Cruz: Thank You Harry Reid For The Most Conservative Cabinet In Decades


Sen. Ted Cruz spoke Thursday morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference, discussing the Supreme Court vacancy and other Senate nomination procedures.

"Many times since Jan. 20, I have raised a glass and toasted Harry Reid," Cruz joked. "Because Harry Reid employed the so-called nuclear option, broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules. Lowered the confirmation from 60 to 51 votes, and it is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades."

"And so if I could be a little presumptuous, let me on behalf of CPAC, thank Harry Reid. Harry Reid: Thank you for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And also we should be thanking Harry Reid for EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and very, very soon I look forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch," he said.
