This guy shouldn't have been shocked that his government paychecks ended when he resigned after 16 years. He knew the bargain.
“[Cruz] might not be the most fun to have a drink at the bar with, but America needs a designated driver.” - Mica Mosbacher, wife of the late Robert Mosbacher, Secretary of Commerce
