McCain said that Cruz did not think through his filibuster.

"I understand where Senator Cruz is coming from. We have a cordial relationship, and I respect his right to do -- exercise his rights as the United States senator which he did last week, but I allege that there was no plan," McCain said. "There was no plan once we had taken the United States on the brink of this financial crisis that we were approaching."
