AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Tea party darling Ted Cruz has been sworn in as U.S. senator and says his first order of business will be introducing a bill he knows will never pass.
Cruz is a Cuban-American and former state solicitor general. On Thursday, he became the first Hispanic to represent Texas in the Senate.
He has pledged that his first bill would seek to repeal “every syllable of every word” of the Obama administration’s health care reform law.
