Ron Paul: Cruz ‘owned by Goldman Sachs’

by Mark Hensch  |  published on February 7, 2016

Former Rep. Ron Paul is lashing out at Ted Cruz, calling the GOP presidential contender too close to Wall Street.

“People are liking Cruz. They think he’s for the free market, and he’s owned by Goldman Sachs,” the former Texas lawmaker said on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” according to Politico.

“I mean, he and [Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton] have more in common than we would have with either Cruz or [Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump] or any of them so I just don’t think there is much picking,” Paul added.

Ron Paul also praised Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

“On occasion, Bernie comes up with libertarian views when he talks about taking away the cronyism on Wall Street, so in essence he’s right, and occasionally he voted against war,” Paul added.

    Ron Paul is owned by the American Medical Association. An organization which is as influential, if not more so than Goldman Sachs.

    Ted Cruz has shown he is a man of his word by the way this Texas senator has voted and what he has opposed. Knowing the Constitution as he does, with his temperament, would seem to point to him being a fine President.

          Based on his discrimatory langiage which has been recorded in the national and international press.

          He grew up on the home of a bigot. “Go back to Kenya!” Cruz’s father told a crowd at a Tea Party rally in Texas.
