“I think you can sum up the first hundred days of this presidency, and I think you can sum up the speech that we’re going to hear tonight, in three words: boring, but radical,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Wednesday.
In a Fox News interview, Sen. Cruz said the Biden White House has made a shrewd decision to “be as boring as possible” to cloak its radical agenda:
“I think Joe Biden has made a decision, the Biden White House has made a decision, to be as boring as possible. And, you think of it: after four years of, every day, the president driving the news, I think it’s probably smart politics of the Biden White House having people wake up and not ask themselves, ‘What did the president tweet last night? What did he say?’
“I think you’ll see a very quiet Uncle Joe speaking, and giving calm, soothing words.
“But, the underlying policies that are being implemented, this is not a moderate agenda. This is not a unity agenda. This is a radical agenda. Biden has handed the Democratic Party over to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and AOC.”
“And, in a hundred days, we’ve seen some of the most radical policies that have ever been implemented. We’ve seen the Keystone Pipeline shut down, tens of thousands of jobs destroyed with the stroke of a pen. We’ve seen trillions of dollars of spending and, tonight, Joe Biden is going to propose trillions of dollars more.”
Pres. Biden is seeking trillions of dollars in additional taxes “on everything” and everyone in order to fund his radical agenda, Cruz said:
“He’s going to propose trillions of dollars in additional taxes. If you’re an American, if you’re working, your taxes are going up. He’s raising corporate taxes, individual taxes, the death tax, capital gains taxes – he’s raising taxes on everything.
“And, then, the radical plan that I don’t expect him to talk about, but it is front and center to his agenda, is to pack the U.S. Supreme Court, to put four radical leftists on the court to take away our free speech rights, our religious liberty rights, our Second Amendment rights.”
“This is truly a radical agenda. And, I think that’s what we’re going to see laid out in calm and dulcet tones tonight,” Sen Cruz said.
