To Cruz, his candidacy is all about actions. It is not his words, but his record of devotion to conservative causes that he wants people to remember.
Instead of an “issues” page on his website, Cruz has a “proven record” page detailing what he has done for the issues he cares about, including: preserving economic liberty, fighting for the 2nd Amendment, protecting U.S. sovereignty, championing pro-life causes, securing the borders, protecting marriage, and standing up for America’s troops.
On health care, Cruz is focused on dismantling every single word of Obama’s health care reform act.
“I think the first and principle objective is to repeal Obamacare before it does lasting, fundamental damage to our health care system, to our individual liberty, to the relationship each of us has with his or her doctor.” Cruz said. “Right now, one of the reasons health care is so expensive is because government regulators have driven up the cost in many, many states, by adding piles and piles of regulations of additional coverage, which has the effect of pricing health care insurance out of the reach of many people.”
Several other Republicans are also seeking the party’s nomination for the seat, which is likely to stay in GOP hands, including Railroad Commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones, ex-Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and former Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams.
There is also talk that if Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst decides to get in the race, he will be the odds on favorite to win. Dewhurst has yet to make a decision.
