood, big universities are all in bed with China.. “
