Michael Bennet slams Ted Cruz’s ‘crocodile tears’ in fiery speech on Senate floor on government shutdown


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.
