Cruz: GOP Senators Yelled at Me for Supporting Gun Filibuster (full article)By Eliana Johnson
Texas senator Ted Cruz on Friday indicated that the battle among GOP Senators over gun control was so fierce that, at several points during the debate, some of his Republican colleagues yelled at him “at the top of their lungs.”
“We’ve had probably five or six lunches with a bunch of Republican senators standing up and looking at Rand [Paul] and Mike [Lee] and me and yelling at us at the top of their lungs, I mean, really upset. And they said ‘Look, why did you do this? As a result of what you did, when I go home, my constituents are yelling at me that I have to stand on principle.’
Let’s pause a minute to imagine if EVERY DAY our “representatives” stood on principle. Think about it – these senators are upset they have to hold to the principles they PROMISED us they would stand on, representing OUR values and beliefs – as a “representative” is ELECTED to do.
OR is what they promised us, for our votes and to our face – all a LIE?
So we’re clear – every RINO better wake up and demonstrate a new dedication to the sanctity of our Constitution and Bill of Rights – or they must be replaced! We know where to start – there were only 3 senators who signed the letter! Where do the other senators STAND and will they sign the letter TODAY?
I sure want to know – it is a fair question, yes?
Thank you Senator Cruz, Senator Paul & Senator Lee.
Making our voices heard does make a difference!
