“Don’t be a jerk, Sen. Cruz.”

It is a shopworn technique of hard-line conservatives to declare themselves men and women of principle in contrast to those other Republicans — the ones, you know, who pass legislation and try to represent their constituents. It is both self-serving (presuming principles are of no matter to opponents) and lazy in that it is always easy to say no, ridicule compromise and remain pristine rather than trying to improve legislation or introduce an alternative.

I’m sorry to say Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is too often falling into the reflexive habit of voting no on everything and then mocking his colleagues.
