Cruz decries ‘extreme land grab’ in defense bill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Wednesday called for his colleagues to reject an annual defense bill because of the “extreme land grab” tacked onto the measure.

The bipartisan proposed bill, released late Tuesday, includes a variety of public land and energy provisions, including designating new national parks and wilderness areas, and speeding the permitting process for oil and gas drilling, and energy and mineral measures.

Cruz called the provisions and the decision to attach them to the National Defense Authorization Act “an extreme land grab to the NDAA [that] is a disservice to members of the Armed Forces.”

    Why is a lame duck senate taking up these issues? The only reason I can see is so the Democrats and the RINOs can do maximum damage to our country. And of course the incoming majority leader of the senate is in bed with those that are out to destroy the country.
