    NH Rally: Cruz Promises Changes in Amnesty, Healthcare, IRS, ISIS

    Thursday, February 4, 2016 12:34 PM
    By: Bill Hoffmann

    Ted Cruz called on New Hampshire voters to give him a primary win on Tuesday as he promised to "reignite the promise of America" by repealing Obamacare, ending amnesty for illegal immigrants, securing the borders, and abolishing the IRS.

    "[It's] getting back to that fundamental idea that our kids will have a better life than we have and their kids will have a better life than they did," Cruz said during a Town Hall address in Portsmouth.

    The Texas senator — who called his surprise victory in the Iowa caucuses a triumph for "courageous conservatives all over this country — called out Hillary Clinton and her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    He said if the Democratic presidential frontrunner and her second-place rival get into the White House, they will "double down" on the same economic policies of President Barack Obama that have brought "misery, stagnation and malaise" to the nation's economy.

    Cruz also ridiculed billionaire developer Donald Trump, the national Republican presidential frontrunner who came in second in Iowa.

    "Donald Trump is very rattled right now. He told the entire world he was going to win Iowa and he didn't win … He said, 'How stupid can the people of Iowa be?'" Cruz told the crowd. "The next question is going to be, 'How stupid can the people New Hampshire... be?'"

    Cruz said Americans are "risking losing the greatest country in the world if we keep going the same way we're going," because of an "erosion of the rights guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution" — including religious freedoms and the right to bear arms.

    Cruz invoked the name of President Ronald Reagan eight times during his speech, saying that the nation's 40th president from 1981 to 1989 was not well liked by the establishment, but states like New Hampshire rallied behind him to get him into the White House.

    Cruz said that if elected president, he would overturn "every word of Obamacare," enact "common sense health care reform," and adopt a "simple flat tax."

    He added: "And when we do that, we should abolish the IRS."

    He also ripped into the federal government's lawsuit against the Little Sisters of the Poor Catholic charity for not providing birth control services for its employees.

    "If you're litigating against nuns … you've probably done something wrong," Cruz said. "If I'm elected president … the persecution of religious liberty ends today."

    He charged that President Obama had enacted "lawless executive actions" to curb the right to bear arms "and allowed for Americans' right to privacy to be compromised.

    "Leave your cell phones on … I want President Obama to hear every word we say," he joked, in a reference to everybody's phones being bugged.

    He called for securing the nation's borders, ending amnesty and sanctuary cities, reforming the Department of Veteran's Affairs, getting rid of Common Core, and crushing the Islamic State.

    He said America's reputation as the strongest nation in the world has been severely compromised over the past seven years of the Obama administration.

    "Where we are today are very much like the late 1970s under the Jimmy Carter administration," he said.

    He called for voters to kick out of Washington "career politicians that get in bed with lobbyists," charging that Trump was from the same cloth because he was a "dealmaker."

    He also called on more federal funding to find cures for Alzheimer's disease, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes "and a streamlining of the FDA's approval process of new lifesaving drugs that are already available in Europe."

    Cruz is currently second in the Real Clear Politics average of New Hampshire polls, at nearly 12 percent.

    Both, Cruz and Trump, need to immediately desist with the ripping each other apart tactic and focus their energy on Marco Rubio!

    Agreed. I think Trump & Cruz should press the rewind button to when they were more friendly to one another.

    I think that semi-friendship separated them from the establishment and more favorable with potential new voters.

    Yep, I felt better about both of them when they were in the "bromance" stage of their relationship. This constant tearing into each other is only making rubio seem more attractive to some undecided and Independent voters (IMO). That is not a good thing.
