Ted Cruz continues to be one of the hardest working members in Congress.
In the last two weeks, president Trump has signed two bills into law from the Texas firebrand.
Previously, President Trump signed a bill sponsored by Cruz that authorized $19.5 billion in funding for NASA.
The second bill signed into law last Friday allowed states to expand the number of applicants that can be drug tested that receive unemployment benefits.
According to Dallasnews.com:
President Donald Trump on Friday signed legislation backed by two Texas Republicans that will allow states to expand the pool of applicants for unemployment benefits who can be drug tested.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rep. Kevin Brady of The Woodlands, nullifies a Labor Department rule that went into effect in September limiting drug tests to applicants who had a job that does regular drug screenings.
Under the previous administration, the Department of Labor undermined the ability of states to conduct drug testing in their programs as permitted by Congress. This rule was yet another example of executive overreach by the Obama administration, and I commend President Trump for signing this resolution into law.
Democrats often call Cruz an “obstructionist,” but all that really means is that he is creating legislation deeply rooted with conservative values.
Very few lawmakers still wake up every single day and fight for conservative principles like Ted Cruz.
During the 2016 presidential election, Heidi Cruz said: “politics to Ted is about getting things done for others.”
Two bills in two weeks. Looks like Cruz is making it very clear he wants to get a lot done this year.
We need principled conservatives to work with Trump now more than ever to ensure that we get this country back on track.
If we truly want to “drain the swamp,” we need conservatives like Ted Cruz on our team.
