Ted Cruz Says He Didn't Want To Throw Colleagues Under the Bus Over Debt Ceiling Vote

Chose not to push for 60-vote threshold


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Wednesday said that he did want to throw any of his colleagues under the bus by forcing a 60-vote threshold on a bill to raise the debt ceiling earlier this month. 

Cruz said in a CNN interview that he heard the criticism from colleagues over the tactics, but the possible 2016 White House contender was unrepentant.
