Cruz plans resolution showcasing his fealty to a foreign power

Source: The Hill

“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he plans to introduce a resolution supporting arms sales to Israel, following efforts by progressive Democrats to block the transactions. … Cruz’s intent to introduce the resolution comes after progressives, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), mounted an effort last week to block a $735 million arms sales to Israel following [Benjamin Netanyahu’s “try to save my political skin with a war” gambit] that ended with a ceasefire on Thursday. Sanders’s effort, however, is unlikely to gain traction in the upper chamber because of a lack of support among his colleagues. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is leading a similar campaign in the House. … Cruz said on Fox News that his resolution will illustrate if lawmakers are willing to ‘support Israel’ or ‘sashay up to the anti-Israel left.'” (05/23/21)
