Senator Ted Cruz (R) Texas on Tuesday (06-03) charged Democrats of abandoning the Bill of Rights by attempting to amend the First Amendment to enable Congress to regulate spending on political campaigns.

Cruz is a potential candidate for the 2016 Presidential campaign. “For over two centuries, Congress has not dared to mess with the Bill of Rights,” Cruz said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Democratic legislation to amend the Constitution. “When did elected Democrats abandon the Bill of Rights?” he asked.
