Ted Cruz: Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid ‘arm in arm’ ‘not listening’

2016 GOP candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz said on Saturday that  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) political bedfellows: “arm-in-arm.”
Cruz reviewed how the pair’s collaboration is erasing the differences between Democrats and Republicans.
“Here’s the truth — Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid are arm-in-arm reauthorize the Export-Import Bank,” he told supporters at the RedState Gathering in Atlanta today.
“It’s not two parties, it is one party,” added Cruz. “The problem is they are not listening to us. We need to change it.”

“Republican leadership leads from behind every day,” Cruz said. “What exactly has this new Republican majority accomplished? In this case, our team is playing for the other side.”
“The way you change that is the grassroots holding us all accountable,” he added. “If we stand up together, the only force powerful enough to turn this country around is ‘We the People.’ ”
“There is a reason the energy and life is with conservatives this year,” he said. “Our country is in crisis. This is our time. The media and the Democrats love to tell us a conservative can’t win…Truth is not rhetoric. Dive down beyond the talking points and into the actual records.”
“With me, you know exactly what you’re going to get, and I’m going to do exactly what I told you I’m going to do,” Cruz said.
