Dems rage at Cruz after he mocks Senator’s proposal “Give everyone $1 million a day, every day, forever. And three soy lattes a day”

Democrats fumed at Ted Cruz after he made a joke some felt was insensitive.

It Began when Senator Ed Marky (D-MA) tweeted “Give every person in our country $2000/month for the duration of the pandemic, $2000/month for 3 months after that, and $2000/month retroactive to March.”

Cruz mocked Markey by responding “Why be so cheap? Give everyone $1 million a day, every day, forever. And three soy lattes a day. And a foot massage.

We have a magic money tree — we should use it!”

Markey himself then replied to Cruz “It’s not a goddamn joke Ted. Millions of families are facing hunger, the threat of eviction, and the loss of their health care during a pandemic that is worsening every day. Get real.”

As well as a firestorm of Democrats.

Hey, @tedcruz! Before the pandemic 8 out of 10 people were living paycheck to paycheck, a life-event away from financial ruin. That means 8 out of 10 people are now IN financial ruin. SHAME ON YOU and the GOP. Stop bailing out the wealthy and bring relief to American families.

You’re awful. Families are suffering. Being evicted. Losing healthcare. And you sneer and mock them. What a heartless goon.

This is all a joke to Ted Cruz, who has no understanding what people in Texas are facing right now. This level of contempt for the working class, for Texans losing everything — facing eviction, children and families lacking food — is a new low, even for him.
