WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Wednesday released the following statement regarding his no vote on the 3-day Continuing Resolution:

“The President is talking about income inequality in America, but there is no greater gap than between the politicians in Washington who spend with abandon and the American people who are struggling to make ends meet and are forced to pay for it all. Today’s vote on the Continuing Resolution moves us one step closer to the 1,500-page, $1 trillion omnibus bill that does nothing to restore economic growth, stop Obamacare, or fix our spending problem. If anyone wants to know why the nation is in fiscal trouble, look no further than the massive omnibus bill being jammed through Congress currently.”
