#1 Ted Cruz: Americans Want The Government To Butt Out by Eglman 29.01.2014 09:13


After the State of the Union speech Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News with Megyn Kelly and said that “Americans would like the government to butt out.” I’m one of those Americans. Wouldn’t you love to be able to just tell the government to butt out of your business? Butt out of your health care? Butt out of your wallet?

Here’s the video, a partial transcript is below. He had a lot more to say about the policies of President Obama.

“Well, it’s interesting. There was very little action there that was actually responsive to what the American people are feeling and what they’re experiencing.

“If you listen to what he [the President] said tonight, he didn’t say a word that acknowledged that the Obama economic policies resulted in the lowest labor force participation since 1978, millions of Americans have lost his jobs because of the Obama economic policies and sadly, tonight, he redoubled on people who are struggling most to achieve the American dream.

“We’ve had an awful lot of government focused on the lives of the American people, spying on our cell phones and on our emails, whether it’s the NSA, or the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or the HHS, or the IRS.

“You’re right, Megyn, a lot of Americans would like the government to butt out. But even more importantly, would like the government to stop putting massive regulations, massive taxes that are killing small businesses and killing jobs.

“Obamacare is the biggest job killer in the country. It was striking tonight throughout an hour plus long speech–the President didn’t say a single word to the over 5 million Americans who had their health insurance cancelled because of Obamacare. he left them in the cold.

“If he thinks Americans want action, what they’d like is for the federal government to stop taking away their health insurance, taking away their jobs, forcing them into part time work, and sadly he provided no relief whatever on those grounds.”
