Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas took on liberal actress Alyssa Milano after she tried to blame him and his fellow Republicans for the lack of a deal on a new coronavirus aid package.

The Twitter feud began after Cruz posted a comment about the changing demographics of the Democratic Party based on statistics about the changing voting habits of the highest earning counties in the U.S.

“Today’s Dems are the party of the rich. GOP is and should be the party of the working class,” Cruz said.

Milano, a vehement and vocal critic of President Donald Trump and the Republican party, criticized Cruz in response.

“This is hilarious. Why is the GOP blocking covid relief from working class families if it’s the party of working class? Or blocking the bill to raise minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour. Sit down,” Milano tweeted, garnering almost 800 retweets for the retort.

“Alyssa, facts matter. Dems have TWICE filibustered $500Bn in emergency COVID relief,” tweeted Cruz in response.

“EVERY SINGLE Senate Dem voted to block relief — Pelosi refuses even to talk — bc they believe maximizing economic pain helped Biden & it helps Dems in GA,” he added, “[and] they trust the press to cover for them.”

Milano responded but ignored the specific points that Cruz raised in order to continue to blame Republicans.

“The American people aren’t dumb, Ted. 14 million children and 5.5 million seniors don’t have enough food to eat in this country and your party wants to bail out corporations and wealthy sycophants. Your president would rather claim unsubstantiated election fraud than govern,” she tweeted.

Cruz made similar arguments when socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York attempted to make the same accusations against Republicans.

While experts are cautioning against opening up the economy in light of what appears to be a second spike in coronavirus cases, many workers and business owners are speaking out against lockdown measures and arguing that they are far too draconian.

  1. There will be no change in the Democrat party as they now hang-on for their dear or disgusting (whichever way you look at a Democrat) I prefer the later.

    For their very existence with hope and anticipation I am personally looking forward to many indictments and all or most all will be to those so proudly making themselves with the Democrat party of Communists. Trump will see to it I am hopeful.

    Last stand for America ideas for President Donald Trump:
    #1) Use presidential executive order to demand proof of federal photo ID and thumbprints for federal elections. If it is not racist in Mexico, it is not racist here.
    #2) Make English the official and only language of voting in America.
    #3) Order the posting of multiple ICE agents at polling places across America during election season. Don’t Democrats claim illegal aliens never vote? Then why would this be a problem? ICE agents don’t scare me. They shouldn’t scare any legal American citizen. They cannot touch us. In addition, if you’re illegal and they scare you, I have a simple solution: Stay away from polling places.
    #4) Make election fraud by a noncitizen a felony punishable by instant deportation.
    #5) Never, never, never, ever allow mail-in voting.

    These five ideas are how we guarantee election integrity. This is how we stop “foreign interference” in our elections. In America the Greatest Nation of ALL! Make America Great Again!

    This is how we stop the Democratic Scam of the Century.

  2. Must restore credibility to elections if America is to be the land of the free. The brave people must make it happen and protect our home.

  3. The democrats in my opinion are trying to run our beloved country into the ground. The deep state has to be dismantled or our country will never survive. This evil regime of democrats are pushing to shutdown our Country for a second time because they know it will be detrimental to small businesses like mine! How else do you think they will make us into a Socialist country and then to THE ONE WORLD ORDER? The elite such as George Soros and Nancy Pelosi from all indications have funded the rioting that has been going on in our big cities! Why else do you think B.L.M. is already trying to pressure the Dems for more funding and changes! The riots, mask wearing and shutdowns have all been pushed by democrats. Folks these evil people are Hell Bent on destroying our country!

  4. JD: We also need major voting reform. No “found” ballots should be counted. If they were “found,” then they had to be “lost.” To be “lost,” then they had to have fallen from the chain of custody. As with criminal prosecutions, for which evidence that has fallen from the chain of command is not admissible, in voting, ballots that have fallen from the chain of command must not be admissible. They must not be destroyed, because they must be preserved as evidence of voting fraud. They must be examined for fingerprints, and they must be examined for patterns of handling, i.e., by whom, from where, to where, and suspicious markings must be catalogued, i.e., handwriting, ink used, commonalities of marking methods, etc.

    Ballots from overseas military personnel must be guarded, not by the post office, but by military escorts. I had extra duties to guard and escort pallets of top secret materials on occasional commercial flights. It should be an extra duty to ensure prompt delivery of ballots, with signed chain of custody documents, to prevent their “loss” by the USPS.

    We must eliminate voting by machine and require hand counting of all ballots. Ballots must have unique serial numbers, so none can be counterfeited or counted more than once. These unique ballots must be preserved and be accessible to the voter and to researchers studying American election processes.

    Absentee ballots must never be provided as a matter of mere convenience for lazy voters. Each voter must make a personal appearance at his polling station, and it must be on only one day — Election Day. There must not be early voting, nor extended voting.

    There must not be same day registration/ voting. If you intend to vote, get registered by the required deadline. There shall be no vouching for voters, as is done by those voting in different precincts. Vouching allows people with insufficient residency to vote — WARNING to Georgia, considering the DNC’s urging of Leftists to make temporary migrations to effect change the Senatorial runoff election.

    All voting registers must be purged of all unauthorized personnel — foreigners, dead people, and those whose voting rights have been suspended must be cleared continuously. Any Secretary of State who fails this key duty, shall be removed from office.

    If anyone promotes “voting online” or “mail-in ballots,” oppose them strenuously. Demand that photo IDs be required to vote.

    There are many more things to include here, but the list grows long.

  5. I reiterate what JD has posted here!

    Last stand for America ideas for President Donald Trump:
    #1) Use presidential executive order to demand proof of federal photo ID and thumbprints for federal elections. If it is not racist in Mexico, it is not racist here.
    #2) Make English the official and only language of voting in America.

    This is how we stop the Democratic Scam of the Century.

  6. I echo the above sentiments from JD and the others. I’ll add that the fascist left (Do NOT call them liberals) does NOT care about facts, evidence or the truth. It is immaterial to them. They are laser focused on one thing and one thing only and that is a bite-me/hairy camel presidency and control of the populace. That’s it. Now, get ready for civil war. Clean your guns and keep your powder dry.
