Senate GOP Aide: ‘Ted Cruz And His Tortilla Coast Republicans Are Leading Us To A Default’

AP

With the possibility of breaching the debt limit looking more and more plausible as House Republicans struggle to appease their caucus and come up with a plan to re-open the government and increase the debt ceiling, one Senate Republican aide placed the blame on a particular senator from Texas.

“Ted Cruz and his Tortilla Coast Republicans are leading us to a default,” the aide told TPM when asked what happens next.

Cruz reportedly met with a group of House conservatives at Tortilla Coast, a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C., to discuss strategy Monday night.
