Senator Ted Cruz, a staunch conservative and representative of Texan pride, has launched a scathing attack on the Biden administration’s proposed $6.8 trillion budget for the 2024 fiscal year. In a tweet that leaves no room for misinterpretation, Cruz asserted that “The sad truth: The socialists are in charge of the White House,” referencing his earlier interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

During his appearance on Hannity’s show, Cruz elaborated on his position, arguing that the people that Joe Biden has surrounded himself with “have a very simple approach to everything, they want to spend money they don’t have, they want to raise taxes on you.”

Cruz paints a bleak picture of the consequences of the proposed budget, highlighting that it would burden the American people with a debt of $50 trillion dollars, an amount that would be unsustainable and have disastrous effects on the nation’s economy. In Cruz’s view, White House officials seem unconcerned about the national debt because they believe that they “can just keep printing money and unleashing inflation and borrowing money from China.”
Moreover, Cruz criticizes the budget for having misplaced priorities that reflect the Biden administration’s extreme leftist agenda. Cruz pointed out that instead of allocating funds to issues that genuinely affect the American people, such as addressing the fentanyl crisis, and providing funds to secure the southern border, the budget prioritizes issues like climate, environmental justice, and transgender rights. In Cruz’s opinion, this demonstrates that President Biden is more interested in catering to his far-left base instead of addressing critical issues.
Cruz made it clear that he perceives the budget as a “political document” that has “0.0 percent” chance of becoming law, given the GOP’s control of the House. Cruz is more than ready to push back on a budget that he sees as a transparent attempt to appease far-left activists’ interests at the expense of the nation’s welfare. As far as Cruz is concerned, this budget is a blueprint for disaster.
