Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) argued that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wasn’t like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) because “she’s not…say[ing] ‘shut down the government or don’t fund things if I don’t get my way'” on Sunday’s “State of the Union” on CNN.
“The soul of the Democratic Party is economic issues and I think on economic issues, we are united and Elizabeth Warren is, even if people don’t agree with her, she’s constructive. She’s not like Ted Cruz, and say[ing] ”shut down the government or don’t fund things if I don’t get my way.’ She’s working hard to move things in her direction and that’s a good thing. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, people say he’s a great political mover and shaker, he made huge mistakes yesterday” he stated.
