Ted Cruz: Democrats' Top Priority Is to Change the Rules to Stay in Power

Sen. Ted Cruz says Democrats top priority is staying in power

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has slammed Joe Biden and his party, accusing the Democrats of prioritizing their hunger for staying in power by seeking to change the rules.

Speaking during a press conference Thursday, Cruz said the Democratic Party's push to pack the Supreme Court and grant statehood for Washington, D.C., is part of a plan to ensure that they can never lose their grip on power.

His remarks came on the same day the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation to make D.C. the country’s 51st state. 

The bill will now move to the Senate after passing 216 to 208 in a strictly party-line vote.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hailed the statehood passage as a "momentous day for American democracy."

Democrats claim statehood is a matter of civil rights and a necessary step to right a historic injustice of taxing D.C. residents without affording them any representation in Congress.

However, Democrats are accused of pushing for D.C. statehood in order to add a Democratic representative in the House plus two Democratic senators in Congress.

Cruz called the effort "fundamentally corrupt."

"Their first priority is to change the rules to stay in power," he said.

He also said the push is evidence that Democrats don’t believe in Democracy.

"If they want to stay in power, there’s a real simple path for that," Cruz said.

"Convince voters your ideas are right.

"But that’s too complicated," he added.

"Sometimes the voters disagree."


He said Democrats are also trying to change voting rules in the country to essentially guarantee victories and dream of packing to the Supreme Court with "four left-wing radicals."

"This is an assault, fundamentally, on the independence of the judiciary," he said.
