If it's the Constitution as it stands Mr.Cruz has already failed twiced, perhaphs even three times.
1. the second amendment clearly refers to the right to bear POWDER and BALL muskets, single shot and or revolvers, also single shot.
It can in no way be superimposed to justify a person armed with weapons which could've have taken out a pre-revolutionary war militia in minutes and of course a whole clasroom of children.
2. the Constitution requires that congress PAY all foreign and domestic debts, there are no addendums in the amendment to suggest that this law was optional. There has been talk as to whether Social Security should be paid if in fact, republicans like Cruz choose to defy their Constitutional obligation to do so. Keep in mind that everytime a paycheck was cut, a person contributed as one would to a stock a liability to the US of A. The liabilty comes into play when a person collects SS disability, the very reason for the creation of SS and the annuities a person collects if in fact they retire at 65?
A liabilty in any business is an obligation, debt that must be paid, like an unused deposit must be returned.
3. when Mr.Cruz and the rest of the reps swore to serve our nation, that swearing precludes any oath he took to another entity, Grover Norquist. Not at any time should a entity other than the US odf A dictate Mr. Cruz tax policy. One can not serve two masters.
Finally much weight has been put onto the tea party's(who stand on not defending the constitution) darling, Mr.Cruz.
Does the tea party, republicans, or Mr. Cruz honestly believe Americans of Mexican descent or any othe hispanic who did not get special wet foot dry foot laws made for them to support him?
I hardly think so.
Cubans have always had a sweet little deal that is contrary to our Constitution considering it prefers Cubans with this wet foot dry foot law and disregards any other hispanic people who may have immigrated here illegally for much better reasons than cited for the Cuban deal.
Mr. Cruz doesn't have to feel lonely, Mr. Rubio is in the same boat with him, but never fear, our nation prefers Cubans just get your feet on dry ground.
