Ted Cruz Articulates the Republican Party’s Utter Disdain for Education and Young Voters

Last week President Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to address the problem of burdensome student college loans. The program provides forgiveness of $10,000 of outstanding loans – $20,000 for Pell grants – for people with incomes below $125,000 a year.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

Within minutes of the announcement, Republicans and their conservative media mouthpieces began criticizing and lying about the program. They complained that it was a socialist handout that awarded deadbeats, loafers, and elitists.

The right-wing reaction revealed just how contemptuous the GOP is of working class Americans. And topping the list of liars is one of the GOP’s most prolific prevaricators, Sen. Ted Cruz. When he isn’t demonstrating his animosity for his troubled Texas constituents by jetting off to Cancun while they were freezing to death, Cruz is groveling on Fox News for the affection of Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, or some other MAGA martinet.

On Friday Cruz pontificated on his podcast about how despicable Americans are if they had the audacity to better themselves and their prospects for the future by attending college. Never mind that Cruz graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law. In his perverse mind today’s youth are a generation of vermin who deserve nothing but mockery and scorn. Cruz ranted that…

“There is a real risk if you are that slacker barista who wasted seven years in college studying completely useless things, now has loans, and can’t get a job, Joe Biden just gave you 20 grand. Like, holy cow, that 20 grand, you know, maybe you weren’t gonna vote in November and suddenly, you just got 20 grand.

“And you know, if you can get off the bong for a minute and head down to the voting station, or just send in your mail-in ballot that the Democrats have helpfully sent you, it could drive up turnout, particularly among young people.”

So in Cruz’s putrid perspective, higher education is a waste of time. He thinks that today’s college graduates are “slackers” and potheads. And he believes that their votes can be bought by politicians who dare to actually serve the interests of the people. What a concept.

You have to wonder what Cruz regards as “completely useless things” to study. Well, judging by his record in Congress, it’s science (climate change), math (economics), history (American slavery), journalism (the enemy of the people), and public policy (which is what Cruz’s undergraduate degree at Princeton was for).

In the meantime, Biden is pursuing what the broad majorities of the American people support. He recently expressed his agenda in eloquent terms when he distinguished the choices voters have…

See: BIDEN: Americans Have a Choice Between Two Very Different Sets of Values: Ultra-MAGA or Sanity

“My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

“The other path is the ultra-MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families; lower the incomes of American workers; threaten the sacred programs Americans count on like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires.”

Republicans have spent the last year and a half engaging in knee-jerk opposition to nearly everything that Biden and the Democrats have proposed. But despite that fierce obstructionism, Democrats have succeeded in advancing legislation that has stagnated for years in Congress. These bills have made significant progress on infrastructure, reproductive choice, gun safety, climate change, voting rights, tax fairness, veterans benefits, healthcare, and more. And Republicans opposed all of them.

It’s also notable that while Democrats are working on behalf of the people, Republicans are working on behalf of themselves. The White House posted a revealing thread on Twitter that brilliantly exposes the hypocrisy of Republicans who are attacking Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, while they stuffed their own pockets with hundreds of thousands of dollars more…

  1. Why even give a lazy, loudmouth, ignorant, shit spewing, dumbass like Ted Cruz the time of the day?? He has got a lot of nerve talking about someone being lazy when he is the laziest, cowardly, lying, ass kissing SOB there is in congress. The GQP has become the worst blight the USA has ever experienced. The GQP is a domestic terrorist organization that should be dealt with as soon as possible. Life sentences without parole would be the minimum sentence for those. The maximum sentence for them would be………. i am not going to say, but i suppose it could be guessed easily. They would be dealt with very harshly in other law abiding Democratic nations around the world. It’s deplorable that this kind of thing is even being tolerated here in the corrupt old United States. I am so sick and tired of these openly corrupt misfits getting away with everything…

    • Thank you, John!!! I was suspended from twitter for insulting Ted Cruz. Got back on when I deleted what I said. Talk about loudmouthed politicians! Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene are permitted to spew their toxic bullshit on a daily basis on twitter. I tweeted back to Boebert and got suspended again. Is twitter that conservative? And, now , the one and only sasquatch, Ted Cruz. Sitting there with a self satisfied, contemptuous look on his face. Yes, John, he has a lot of nerve. And he is so corrupt, he thinks he can get away with anything.

      • Oh, and that photo of Cruz I described was not on Mark’s blog. It was on another web sight. At least we’re all getting a sense of what Cruz really is.

      • You are welcome, i got suspended forever on a very Democratic site (DKOS) for making a comment about Marjorie Traitor Goon after she made a public remark about putting a bullet in the head of Nancy Pelosi, after that, i made a comment that Traitor Goon is the one that needs a bullet to her head and they were quick to suspend me forever. I can’t understand why these sites are so quick to defend these criminals that are lower than the contents of a cesspool. When a Democratic follower says something about a Rethug, we are punished, but it’s ok for those blowhards to say bad things about us…. as for Ted Cruz, i would not urinate on that pile of cow manure if he was on fire.

  2. Yes, you young folks are so self-serving to vote for candidates whose policies will benefit you and your families. Who do you think you are, one-percenters? I’ll be not one of you has donated $10K to attend a dinner for a GOP candidate who will facilitate predatory lenders, take away your bodily autonomy, and muck with your granny’s Social Security. Don’t you believe in Murrica?/s

    Leave it to cancun cruz to say the quiet part out loud. He and Hawley are supposed to be the conservative “intellectuals — Rhodes Scholars, multiple university degrees, yada, yada, yada. Yet, every time either of them opens his mouth, only abject stupidity pours out.

  3. Cancun Cruz and Hawley are now officially a part of the atrocious and psychopathic lords of the TUMP cult and all of their so-called intellectual achievements went out the window along with what little was left of their brains. They are now enslaved and loyal to the Lord and Master of the Universe called the TUMP cult. Nothing else is important to them any longer… just TUMP. This is just a fact of life now, and shows how far down the rabbit hole the United States has fallen to. The only hope we have now is to keep the Senate and somehow keep the house in the Democratic majority. If that goes bad, i am not staying here. The United States will be a dystopian hell hole if those horribly insane and corrupt Rethugs are in charge. I will be writing a letter to Justin Trudeau in Ottawa to beg them to let me live in Canada. I will NOT live under Nazi Federalists under any circumstances.. It’s a crying shame the United States tolerates what the criminal GQP is doing now. They are felonious thugs that are out to get all of the great citizens of the USA. TUMP and his cronies should have been imprisoned many months ago for their outrageous crime spree they openly commit with all of us to see… No one, i mean no one should be above the damn law, PERIOD!!!
