Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, will not vote for the House-passed debt-ceiling bill because it does not include spending cuts, his office said on Wednesday.

“For four years, the Senate Democrats have refused to pass a budget, and the House plan may well force them to finally do their job,” Cruz said in a statement Wednesday night. “However, suspending the debt ceiling without significant cuts or spending reforms just doesn’t make sense, and I intend to vote no.”

Cruz earlier this week, on Meet the Press, said the House bill was a good first step but that it did not go far enough. He had not, however, stated whether he ultimately would support the legislation if it came to the Senate floor.
