Over the past six years, Texans have watched Ted consistently stand as a voice for liberty and in defense of our founding principles in the U.S. Senate.
When Dianne Feinstein and Senate Democrats attempted to impose expansive gun control, Ted Cruz refused to budge, and defended the Second Amendment.
“Would she [Feinstein] deem it consistent with the Bill of Rights for Congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the Second Amendment in the context of the First or Fourth Amendment, namely, would she consider it constitutional for Congress to specify that the First Amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights? Likewise, would she think that the Fourth Amendment’s protection against searches and seizures could properly apply only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights?”
When the Democrat party forced Obamacare on the country, and then President Obama promised that premiums for the average family would go down by $2,500 per year, or that “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,” Ted sounded the alarm that Obamacare would be a disaster. He warned that once implemented, Obamacare would be exceedingly difficult to repeal.
During his time in the Senate, Ted has authored and passed 32 bills, including laws to:
- Allow states to drug test unemployment benefit recipients
- Ban known terrorists from entering the US to be UN representatives
- Direct $5 billion in tax relief for hurricane victims
- Expand 529 savings accounts to include K-12 education
- Mandate Fort Hood shooting victims receive the Purple Heart
- Develop the first ever space-based missile interceptor testbed
- Designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism
- Strengthen NASA
- Led the successful effort to repeal the Obamacare individual mandate
As Governor Abbott said about Ted, “Since Ted Cruz was elected to the U.S. Senate, he has done everything he said he’d do for Texans, and more. From opposing gun control legislation, leading the effort to increase border security, and now spearheading the charge to confirm a constitutionalist to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court, Ted is a fighter who is getting things done for Texas.”
With 57 days remaining in this race, conservative Texans are increasingly engaged and getting active with the campaign. Please review the outline for the next 57 days available here.
What we do over the next 57 days will shape the state of Texas and impact the nation for years to come. Together, we will defend liberty, preserve our founding principles, and promote our common convictions as we #CruzToVictory in November!
