For Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, it’s time Democrats paid the price. As the long, hot summer of 2020 spirals into more street violence by rioters posing as protesters against police violence, the Republican senator is pushing one way to hold Democratic officers responsible for allowing the continuing chaos. It’s a federal bill, introduced last week, to make cities liable for damage to businesses and personal property that’s being allowed to take place because the Democrats who control them are holding police back from their duty. “We’re seeing growing violence, we’re seeing physical assault, we’re seeing radicals who are trying to really tear down our society, and none of this should be complicated,” Cruz told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday.
