Smart Canadian born immigrant, up and coming leader of the Tea Party and Presidential prospect of the Republican Party Cruz was elected U.S. Senator from Texas in 2012.

A rich, arrogant elitist, well educated by two of America’s finest Educational Institutions, Harvard Law School and Princeton University, yet has little understanding, or consideration for, America’s poor working class that cannot compete with the huge advantages that the ultra rich receive; Welfare doesn’t even come close… and no working person should ever be forced to live in poverty.

He stands, with the Tea Party, for limited Government that would radically cut Medicare and eliminate crucial Departments that would benefit big business and his personal agenda but stifle jobs and advancement opportunities for minorities and low income workers.

In a Houston Chronicle news article Cruz said:  “We need to eliminate unnecessary and unconstitutional agencies like the Department of Education … the Department of Commerce, the Department of Energy, the National Endowment of the Arts. … I would most like to eliminate the Internal Revenue Service.”

Education, in particular, is most important in preparing poor unskilled workers for jobs and advancement in the work force and essential for economic equality.  It is imperative that greater emphasis be placed on the Department of Education, not eliminate it.  Bill Gates claims “Education would be the top issue since it is key to individual opportunity and to the country as a whole and we are not doing as well as other countries”.

When most people think of Ted Cruz, they remember that he orchestrated the devastating Government shut down in October of 2013 and the loss of our highly respected AAA Credit rating at a very high cost to tax payers simply because he couldn’t get his own way in recalling the Affordable Health Care Act which was passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives, signed by the President and approved by the Supreme Court.

But mark my words, there will be change coming to Washington.

As Donna Brazile, a noted news commentator, put it “Change is gonna come”.

    Is this guy for real? Ah, well he is Governor of a large state. How worrying is this?

    I don’t know the first thing about that Ted Cruz, but I totally agree with what Bill Gates said! Take education away and you are left with nothing but ignorance, which, as history confirmed countless time is the easiest to manipulate!

      Thank you for the visit and for leaving a comment, he really is scary. Hopefully the Texas Tea Party will diminish to the point that Cruz will be replaced by someone who cares about Texas and the country.
