Ted Cruz to Obama: Stay out of Texas, your lies are not welcome here

November 7, 2013 2:23 pm

This is why Ted Cruz is the man. He has the backbone to say what needs to be said. Obama’s broken promises are a cancer to any state he travels too. The reason why Texas is so successful is because they minimize their interaction with Obama and liberalism.

Ted Cruz wants President Barack Obama to know that he should “take his broken promises tour elsewhere,” according to a statement his office released Wednesday, just hours before Obama is supposed to speak in the Lone Star State.

“President Obama’s trip to Texas brings nothing with it but broken promises,” the freshman Republican senator said in the statement. “He promised that Americans could keep their health care plans. We were told premiums would go down, that jobs would be created. And we now know these are all false promises.”

Cruz’s comments come as the president visits Dallas to promote the Affordable Care Act as well as speak at a fundraiser.

“[I]n spite of all Texas has done to resist the biggest entitlement program of this generation, Obamacare is reducing health care options, increasing costs and hurting jobs,” the statement said. “It has no place in Texas and must be repealed.”

“President Obama should take his broken promises tour elsewhere so Texans can continue focusing on the solutions that have allowed our state to become and remain the nation’s economic and job creation powerhouse,” Cruz added.[/tab][/tabs]
