Texas Senator Ted Cruz: Joe Biden ‘Too Diminished’ Mentally to Talk Debt Ceiling

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Wednesday that President Biden has doomed negotiations with House Republicans over the debt ceiling because of his impaired mental state. Cruz told reporters the 80-year-old president’s approach to the crisis is a far cry from his performance during similar debt limit talks involving the Obama White House in 2011 — and suggested cognitive decline was to blame.
