ted cruz tax day

‘Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took it upon himself to make some Tax Day remarks. Too bad he doesn’t seem to realize a whole heck of a lot about them’.

Ted Cruz :

“Americans are giving too much of their income to fund too many wasteful government programs”.

Here are some of the “wasteful government programs” :

Medicare

Social Security

United States Military

The National Guard

The VA

Police

Fire Rescue

Making sure air is clean, water is drinkable,
and food is edible

The Postal Service

G.I. Bill

Public Transportation

Flight safety

Patent Protection

Medicaid

FDIC insured bank deposits

Public Libraries

Infrastructure so the “free market” can thrive

‘I wonder if Cruz would want us to cut any of these things':

  • His salary
  • United States Military
  • Subsidies to the wealthy for the most absurd
    things
  • $8.6 million per day to Israel
  • Billions in oil subsidies per year
  • Billions in farm subsidies

‘The Obamacare HE SIGNED UP FOR — although, he probably makes enough thanks to our tax
dollars that he doesn’t need subsidies himself’.

Republicans And A Christian Nation – ‘Ted Cruz Threatens To Take Away The Supreme Court’s Power To Decide Marriage Equality Cases’

religious right

Have you ever noticed that if a Republican is against something…….it doesn’t matter what it is…..then that thing is ‘illegal’, ‘lawless’ or ‘unconstitutional’.

The great news for the Nation is that Ted will force the rest of the Republicans to go further right on issues, imposing a Christian moral standard on everyone.

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – ‘On his first Iowa stop as a presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz warned Wednesday that a Supreme Court ruling to legalize gay marriage nationwide would be “fundamentally illegitimate.”

“Religious liberty is not some fringe view. It is the basis of this country,” he said. He blamed gay rights activists and Democrats for the recent uproar over an Indiana law that would protect businesses who refuse to provide certain services on religious grounds’.

“Because of their partisan desire to mandate gay marriage everywhere in this country, they also want to persecute anyone who has a good faith religious belief that marriage is a holy sacrament, the union of one man and one woman and ordained as a covenant by God,” he said’.

“Every one of us is concerned about the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision likely coming in June,” he said. “The first thing and I think the most important thing every one of us can do, is pray. Lift up in prayer.”

“If the court tries to do this it will be rampant judicial activism. It will be lawlessness, it will be fundamentally illegitimate,” he said’.

How Republicans Will Govern…..Not Show Up For Hearings – ‘Cruz MIA at Armed Services hearings’

ted cruz misses hearings

And he wants to be President…….

Ted Cruz thunders about what he calls a “fundamentally unserious” U.S. defense policy, but when he had a chance to weigh in during Senate Armed Services Committee hearings, he rarely showed up’.

‘Cruz, who announced last week he’s running for president, has the committee’s worst attendance record — by far’.

The Texas Republican attended just three of the panel’s 16 public hearings so far this year, according to a POLITICO review of transcripts from full committee hearings’.

‘The average committee member attended 13 of the 16 hearings, and Cruz is the only one of the panel’s 26 members with an attendance rate below 50 percent’.

Debunking Ted Cruz’s Lies – ‘Cruz vows to shun negative campaigning’

ted cruz

ted cruz character assisan o fcuck

“There may be other candidates who choose to throw rocks in my direction,” the GOP presidential hopeful said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I’m not going to engage in the personal mudslinging, in the negative attacks on people’s character.”(1)

If he doesn’t go negative…….he has never offered anything positive…..so he would have no campaign.

This is the only thing you need to know about Ted Cruz’s ‘character’…..or lack of.

Debunking Ted Cruz Lies – ‘Ted Cruz Wants You To Believe He’s Legally Required To Sign Up For Obamacare. He’s Not’

base1

ted cruz lies

‘Cruz framed the decision as one of inevitability’.

After all, a provision of the law requires members of Congress and some of their staff to purchase coverage through the law’s marketplace in DC and since his wife and current coverage provider is giving up her employer-sponsored plan to work on his presidential campaign, the family needed to enroll in a new policy’.

But in the real World…….

  • ‘The Affordable Care Act does not compel members of Congress to enroll in DC’s health care exchange';
  • ‘It simply cuts off the government contribution to their insurance plans if they buy their policies elsewhere’.

Ted would actually have to P-A-Y for his insurance.

(GASP)

“The final rule extends a Government contribution towards health benefits plans for Members of Congress and designated congressional staff so long as the health benefits plans are purchased via the appropriate SHOP as determined by the Director,” a summary of the final rule says’.

Nothing in the final rule or the law prevents a Member of Congress or designated congressional staff from declining a Government contribution for him or herself by choosing a different option for their health insurance coverage.”

Ted Cruz: I Started Listening To Country Music Because Of 9/11′ (3)

“My music taste changed on 9/11,” he said, followed by a pause’.

“I actually intellectually find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded,” the senator went on. “And country music, collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.”

‘Cruz did not specify which rock artists “responded” to the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks in a way that led him to switch genres’.(4)
