[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the first candidate to officially announce his campaign for the 2016 presidential election. During a recent interview with Breitbart News in Houston, Cruz revealed what what he would do in his first act as president should he win the election. He said that the first thing on his agenda would be to undo all of Barack Obama’s executive orders.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Cruz not only addressed the unconstitutional executive orders that Obama has already done, but also elaborated on the danger that lies ahead for America during the last 20 months of Obama’s second term as President of the United States.
“The next 20 months are going to be very dangerous because President Obama, unfortunately, seems to have decided to disregard the United States Congress and disregard the American people and instead is trying to force through as much of his extreme agenda as possible via unilateral executive action—and I think we’re going to see that only accelerate through the end of 2016 with more and more unconstitutional executive orders, more regulatory abuse and more and more efforts to go to the United Nations and foreign war tribunals in an effort to end run Congress. In January 2017, we will have a new president and if I am elected president, the very first thing I intend to do on the first day is rescind every single unconstitutional or illegal executive action from President Obama.”
Obama has made it clear to the American people and to Congress that he will move forward with his agenda with or without the assistance of Congress, stating time and again that he has a pen and he has a phone and will use them if Congress does not cave into his agenda. To this, Cruz had some strong words.
“President Obama is fond of saying he has a pen and he has a phone,” Cruz said. “Well, live by the pen and die by the pen. Every illegal executive action that he puts in place can be undone in an instant by the next president through the same mechanism. The proper avenue for creating law in this country is not unilateral decree. It is rather passing legislation through Congress that is signed into law by president pursuant to the dictates of the Constitution.”
Cruz was in Houston this week to open his campaign headquarters.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
