Sen. Ted Cruz pushes ‘Opportunity Conservatism’
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was on FOX News Sunday this morning. When asked about the future of the Republican Party Cruz said the answer was to retrench conservative values with “Opportunity Conservatism.”
From the video:
“I think it’s exactly the right way to go. Because conservative policies work and they improve opportunity. They are the avenue for climbing the economic dream. And, what I have been talking about for many years is opportunity conservatism. That every policy should focus like a laser on easing the means of assent up the economic ladder. We should be championing the 47%, to take that now infamous comment. Look, the great thing about America, look Americans don’t want to be dependent on government. Dependency saps the spirit. It doesn’t work. Americans want to stand on their own two feet and the best way to do that is to have policies that allow entrepreneurs and small businesses to thrive and to create jobs and advance the American dream.
