"We had a chance to secure affordable broadband for millions of Americans, but Sen. Cruz said no,'" Cantwell said in a statement.

"He said no' to securing a lifeline for millions of Americans who rely on the Affordable Connectivity Program to speak to their doctors, do their homework, connect to their jobs, and stay in touch with loved ones " including more than one million Texas families."

"Senate majority leader Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., joined Cantwell in taking shots at Cruz.

"Instead of making these much-needed and common-sense investments, Sen. Cruz has chosen to obstruct and delay the committee process with petty partisan culture wars all to serve wealthy and well-connected corporations at the cost of working Americans who are struggling to get by," he said in a statement."
