“Starting today, I no longer accept money from any corporate PAC. I urge my GOP colleagues to do the same,” said Senator Ted Cruz on Wednesday.
The Texan explained that for too long Republicans have allowed socialists to advance their agenda.
“For too long, Republicans have allowed the left & their big-business allies to attack our values & ship jobs overseas with no response. No more,” Cruz asserted.
Similarly, he explained, in an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal, that many companies have been allowed to work overseas, thus affecting domestic companies. Therefore, he considered that it is time for the Republicans to take action.
“We’ve allowed them to ship jobs overseas, attack gun rights and destroy our energy companies. We have let them smear Republicans without paying any price,” he noted.
Why won’t he accept corporate contributions?
Cruz referred to the election law in Georgia and how businessmen have criticized the measure. He pointed out that they have not read it and that is why they question the law. He argued that it does not infringe on the rights of Americans, but on the contrary, it guarantees transparency in elections.
“If these CEOs had actually read the bill, instead of parroting the radical left’s talking points, they would have discovered that they had no idea what they were talking about,” Cruz said.
