Winning chamber was useless :
From his Twitter Acct:
The American people were told: If only we get a Republican majority in the Senate and retire Harry Reid, then things will be different.
We need to ask ourselves if this is why we are in the majority: To make deals with Democrats to reauthorize cronyism & pass a spending bill
~ Ted Cruz
From the WT today:
Sen. Ted Cruz brazenly tore into his own party’s leaders (TrumpedIt)Friday, saying Republican rule in the Senate is hardly different than it was under Democrats, as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to appease both parties with a compromise on the highway bill.
The leader lied to him when he said there wasn’t pact in the works to revive the federal Export-Import Bank, an agency that finances the sale of U.S. goods overseas and lapsed June 30.
“The majority leader looked at me and said there is no deal there is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal. Like St. Peter, he said it three times,” Mr. Cruz said, referring to an episode at a party luncheon after lawmakers debated President Obama’s trade agenda.

From Ted’s Twitter:
Then-Senator Barack Obama described Ex-Im as an example of corporate welfare. Now that he’s President, corporate welfare sounds pretty good.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for filing an amendment to the highway funding bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank and preventing senators from offering additional amendments by filling the amendment tree. He calls Senator McConnell’s actions “procedural abuse” and compares his tactics to those of now-Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when he was majority leader.
The #WashingtonCartel hard at work. #EndExIm
Senator Harry Reid @SenatorReid
I commend @SenateMajLdr for setting up a vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank. This bill is critically important for U.S. businesses.
