The Senate held important votes last week on defunding Obamacare and the Second Amendment I’d like you to know about. If you have a moment, please read and share the latest news with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. As always, it’s an honor to represent you and the Great State of Texas.
All the best,

Ted Cruz
All 45 Senate Republicans presented a united front and voted unanimously in favor of Sen. Cruz’s amendment to defund Obamacare in the upcoming Continuing Resolution. Unfortunately, the amendment was defeated on a party-line vote; all Senate Democrats voted against it. While it’s disappointing the amendment did not pass, Sen. Cruz is proud that all Senate Republicans recognized the threat Obamacare poses to our still-struggling economy and came together to force this matter for a vote in the U.S. Senate.
Shortly before the vote, Sen. Cruz delivered his first major speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, highlighting many of the promises Obamacare has already broken. Please take a moment to watch and share if you can.
