Cruz: All of America Needs to be a Real "Promise Zone"
January 9, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the follow statement regarding President Obama's "Promise Zones" announcement:
"It's altogether fitting that President Obama is today talking about income inequality because income inequality has increased dramatically as a direct result of his economic policies. Out-of-control government spending, debt, taxes, and regulations have killed millions of jobs. Unfortunately, rather than stop Washington's job-killing policies, President Obama proposes yet more government spending and debt. People need jobs. All of America needs to be a real 'Promise Zone'--with reduced barriers to small businesses creating private-sector jobs--and we should start by repealing every word of Obamacare, building the Keystone pipeline, abolishing the IRS, and rolling back abusive regulations.”
