Senator Ted Cruz announced a few weeks ago that he would be a candidate for President of the United States. Say what?
So far, his two major accomplishments include leading the effort to shut down the federal government in 2013—costing $24 billion dollars and in the words of fellow GOP Rep. Peter King, “reading Dr. Seuss on the Senate floor…which are the marks of a carnival barker.”
After Senator Cruz’s official announcement on a round, game-show style stage at Liberty University, the Senator proceeded to lay out his “vision” for the future.
–Repeal Affordable Care Act
–outlaw abortion and deny women health care choices best left to women, family and medical professionals
–opposes marriage equality and LGBTQ rights
–opposes immigration reform and wants to build a border wall
In the world of Ted Cruz, lies and conspiracy theories pass for serious discussion and obsessive pandering to tea party fanatics represent “outreach” and “diversity” in a Presidential campaign.
