Ted Cruz Calls Out Obama’s Attempt to Expand Federal Power
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz said Thursday that the Obama administration “knows virtually no bounds” in its push to continue to expand the role of federal government.
From interfering with a church’s selection of its own ministers to attaching GPS’s to vehicles without having any cause, Cruz’s report gives six examples in which the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously rejected the Obama administration’s attempts to increase the power of the federal government.
Cruz, 47, has made a habit of making national headlines in his first four months in office and has gained the reputation as a stubborn, yet steadfast, Republican voice in the Democrat-controlled senate.
Democrats have characterized his style to McCarthyism. He voted against the Hurricane Sandy relief bill and has vigorously challenged the nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
Below are the six examples noted in the Cruz report in which the U.S. Supreme Court denied attempts by the Obama administration to expand federal government power.
