At issue? President Obama’s executive amnesty. The two leading conservatives refused to let Obama’s unconstitutional actions venture on their merry way without a fight.
Just today, a federal judge ruled Obama’s actions were unconstitutional. But, of course, Sen. Harry Reid and his liberal friends will admit nothing of the sort. And most of them, as well as many Republicans, were whining all weekend about having to miss Christmas parties at home to work the weekend.
Sorry if the American people can’t muster up an ounce of sympathy for those complaining. Conservatives should be lauding Cruz and Lee for doing everything in their power to make this argument heard.
The lame duck congress is unfortunate for many reasons, but it boils down to this: The American people voted for a drastic change in leadership last month. It’s not okay for the losers to continue carrying out their failed policies — especially when conservatives have the opportunity to speak out.
The $1.1 trillion “CRomnibus” was irresponsible, full of unnecessary spending and plenty of issues unrelated to funding the government. At the end of the year, politicians get lazy — but not Cruz and Lee. They came to Washington for a reason — and it wasn’t to bow down to the status quo so they can make it home for the weekend Christmas party.
As former Senator Jim DeMint wrote: “There is absolutely zero debate within the Republican Party as to whether the President overstepped his constitutional authority or acted improperly.”
So why weren’t they backed by the entirety of the GOP? Now is the time to band together against the lawlessness represented by Obama’s amnesty — not criticize the guys making waves for the Left.
Republicans have a lot to prove in the next two years. With a starting point like this one, many conservatives are worried. But with leaders like Cruz and Lee standing up for the American people, there’s hope the majority will be heard and that valuable, long-term change will soon arise.
