Sen. Michael Bennet gave an impassioned speech on the Senate floor on Thursday where he excoriated Sen. Ted Cruz for “crocodile tears” that Cruz was making in a speech about first responders impacted by the government shutdown. Bennet attacked Cruz for the 2013 shutdown, which negatively impacted Colorado, reeling at the time from a series of floods.
