Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday that his latest scheme to shut down part of the government would prevent Attorney General Eric Holder's replacement from being confirmed.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Cruz explained his plan defund the Department of Homeland Security if President Barack Obama refuses to rescind an executive action that grants legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants.
"The problem is that's almost exactly what you did with the government shutdown across the entire government in October of 2013 in Obamacare, and it backfired badly on your party," Wallace observed.
"We should use the checks and balances that we have to rein in the abuse of power of the executive," Cruz insisted, adding that step one of his plan was for the Senate to stop the confirmation of any of the president's nominees for the rest of his term if they were not "vital" to national security.
"Are you saying that the Senate should refused to confirm Loretta Lynch, the president's new nominee for attorney general?" Wallace wondered.
