Sen. Ted Cruz: “I’m A Conservative Because Conservative Policies Work”

SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TEXAS): The reason why I’m a conservative is because conservative policies work and they improve opportunities. They are the avenue for climbing the economic dream. And what I have been talking about for many years is opportunity conservatism, that every policy should focus like a laser on easing the means of ascent up the economic ladder. That we should be championing the 47%, to take that now infamous comment.

Look, the great thing about Americans — Americans don’t want to be dependent upon government. Dependency saps the spirit, it doesn’t work. Americans want to stand on their own two feet and the best way to do that is to have policies that allow entrepreneurs and small business to thrive and to create jobs and advance the American dream.


CRUZ: The great thing about the election that we just went through is that we saw hundreds of thousands of grassroots activists across Texas and across the nation stand up against a mountain of money, mountains of attacks. We weren’t supposed to win this race. And so, I feel like I’m coming into office surrounded by and lifted up by those grassroots conservatives, who I am happy to stand with over and over again.


CRUZ: I think the fiscal cliff deal was a lousy deal… I think those who believe in limited spending and solving the debt and not bankrupting our kids have the advantage in the negotiation on the debt ceiling. If we can stand strong and insist on, number one, structural reforms to fix the problems and; number two, pro-growth policies, so we can grow the economy, we can get jobs back, we can get people back to work. I think we can win that debate and win that argument.
