GOP Leadership Now Furious at This Candidate…


On July 24, 2015, Ted Cruz gave a speech on the floor of the senate in which he accused McConnell of making a promise behind closed doors, then promptly breaking that promise in public:

“I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie…What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that, not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie…We now know that when the majority leader looks us in the eye and makes a commitment, he is willing to say things he knows are false.”

Senators were apoplectic. Cruz broke the rules–literally. Senate rule XIX, part two states:

“No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”
