Last Sunday sen Cruz talked about why conservative principles work: “The reason why I’m a conservative is because conservative policies work and they improve opportunities. 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 ascent up the economic ladder.” He focused on that famous 47%.
In 2002 government provided Planned Parenthood $202 Million in grants. That number increased to $543 in 2011, Planned Parenthood being the largest provider of abortion in America.
Mammograms are not a service and contraceptive services have have declined 12% since 2009. The organization admits to profits from abortion of about $400 Million from 2009 through 2011.
Sen Cruz: “Look, the great thing about Americans, Americans don’t want to be dependent upon 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 business to thrive and to create jobs and advance the American dream.”
