From a press release from Senator Ted Cruz concerning furloughed government employees:
Cruz continued: "Our spending is out of control and ObamaCare will drain our country dry, leaving us vulnerable to attacks by our Muslim enemies.This we cannot and must not tolerate. I call on all Tea Party members who work for the federal government to stand shoulder to shoulder with me as I lead the way into prosperity."
Cruz has asked all Tea Party federal employees to quit their government job to help reduce the deficit and contribute to less spending. "Tea party members have joined me in calling for less spending and a smaller government so I ask that they give up their government jobs and join the ranks of the private sector."
"Tea Party members would benefit greatly from unlatching from the tit of the government and giving up their health care benefits in order to lower the deficit. Not only will we reduce the deficit, we will reduce the incredible amount of hypocrisy of those calling for lower taxes while riding the backs of the taxpayers like a miniature pony in a Catholic church bazaar."
"You wanted lower taxes, so quit, or shut the f*&^ up."
