To The Daily Sun,
I am very curious. Ted Cruz tells us that if he is elected he will do the following:
1. Abolish the IRS.
2. Get "rid" of welfare benefits for illegal immigrants.
3. Get "rid" of Obamacare and replace it with a "far better plan."
4. Bring jobs back to the U.S. from other countries.
5. Raise wages.
Just to name a few of his campaign '"promises."
I have to ask the following. Why, as a member of this current Congress, hasn't he and his Republican/Tea Party colleagues been able to accomplish these very goals since they have a majority (or more accurately a stranglehold) in both the House and Senate?
Why does Senator Cruz continue to outright lie about getting "rid" of those mythical welfare benefits for illegal immigrants. He knows full well that they are not able to receive those benefits?
His Republican majority has tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act 54 times (or is it 55 or 56? I've lost track after the first 50 times), wasting massive amounts of taxpayer money in the process. The Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, thereby saving more than 16 million Americans from losing health care benefits.
He along with his Republican/Tea Party colleagues have outright refused to consider raising the minimum wage. Bring back jobs to the United States that have been outsourced by corporations. Really? Why does he want to wait until the time he might be elected president? Why not NOW?
Instead of threatening to abolish the IRS, when is Senator Cruz going to give us some details as to how he will do away with all of the tax loopholes that exist for the very wealthy. Currently the top one per centers are able to "hide" more than $4.2 trillion (yes: that's trillion with a T) dollars in overseas bank accounts in order to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. Loopholes that the other 99 percent of us don't have.
It seems that Trump's nickname for Senator Cruz is very appropriate.
