You think Ted Cruz is a conservative because he votes for tax cuts to tout in the next election? Ted Cruz does not deliver. Federal spending increased every year, and is up 20% total, since he joined Congress - CBO data. How much of a pay raise have you had in 6 years? In fact, total Federal spending increased by MORE than our current deficit under Ted Cruz's tenure in the Senate. If he had done his job, we wouldn't be bleeding red ink.
