Cruz Slams Debt Deal: My Kids 'Don't Have $85 Billion Laying Around in Their Rooms'

Conservatives on the hill are not happy with the rushed debt deal that passed Congress Thursday. By a tally of 64-35, the 2-year agreement will raise the debt ceiling and raise spending caps to the tune of $85 billion. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that is unacceptable and a betrayal to American families.


“What are the terms of this budget deal? Well, in short, what the House of Representatives has passed and what the senate is expected to pass shortly is a bill that adds $85 billion in spending increases…$85 billion in spending increases…$85 billion to our national debt…85 billion to your children and my children that they’re somehow expected to pay. I don’t know about your kids, but my girls don’t have $85 billion laying around in their rooms…”

An incensed Cruz praised Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a "very effective Democratic leader." 

Other small government conservatives like Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) intended to filibuster the deal before it quickly passed the Senate. 

You can watch the Cruz's entire speech below.
