He may have been known as Lyin’ Ted in the past, but credit where credit is due. He had a good idea on how to fund the wall!
In April of last year, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) came out and said it: Use the $14 billion seized from drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to fund Trump’s border wall.
You know what? He’s right.
Where is that money anyway?
No seriously, where is it? It’s $14 freaking Billion dollars.
We didn’t piss that away on NASA too, did we? Are we really spending all this money on NASA when we all know the Earth is flat and there is a dome over it? What a joke.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
Here’s more on the story, from our friends over at Breitbart:
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”
Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday. “The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.
Sorry for the Pic!
By the way, I tried to find a nice picture of Ted Cruz smiling and not looking like a weasely rat bastard creep, but this was the best I could find.
Trust me, there is no better pic of him out there. It doesn't exist.
Oh, And This.....
By the way, while we're talking about Ted Cruz's looks and all, have you seen these?
