Sen. Ted Cruz knows that the best way to instill dignity in Americans is to have them gainfully employed.
No matter what a person’s political persuasion, being able to work, feed yourself, put a roof over your head, and take care of your family is paramount.
But thanks to widespread coronavirus shutdowns — the first time in our history we quarantined well people — tens of millions of Americans remain unemployed.
And Democrats like Nancy Pelosi want to keep them that way and actually turn them into wards of the state.
So they’ll vote for more Democrats.
The Texas Republican knows that’s a lousy idea for an industrious nation like ‘Merica.
As lawmakers struggle to find common priorities for the next stimulus package, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for keeping businesses and schools closed instead of prioritizing getting Americans back to work and off government assistance.
Cruz went further to say he does not even agree with the provision in the GOP stimulus bill which would continue to fund the additional $600 per month unemployment benefits.
'At the same time, we have an absolute economic catastrophe: We have over 44 million Americans that have lost their job. And we have got to get America back to work,' Cruz told CBS's 'Face the Nation' on Sunday.
'Unfortunately, I just listened to your interview with Speaker Pelosi, her objectives are focused on neither of those. Her objectives are shoveling cash at the problem and shutting America down … You look at the $3 trillion bill she's trying to push. It's just shoveling money to her friends and not actually solving the problem,' Cruz said.
Cruz said many small businesses in Texas are having a problem getting employees to come back to work because they are making more on unemployment than when they were working, sometimes twice as much. Cruz said he is opposed to throwing trillions more at the problem but instead wants to focus on 'recovery.'
'We ought to be passing a recovery bill. Now, what's a recovery bill? A recovery bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the payroll tax which would give a pay raise to everyone in America who's working. That actually gets people back to work,' Cruz said.
Democrats are socialists and Marxists, nothing more. They want to destroy our country and they’re working on it every day. Creating more dependency is just one way they hope to destroy us.
