Sen. Cruz Highlights Job Creation and Economic Expansion with Dallas Business Leaders

DALLAS, Texas – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today held a roundtable discussion with members of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) along with additional business and economic development leaders in Dallas, where he discussed Texas’ dynamic and inviting economic climate.

After his roundtable with YPO, Sen. Cruz toured Irving’s Dr Pepper Snapple Group sales, manufacturing, and distribution facility and met with company executives.

“My number one priority in the Senate from day one has been jobs and economic growth. And that’s true for a very simple reason: that’s the top priority of Texas,” Sen. Cruz said. “Across the state, if we have our economy growing and thriving, if we have small businesses prospering, expanding, and hiring, that’s how we solve every other problem. Texas is home to some of the most innovative and successful companies in the world because we’ve embraced commonsense, free-market values that promote prosperity. It’s encouraging to see so many young business leaders able to expand their companies and create jobs in Dallas and throughout the entire state.

“Unfortunately, in today’s regulatory environment, businesses large and small are forced to jump through countless hoops, making it harder to succeed. I look forward to continuing discussions with Texas’ robust business community so that together we can rein in Washington’s burdensome regulations and provide more jobs and opportunities for hardworking Americans.” 

The Young Presidents Organization represents a global community of leaders whose businesses employ more than 15 million people worldwide and generate $6 trillion in annual revenue.
