Thursday on MSNBC’s “Now with Alex Warner,” Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) blasted Republican leadership for letting “Speaker Cruz” “call the shots,” which caused a delay of the August recess, as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) battled over the bills details.

Van Hollen said, “It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today.” He added, “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.”
