Cruz: GOP Has Responsibility to Stop Exec Amnesty

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued “it will be incumbent” on the GOP to stop any executive amnesty by President Obama if the Republicans re-take the Senate on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

When Cruz was asked if the GOP has the authority to block executive amnesty, Cruz declared they “absolutely” did. And “it will be incumbent if we have a majority for Republicans to lead, for us to step up and do something about it…I hope and believe that come January of next year, with a Republican majority in the House and the Senate, we will see strong, bold leadership.”

Cruz added, “I think we are on the verge of an historic Election Night next Tuesday. I think Republicans are going to re-take the US Senate. I think we’re going to retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader.”

He also slammed the media for ignoring comments made by Democratic candidate Vincent Sheheen against South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R), saying “The Democratic nominee for governor in South Carolina used a misogynist, sexist insult for your and my friend Nikki Haley…you can see this Democrat running for governor laughing about it with the crowd and then embracing it, embracing, you know, if this were a Republican, if this were Todd Aiken, it would lead the news on every channel across the country [yet] to have a Democrat use a nasty personal misogynist insult, and yet the mainstream yawns and ignores it.”
