What a difference a job title ($695-an-hour corporate lawyer versus Senator) and a few years makes… Well, moves like this definitely help explain his rise to the top (of the American political pond where only the scum rises to the top).
What a total and utter hypocrite Ted Cruz is. Most people don’t even realize if this guy gets in, Goldman Sachs will literally be living in the White House. Oh sure, Cruz’s wife Heidi, who up until recently worked in Latin American mergers and acquisitions for the too-big-to-fail banking giant, took a little time off to help him run his campaign for president… but let’s stop kidding ourselves.
Heidi Cruz didn’t just sign the Council on Foreign Relations document for the North American Union; she even added an extra note to it to show her personal enthusiasm for flushing our national sovereignty down the toilet. Ted did say his wife was part of a pernicious nest of snakes over there at CFR… but at least she’s out in the open with her sold out corruption, unlike Ted who is completely crooked and yet wraps himself up in an American flag and talks about freedom and American values while he’s a closet Bush buddy on the same path that camp has always been on.
Wake up and don’t buy it.
Via Mother Jones:
But before entering politics, when he was a $695-an-hour lawyer in private practice, Cruz once delivered a full-throated defense of the stimulus spending he now condemns. In a little-noticed legal brief Cruz filed in July 2009 on behalf of the Texas Retired Teachers Association, he argued in favor of the legality and constitutionality of the Texas state government using federal stimulus money to cut a one-time $500 check to some 250,000 retired teachers. Moreover, Cruz touted the economic benefits of the payments and noted that they would help fulfill the mission of Obama’s stimulus. These $500 checks, Cruz wrote, “will directly impact the [Texas] economy…and will directly further the greater purpose of economic recovery for America.”
…Later in the brief, Cruz urged Abbott, a fierce foe of Obama, to green-light the stimulus-backed payments so as to best fulfill the Obama administration’s directive to spend stimulus dollars quickly “to help drive the nation’s economic recovery.” And he concluded the brief with yet another strong plea to approve the payments, insisting that the deal “will directly impact the economy in both the metropolitan and rural areas of Texas, and will directly further the greater purposes of economic recovery for America as envisioned by” the Obama administration.
Cruz and his firm made $38,000 off this argument. A spokeswoman said that Cruz was just doing his job at the time.
Uh-huh. Sure he was. Guess that makes it all okay to believe anything he says he’s going to do now that he’s running for the highest political office in the land, doesn’t it?
No matter who gets in, the oligarchy and megacorporations will win. Just like George Carlin said, the game is rigged.
