Sen. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] chided Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] on his voting record in the Senate, accusing him of voting “on budges that have hurt the military,” Israel, and our intelligence programs.

Appearing on The Hugh Hewitt Show on Wednesday, Rubio criticized Cruz for their “policy differences” emphasizing Cruz working “with the Democrats like Chuck Schumer and the ACLU to harm our intelligence programs.” (RELATED: Rubio Blasts Obama: ‘Focuses On The Petty Instead Of Being Presidential’ [VIDEO])

Rubio explained, “There are policy differences between the candidates. You know, Sen. Cruz over the last three years, is someone that I like personally, we get along, we share a lot of views. On some of the defense issues, we’ve parted ways on occasion.”

“I think this is his first few years in the Senate that he’s been there, he’s voted on budgets that have hurt the military, he voted for a budget that basically gutted the foreign aid programs, particularly our defense of the Israelis and the aid that we’ve provided them. And he was part of that coalition that worked with the Democrats like Chuck Schumer and the ACLU to harm our intelligence programs.”

“And so Senator Cotton and I joined in today this effort are trying and get that reversed so that we can have the meta data collection program reinstated for the long-term so that this country does not lose a valuable tool in the War on Terror.”

The Cruz campaign has not responded to TheDC’s request for a response at time of publication​.
