Sen. Ted Cruz (R): I Don't Trust Republicans

Especially with debt and spending


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Wednesday made it crystal clear that he is not in Washington, D.C. to play ball with politicians in either party, especially when it comes to the nation's out of control debt. In fact, he reveled that he doesn't trust Republicans or Democrats to do the right thing.

Cruz objects to starting House-Senate budget negations unless Democrats take a debt limit increase off the table. He reiterated his stance on Wednesday, saying he is not willing to put blind trust in his own party.
