Ted Cruz Misses Audit The Fed Vote

in Politics by
   

Ted Cruz made a decision today which is sure to puzzle many conservatives and inflame liberty activists across the country, missing the vote on Senator Rand Paul’s Audit The Fed bill. Cruz is reported to be campaigning in New Hampshire today, opting to take his message to the voters in that state rather than vote on the Audit The Fed legislation. This follows a longstanding pattern of the Senator missing votes, though this one may prove to be more costly than any before it, as it threatens to undermine Cruz’s attempts to attract liberty minded supporters. Roll call vote posted below!

    This, in no way, is surprising. Everyone who supports Ted Cruz tries to tell me he is the most constutitional minded conservative. HOGWASH. Rand Paul is clearly the best candidate on just about every front. Why the hell can’t America wake up?

    • Brian Bertha

      Rand simply has not convinced enough people that hes the best choice its as simple as that its his job to sell his platform and positions. Not saying they arent good he just doesnt convince the masses and thats what you have to do to win not have all your loyal follows castigate the rest as stupid or uninformed.. His foreign policy is at odds with 60 years of the status quo does not mean hes wrong just that he hasnt convinced many hes right call me what you will but how can you refute my point

      “Everyone who supports Ted Cruz tries to tell me he is the most constutitional minded conservative.”

      Because he is.

      Rand Paul is so awesome that he managed to throw away his credibility by sucking up to the GOP leadership in Sen McConnell. but what did he get for it? Anything?

      Cruz decided to stand on principle, and that created enemies in the US Senate when Cruz pushed for defunding votes and to actually not give Obama a pass on the debt ceiling etc. Sen Rand Paul criticized NOT the leadership for how they mistreated Cruz, but Cruz for telling it like it is, rocking the boat, and not being a ‘team player’.

      That’s why Rand wont be at the debate and Sen Cruz is the leading constitutional conservative candidate right now. Rand chose to be co-opted to ‘get along’. Cruz chose to stick to his guns.

        Travis. You’re a one-man truth squad!
        Thanks you for doing what you do.

          I am from Kentucky. I am proud of TWO GROWN MEN being civil to each other meanwhile they don’t always have the same views and have to face to face lots and share the same location of offices. Being uncivil will not bring the person with different views to table wanting to work with you.. Its part of grow up.. Uncivil with the other people will go to other people to work with instead.. Ted Cruz will have a hard time to get across the party unless he stops being uncivil. Ted Cruz is an adult, not a teenager!!

          the proposals where enough desire ( chart as below) to war where as in Cruz vowed to be the debt cutter?? How can you be a debt cutter and go to war with pentagon debt at the same time? Possibility bring more civil wars or major WW3? Chance to bankrupt Pentagon with blank check debt!! The THIRD LARGEST DEBT IS PENTAGON after Medicare and Social Security. Also, Cruz made an excuse to say he has to sign up for Obamacare because of his wife’s leaving job after ranting against Obamacare.. The truth is the policy of Obamacare stated Congress DOES “NOT REQUIRED” to sign up for Obamacare!! Back in 90’s, Ted Cruz praised John Boehner on many things as he worked for him as his lawyer.. Later in years, Ted blasphemy against John Boehner for his position with working with Harry Reid.. John Boehner always been as RINO to begin with for decades.. What did Ted gained from that?? NOPE…I d rather not to vote for two- faced Cruz!! Possibility a Bush clone.. ( even worked for Bush Administration) And will not vote for anyone, but Rand Paul.

          I don’t vote in the name of Republican party.

          Cruz is at well-liked among Democrats as evidence. And how will Cruz get that at the general election?

          • TravisJSays

            Cruz is quite civil to others. He’s not attacked anyone else in the personal way that say Trump has, and he hasn’t gotten petty like even Rand did with his ‘canadian’ remarks.

            But Cruz didnt bend over like McConnell wants the GOP Senators to do.

          • Randall Garlington

            If your trying to play title for tat on liberty issues between Cruz and Paul you’re going to have a hard time winning that. Cruz has really turned against liberty with TPP and the Patriot Act. Missing the vote on the Fed and his neocon warmongering of late has shown me that he intends to win the nomination without the liberty groups and will simply do nothing about their concerns any longer as President or Senator.

          • TravisJSays

            You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.

            Cruz voted against TPA and the TPP has not come up yet, and Cruz supported the USA Freedom Act and has gotten attacked from the neo-cons and anti-civil-liberties guys like Trump over it. It’s not ‘warmongering’ to tell the truth about ISIS, they are at war with us and we cant be like Obama and pretend its not a threat. Cruz for one has said we dont have a dog in the Syrian civil war fight, so he’s not one to over-intervene.

