DNC Chair Thinks Sen. Ted Cruz Is Speaker Of The House

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz believes that Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, instead of the actual speaker, John Boehner.

“Boehner has made it very clear he isn’t able to control his own conference. He isn’t really Speaker,” Wasserman Schultz told NBC reporter Chuck Todd, “Ted Cruz is Speaker!”

The leading Democrat and Florida congresswoman made her comments in response to accusations that her party is the only group discussing impeaching President Obama for fundraising purposes and how Cruz was supposedly responsible for the defeat of an immigration bill promoted by Boehner.
