Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats of “keeping working men and women from working" during a “Face the Nation" interview.

Cruz told CBS host Margaret Brennan that the Democrats' plans to provide temporary relief to some Americans could also increase economic problems by encouraging people to stay on unemployment rather than return to work. 

“We have right now two simultaneous national crises,” Cruz began.

Though Cruz noted that although the coronavirus pandemic had devastated the US, he argued more could be done to tackle the spread of disease.

But Cruz said that the ensuing lockdowns could add to the economic devastation. 

“Unfortunately. I just listened to your interview with Speaker Pelosi, her objectives are focused on neither of those, her objectives are shoveling cash at the problem and shutting America down and in particular, you look at the $3 trillion bill she’s trying to push," he said.

"It’s just shoveling money to her friends and not actually solving the problem,” Cruz continued.

Cruz also highlighted that the Democrats’ plans for $600 per person federal boost to unemployment benefits, which he says resulted in workers being paid almost twice as much to stay home.

“The problem is 68% of people receiving it now, they’re being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job," Cruz said.

"I’ll tell you, I’ve spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas trying to reopen and they’re calling their waiters and waitresses and busboys and they don’t want to come back and of course they won’t if the federal government is paying them in some instance twice as much money to stay home,” Cruz explained.

Cruz concluded by saying that the real solution would be a recovery bill that would untangle regulations strangling small businesses.

“We’re 100 days out from the presidential election, the only objective Democrats have is to defeat Donald Trump and they cynically decided best way to defeat Donald Trump is shut down every business in America, shut down every school in America,” Cruz said.

“You know, Nancy Pelosi talked about working men and women, what she’s proposing is keeping working men and women from working — and ironically, what she does have is a big tax cut for millionaires and billionaires in blue states.”
