Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) blasted Senate Democrats over a proposed constitutional amendment that would empower Congress to regulate campaign finance at a Senate Judiciary hearing Tuesday, accusing them of “daring to mess with the Bill of Rights.”
“When did elected Democrats abandon the Bill of Rights?” Cruz asked. “Where did the liberals go?…Why is there not a liberal standing here defending the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment?”
“The Bill of Rights begins with the First Amendment. For over two centuries, Congress has not dared to mess with the Bill of Rights,” Cruz stated. “This amendment, here today, if adopted, would repeal the free speech protections of the First Amendment.”
