Sen. Cruz to Rush: 'You'd Be in Therapy for a Month' After One Senate Lunch

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | September 25, 2013 | 1:45pm EDT

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh that he'd be "in therapy for a month" if he sat in on even one Senate lunch.

"I promise you Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, you'd be in therapy for a month."

Cruz expressed his frustration with the "defeatist attitude" of his colleagues and said that many seem to favor "show votes" on the issues so they can "pretend" they're fighting for their constituents.

"I will tell you the single biggest surprise on arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here," Cruz said.

"I mean we don't even talk about how to win a fight.  There's no discussion about that."

Cruz joined Limbaugh after speaking for more than twenty-one hours on the floor of the Senate in an effort to gain support to deny funding for Obamacare.
