(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has a message for House Republicans: “Stop reading the New York Times.”
Speaking Saturday at the conservative National Review Institute summit, Cruz said, “Let me give three concrete bits of advice to conservatives in Washington, and in particular let me address this to our friends in the House of Representatives, who I think for the next two years are the last bastion standing between us and oblivion,” the freshman senator told a gathering of conservatives at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.
“The first thing I would urge to every Republican in the House of Representatives is stop reading the New York Times,” he said. “Cancel your subscription.”
“Listen, the media is going to tell you—I’ll sum it up, the next two years of headlines from the New York Times: ‘The Democrats Are Right,’ ‘Abandon Conservative Principles’ and ‘Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter,’” Cruz said. “Their answer—and it will be their prescription on every single fight—here is what conservatives and Republicans need to do: abandon your principles and become Democrats.”
The Tea Party favorite said the Republican majority in the House has “every bit as much mandate” as President Barack Obama does, since both were reelected in 2012, and Republicans should work in the short term to stop the agenda of the Democrats.
