Wasting no time following being sworn in as the first Hispanic Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz re-affirmed his promise to fight for less government and more individual freedom, while also indicating he wants “every syllable” of Obamacare repealed.
(Newly elected Senator Ted Cruz does not intend to play nice in Washington D.C., but rather fight for the values he was elected to represent.)

Cruz Sworn In As Texas’ First Hispanic US Senator, Will Introduce Bill To Repeal ‘Obamacare’
…Cruz is a Cuban-American and former state solicitor general. On Thursday, he became the first Hispanic to represent Texas in the Senate.
He has pledged that his first bill would seek to repeal “every syllable of every word” of the Obama administration’s health care reform law.
…During his campaign, Cruz said cutting spending is his top priority and he wouldn’t go along with other senators to get along.
…The former Texas Solicitor General will sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee. LINK
Ted Cruz represents the kind of Republican who truly frightens progressive Democrats like Barack Obama and the Democratic Party leadership. Cruz also concerns the current Republican leadership as well due in great part to the newly elected senator’s unwillingness to compromise principle or follow the party line in order to simply “get along”. As a Hispanic-American, Cruz represents an example of what the Republican Party can be – a party of fundamental American values regardless of race. Values that appeal to voters of all backgrounds – though an appeal that over the last decade has been successfully muddled by operatives in the Mainstream Media and Democratic Party.
Smaller government, more personal freedom, support of the military…these are Constitutionally-protected values highly prized throughout the United States.- the very foundation of the nation. As the 2014 Midterm Election races are now already being formed, let us hope the Republican Party embraces figures like Ted Cruz – for they need to be the true future of the Republican Party. If Republicans do so, they will keep the House and win the Senate in 2014, and take back the White House in 2016 and begin to undo the significant damage being inflicted upon current and future generations by the Obama Democrats.
