Cruz: Obama 'Doubled Down on Same Failed Policies of Last 6 Years'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address “really disappointing” tonight on “The Kelly File.”
Cruz charged Obama with not listening to the voters who are hurting right now.
“Instead he just doubled down on the same failed policies of the last six years,” Cruz said.
Under Obama, Cruz said that the top 1 percent “have gotten fat and happy,” but working men and women “are finding it just harder to make ends meet.”
Cruz said that Obama “had rhetoric of inclusion” in his speech in between his veto threats. The Texas senator said that he believes Obama’s only interest in working with Republicans is perhaps on free trade.
Cruz also criticized Obama’s negotiation strategy with Iran, saying that he’s making it more likely for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.
He called on Congress to lead, saying that Obama has not.
