Ted Cruz - Platform

Ted Cruz PlatformWhat is the Platform of Ted Cruz?


Ted Cruz is pro-life and would allow abortion only if the life of the mother is endangered. He wants to defund Planned Parenthood and prosecute it for criminal violations (see Abortion is Murder).


Ted Cruz has opined that the U.S. Constitution has been undermined by the U.S. Supreme Court's 2015 pro-homosexual marriage ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, and proposed to overturn it with a Constitutional amendment that prohibits homosexual marriage (see Bible verses about Homosexuality and Ages of Supreme Court Justices).


Ted Cruz proposes a 10% income tax on wages, replacing the corporate income tax with a flat 16% business tax, and eliminating the payroll tax, estate tax, inheritance tax and the tax on foreign-earned income. He opposes a higher minimum wage and proposes a savings account program that would allow individuals to save up to $25,000 per year, tax-deferred, for any purpose. He also proposes to eliminate the IRS, simplify the tax code and filing procedure, and favors a Constitutional amendment mandating balanced federal budget.

Foreign Policy

Ted Cruz appreciates the threat from Islam (see Islam: what the West needs to know), opposes the nuclear deal with Iran and favors a more aggressive fight against ISIS without being drawn into Syria's civil war.

He takes Vladimir Putin's ambitions seriously, favors aiding Ukraine in its war against Russia, imposing tough sanctions against Putin, and opposes rapprochement with Cuba.

Ted Cruz is pro-Israel and favors restoring our relationship with Israel, including moving our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In 2014, he told a gathering of Middle Eastern Roman Catholics and Orthodox church leaders who blame Israel for ISIS' violence: 

"Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians. If those in this room will not recognize that, then my heart weeps. If you hate the Jewish people you are not reflecting the teachings of Christ. And the very same people who persecute and murder Christians right now, who crucify Christians, who behead children, are the very same people who target Jews for their faith, for the same reason." - Ted Cruz, In Defense of Christians, September 10, 2014


Ted Cruz proposes building a wall along the border with Mexico and tripling the number of border patrol agents, and opposes amnesty for the illegal immigrants who are already in America (see America in Decline).


Ted Cruz opposes Obamacare and has led the fight in the U.S. Senate to block its implementation. If elected, he has vowed to repeal it and to replace it with market-based medical insurance.
