Ted Cruz and six other recent D.C. meddlers in Congress

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Earlier this week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), who seems to be glistening his resume for a potential presidential run, introduced a measure in Congress that would overturn two D.C. laws: one that prevents employers from discriminating against workers who use birth control or seek an abortion and another that repeals a congressional law that exempts religious educational institutions from the city’s anti-gay discrimination law.

Cruz’s disapproval resolutions could block local laws passed by the D.C. Council — if the resolutions pass the Senate and House and are signed by President Obama, an unlikely scenario.

Cruz is hardly the only to plot quixotic attempts to overturn D.C. laws as a way to flex their muscles to their constituents back home. He’s joining a growing list of Republicans who have sought to interfere with local D.C. laws, chiefly liberal social policies. Under the Home Rule Charter, Congress has the power to block any D.C. law it pleases, although it often chooses to do so through the appropriations process.

not to pick on grandpa monster, ol rand is in the mix too.
