Sen. Cruz: New Congress Can Be 'Most Productive' in 'Decades'

By    |   Friday, 20 Jan 2017 01:53 PM

Sen. Ted Cruz said he and the incoming Congress are anxious to get started working with President Donald Trump.

"We have the opportunity in front of us to do an enormous amount of good. We have the opportunity for this to be the most productive Congress in decades," Cruz said in a Friday interview on Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria."

Cruz addressed plans that Congress has, including repealing Obamacare, appointing a conservative Supreme Court justice, and tax reform.

"This summer or fall, it's our intention to use budget reconciliation to pass tax reform, to dramatically simplify the tax code and lessen the burdens on job creators," Cruz said.

The Texas Republican pointed out that with control of the entire Congress, Republicans must produce results.

"At this point, we don't have any excuses left. We have got to deliver," he said.

The senator addressed cyber attacks and Russia, saying former President Barack Obama's foreign policy was "weak" during another appearance on Friday, this time on NBC's "Today" show.

"The Obama foreign policy has been to show weakness in the face of aggression," and that's why the cyber attacks from foreign powers have become more prevalent, Cruz said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin did not respect Obama, Cruz said. "Our enemies are not afraid of us, and that needs to change," the senator said.
