Senator Ted Cruz talks about all the “heat” that has been “internally generated in the Republican conference” due to his principled stand on a number of issues, such as gun control.
He talks about five or six lunches that he’s had with his GOP colleagues where they have pointed at Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and himself, and said, “Why did you do this? As a result of what you did, when I go home, my constituents are yelling at me that I got to stand on principle!”
Senator Cruz emphasizes that, “I’m really not making that up. I don’t even bother to argue with them, I just sorta let them yell.”
He concludes, “There are a lot of people that don’t like to be held accountable.”
