Texas Senator Ted Cruz flew to Cancun Mexico as we suffered in freezing weather without electricity for a spur of the moment 'family vacation'.
In the tweets below you can see Ted Cruz board a flight for Mexico, with his wife and daughter for company.
Sources say that Ted Cruz had booked a return flight for Saturday but changed his itinerary for a flight back yesterday, Wednesday, 2/17/2021.
Ted Cruz went on vacation as the GOP created statewide power outages left millions without heat in 5 degree temperatures as Covid-19 ravaged our citizenry. On top of that, many in the state, like me still don't have drinking water.
In desperation I accepted an invitation to stay with a friend in Dallas despite being warned she may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19. It was a difficult long trip but I was thankful.
However when we got there the conditions were terrible so I sat on the floor near their door crying and searching for for someone, anyone who would save my kitty and I from freezing.
Meanwhile Ted Cruz.....
I finally found our haven last night at a UU church...so I didn't get back in time to help with this..
This while the inoculated Ted Cruz enjoyed his privileged life in comfort with his inoculated family while his duty was here, with the people he swore to serve. I am enraged beyond words and so are many of his other constituents.

"Yesterday my daughters asked if they could take a trip with some friends, and Heidi and I agreed, so I flew down with them last night, dropped them off here and now I'm headed back to Texas." pic.twitter.com/5d8UwlmZWv
It has been confirmed with United Airlines that Cruz was scheduled to return back CUN/HOU on the late afternoon Saturday flight (4:45PM). That FACT/EVIDENCE thing is a bitch.— Brent O (@OnlineDetective) February 18, 2021
According to the grid operators the wind power generation units operated better than expected producing peak enegery despite not being winterized as manufacturers recommended. The reason Texas suffered when others states didn't is a result of greed and one party rule.
Texans are suffering without power because those in power have failed us. As with Covid, a natural disaster has become far deadlier due to the inaction & ineptitude of Abbott and Texas’ Republican leadership. This didn’t have to happen and doesn’t have to continue. 1/4 pic.twitter.com/fqEun4fU97— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) February 16, 2021
Texas has detached it self from the national power grid making this failure an inevitability.
meanwhile Ted Cruz gets a police escort..
