The White House Twitter account summoned Ted Cruz after praising a new highway project he had already voted against.
It appears that the US senator from Texas was trying to get credit for the “Ports to Plains” project, which led to the White House’s provocation of the Republican politician.
“The Interport Highway will extend into the Plains from Laredo all the way to North Dakota and into Canada. This project will create jobs for Texas and millions of dollars for the state. A great bipartisan victory!” Mr. Cruz tweeted.
In response, the White House simply tweeted, “Senator Cruz voted against this.”
according to rolling rock magazine, the project was funded by the massive $1.5 trillion appropriations bill, which President Biden signed into law on March 15.
A few days ago, the US Senate approved Bill 68-31. And while Senator John Cornyn of Texas voted for it, Senator Cruz did not.
Cruz has been an outspoken supporter of the project, but his spokesperson said rolling rock The bill he voted against was a “Democrats’ spending spree that has contributed to an economic slump for American families.”
Senator Dave Vasquez’s press secretary added: “It could have easily and unanimously passed the Senate as a separate bill, but it was thrown in the blanket package full of pork that Democrats shook up through Congress.”
