Today on Capitol Hill, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had a message for President Obama and Senate Democrats voting to undermine the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision: “If you’re litigating against nuns, you have probably done something wrong.”
Sixty votes were needed to debate the bill, which was sponsored by Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Mark Udall, D-Colo. However, the Senate voted 56 to 43, largely on party lines, in favor of upholding religious freedom of employers. In his prepared speech, Cruz added, “Mr. President, it saddens me that there are not 100 senators here unified, regardless of our faith, standing together protecting the religious liberty rights of everyone.” Watch the video above for his full statement.
