Cruz: Obama Intentionally Did Not Pass Immigration so to Use it as a ‘Partisan Cudgel’

Wednesday on Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued President Barack Obama is using immigration reform as a “partisan cudgel.”

Cruz said, “What President Obama the Senate Democrats have done however as they focused on the question you’re asking the focused on the most partisan divisive elements because I believe their objective is not pass a bill but rather to have what happened, happen exactly as it did to force a bad bill through the Senate that they knew would never pass the House Representative because they want to use it as a partisan cudgel in 2014 and 2016.”

“When Democrats controlled both houses of Congress they didn’t pass immigration reform because  they didn’t want to,” he added. “If you want to pass a bill the way you do is focus on areas of agreement not engage in partisan warfare like President Obama The Democrats are.”
