A Ted Cruz presidency, as least in the first hundred days, would be primarily efforts to repeal and reverse the economically and socially damaging policies of the current president, Barack Obama, that was quite accurately labeled “The Great Destroyer” in a book by that title by David Limbaugh, as well as efforts to advance public policies that would bring about a strong economic recovery and begin the repairing of the social fabric of our county, as well as a return to an American-interests-first foreign policy.
Ted Cruz has enormous support among Republicans voters because he’s a mainstream but consistent conservative who is an economic conservative as well as social conservative while also being a strong national security conservative. Ted Cruz will implement a plan to protect Americans from extreme Muslim-influenced terrorism while eradicating ISIS. During the campaign, Cruz has made it clear the policy of apologizing for America will end, and we’ll see a return of the Reagan policy that says we win, and enemies of America around the world will lose. Ronald Reagan won the Cold War, and President Ted Cruz will likewise win the war on terrorism.
First, after delivering a quite Reaganesque inauguration address, President Ted Cruz will be ready on day one to sign several executive orders, including many that would reverse so many of the unconstitutional and destructive “executive actions” signed by President Barack Obama. Many needless regulations and other damaging policies of the current administration would be reversed on day one by President Cruz.
Ted Cruz will propose to Congress his simple flat tax plan, where everyone pays 10 percent, and gets a $10,000 standard deduction and a $4000 personal exemption. The IRS would be abolished, and the thousands of pages of tax forms will be replaced with a one-page tax form we’ll all fill out to pay our taxes. The plan will lower everyone’s taxes, help bring about solid economic growth, and create millions of high-paying jobs.
President Cruz will submit to the Congress a strong Balanced Budget Amendment, because the federal government, like our own households, needs to learn how to live within it means and stop spending money that it doesn’t have. And Ted Cruz knows that, despite more than 100 million Americans being unemployed, the federal government is going to take in more than $3 trillion in income tax revenue this year, a record amount, and it proves the government is squeezing excessively too much tax revenue from hard working Americans. Cruz knows that major tax relief for the middle class of America, which his plan will accomplish, will bring about strong economic growth.
Like Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, President Cruz will seek to reduce the size, scope, and intrusiveness of the federal government by eliminating five federal government departments that aren’t needed, or are not provided for in the Constitution. President Ted Cruz will propose eliminating the IRS and the Departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, and Housing and Urban Development. Additionally, Cruz will eliminate a number of other needless Agencies, Bureaus, Commissions and other programs that benefit the special interests groups and their corrupt cronies at taxpayer expense. As Senator, Ted Cruz proposed eliminating the rogue and out-of-control Consumer Financial Protection Bureau created under the Dodd-Frank banking regulation law, and he will submit that to Congress as president.
As president, Ted Cruz will re-institute President Reagan’s Grace Commission to root out waste, fraud, and abuse of federal spending under many areas of the federal government, and implement thousands of cost-cutting and revenue-enhancing ideas to bring about more efficient better government rather than bloated and inefficient bigger government. Additionally, President Cruz will fully empower and unleash the very effective Recovery Audit Contractors program to examine all payments from and root out all the waste, fraud, and abuse in Medicare, Medicaid, and all other federal health care programs.
From day one, Ted Cruz will send Congress legislation to repeal Obamacare and replace it with legislation that will reform health care by moving toward a number of free market concepts. President Cruz will replace Obamacare with a plan including Health Savings Accounts for all, elimination of the provisions against affordable catastrophic health insurance plans, tort reform that would eliminate frivolous lawsuits and bring down the costs of medical malpractice insurance for doctors, and the allowing of purchasing of medical insurance across state lines to create a real health care marketplace, as opposed to a failed Washington D.C. web site the administration fraudulently calls a “marketplace” for health insurance under Obamacare.
President Cruz would pursue strong regulatory reform that would get needless regulations out of the way of American businesses from being able to create good paying rewarding employment opportunity. And with the repeal of Obamacare that destroyed tens of millions of full-time jobs by converting them to part-time jobs, full-time employment will come back again under a strong economic recover we will see within the first term of the presidency of Ted Cruz.
President Ted Cruz will implement an all-of-the-above energy policy that would involving drilling and fracking for our own sources of oil, natural gas, and clean-burning coal so we truly will become energy-independent rather than reliant on the likes of Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries. Ted Cruz will not subsidize expensive and un-marketable renewable energy, but under the robust economy that his policies will create, it won’t be long before market-viable renewable energy will be created by the private sector, under the President Ted Cruz, that will come about much sooner than any big government subsidized renewable energy program will ever create.
American will be back again, under President Ted Cruz. He will appoint Supreme Court Justices and federal judges that will uphold The Bill of Rights and all of our Constitutionally protected freedoms. Under Ted Cruz, American will win again and the entire world will know it. Peace and stability around the globe will return when the world’s lone superpower, the United States of America, will once again step up to the role of being the world’s leading advocate of peace, prosperity, and justice around the world. As Dinesh D’Souza chronicles in the documentary America: Imagine the World Without Her, the United States has much to be proud of in our history, and American Exceptionalism is very real, and will once against be celebrated under President Ted Cruz, as it was under President Ronald Reagan.
And the free market economy, which as Ryan Houck of FreeMarketAmerica says of it in his great viral video, “the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class and create lasting prosperity.” The Free Market truly is the only way we can have a large and growing middle class and have prosperity within reach of the highest percentage of our population that desire it. Socialism can never do this, and only fails when we run out of other people’s money to steal from Peter and pay it to Paul, and Ted Cruz understands economics quite well and knows this.
It would be clear in the first 100 days, that the policies advanced by Ted Cruz as president will help improve the quality of life of all Americans. Ted Cruz as president will truly reignite the promise of America. Ted Cruz will truly bring back the American Dream.
