‘We Folded Like a Cheap Suit’: Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz Slam Mitch McConnell for ‘Lousy Deal’ on Debt Ceiling

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.”
