Senators Lindsey Graham (R- SC) and Ted Cruz (R- TX) ripped Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R- KY) for the deal he offered Democrats on raising the debt ceiling.
Senate leaders reached a deal Thursday to raise the debt ceiling through December, after a proposal Wednesday from McConnell to the Democrats.
Both Cruz and Graham openly criticized McConnell and accused him of folding.
Sen. Ted Cruz says McConnell’s strategy to offer Dems a short-term debt ceiling deal was a “serious mistake.”
Said “of course” he views it as McConnell folding, & said “yes” he was surprised by it.
Thinks “Democratic threats to destroy the filibuster caused him to give in.”
