Heidi Cruz Torched Over ‘Tone-Deaf’ Lament About Ted Cruz’s 6-Figure Senate Salary

Heidi Cruz was mocked on Twitter for appearing to suggest that she and husband Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) couldn’t afford a second home because his lawmaker salary is only $174,000 per year.

Cruz, a Goldman Sachs managing director, said in an interview with The Atlantic that she was working 70-hour weeks as the family’s “primary breadwinner.” She said she nevertheless was supportive and “mission-driven” on what her spouse is “accomplishing.” 

“I really hope he wins his re-election,” she said of her husband, who is challenged in the November midterms by Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

But the couple would not be “buying a second home anytime soon,” Cruz added in the piece published Thursday.

Our thoughts are prayers are with you. I’m so sorry you can’t get your second home. Most people don’t even own one but we won’t hold your lack of a second house against you. https://t.co/TwaJKA7HxE

This poor Heidi Cruz! Such a hard life. Ted only make 4 times what the average American does. How can you afford a second home on that? Even the tax scam didn’t help enough. No house in the Hamptons this year. So much sacrifice! I’m tearing up reading this. Out of touch much? https://t.co/jASmgXiGMO