            You can have another horse in the race, but you dont build up Rand by attacking Cruz unfairly. Good luck.

          • Randall Garlington

            My own facts? The facts are in the article posted on this very site about Ted’s top ten flip flops. It’s funny I thought it was a well accepted fact by now what Cruz did on Pacific trade. Your the only person I’ve seen trying to deny that. Even the Cruz supporters I know had never claimed he voted against it

          • TravisJSays

            TPA came up for a vote. Cruz voted against it on the final vote, and he did so because of the side deals and provisions that were in it. That’s reasonable, you base your vote on the bill itself. TPP has not come up for a vote yet.

          • Randall Garlington

            I’ll remember you Travis when Cruz votes for TPP touting how it really is free market trade after some further consideration. Rubio will vote for it too of course. This is how these things work. Cruz stakes out a strong position then has to be bargained off of it. It is how attorneys look at the world.

        How can Cruz to be a debt cutter while he has the proposals eager to go to war at the same time. The THIRD LARGEST DEBT after Medicare and Social Security is Pentagon!! Read Article 1 under the convention of U.S Constitution Section 8 Clause 10 to 12.- it states to raise and support armies, but NO appropriations of money to use no longer than TWO years.
        We are already at war for 15 yrs.. More civil wars and possibility WW3 one day.. Look at the chart by the foreign policy expert of Cato’s as below how much eager or desire to go to war and spend the money..

    • Reddwine

      Hogwash.

  • Robert Arco

    The Paulbot who wrote this as well as the comments show they have no clue as to what reality is in regard to this. The Fed represents the banking cartel and will not be touched until Cruz is president. So you can support 2% Paul all you want but reality is, bashing Ted Cruz does not get Paul elected.

    • Julie S

      What does it make Cruz a better president?? Is it makes him the better President because of connection to his wife’s connection to Goldman Sachs ( Federal Reserve friend’s) or because he’s a Harvard lawyer ( plenty of Lawyers in Congress, already enough of it) or does has the proposals where enough desire ( chart as below) to war where as in Cruz vowed to be the debt cutter?? How can you be a debt cutter and go to war with pentagon debt at the same time? Possibility bring more civil wars or major WW3? Chance to bankrupt Pentagon with blank check debt!!

    Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage
    Can’t make the same mistake this time
    We are the children, the last generation
    We are the ones they left behind
    And I wonder when we are ever gonna change it
    Living under the fear till nothing else remains

  • kaynash

    This was a important vote – Cruz should have voted on this one if for no other reason than to support the network he would be counting on if he carries on as a politician. It’s this sort of behavior that has more and more people not trust the career politicians running this year.

  • Tony

    Ted Cruz is a NEOCON

    • TravisJSays

      Dumb meme. His wife manages investment accounts and its an insulting smear to pretend there is any connection at all.

      Cruz has continued to be supportive of auditing the Fed so the claim is specious.

      “I strongly support auditing the Fed. Indeed, I was an
      original co-sponsor of Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill. Unfortunately, it
      was clear early on that yesterday’s vote wasn’t going to succeed (it
      fell 7 votes short). And, at the same time that the vote was scheduled, I
      had longstanding commitments to be in New Hampshire — for a Second
      Amendment rally, and a 1500- person State of the Union town hall. If my
      vote would have made a difference in it passing, I would have cancelled
      my campaign events to be there. Because the vote was not going to
      succeed, I honored my commitments to be with the men and women of New
      Hampshire.

      As President, I look forward to signing Audit the Fed legislation into law.” – Sen Ted Cruz

        Nothing is dumb about it if you’ve been watching closely.

    Does everyone here think ANY of these ” Conservatives ” or ” Libertarians ” can totally enact so narrow an agenda on the USA ?
    They ALL work within the Left/Right Matrix .
    Ann Rand Paul ( she was Pirerre Rothschild’s ( owner US Fed ) Mistress ,who backed her books ) can’t do it.
    That witch who lived on Social Security ,Rent Control Medicare ( which she opposed for everyone else YOU writings where the blue print for her sponsers in International Banking to OWN the world’s capital.
    That’s nobody but the 1 percent .

    .
    Canadian Ted Cruz, wife works for Rothschild’s front Goldman Sachs …the nasty palooka face is playing the GOP base card to little effect .
    The press is using him to cut down Mr.Trump whom the Left/Right ideological see saw ,want stopped .
