The economy is not seamless and as all have known for some time now it is better to be where taxes are low and unions are scarce. Consider this recent example, as reported by Michelle R. Smith of the AP:
Senator John Cornyn, as well as all other 44 Republicans in the Senate, introduced the balanced budget consitutional amendment today in the Senate.
"With more than $16 trillion of debt, including nearly $6 trillion since President Obama took office, we are facing nothing short of a fiscal crisis. Everyone agrees that our nation is on an unsustainable path, but unfortunately as we saw last night, President Obama is incapable of tempering his appetite for more and more spending," says Cornyn in a statement.
Senate candidate Ted Cruz is projected to win the Republican primary runoff for U.S. Senate in Texas. With 37 percent of precincts reporting, Cruz has won nearly 53 percent of the vote over Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, who has won just under 46 percent. Dewhurst won the four-way GOP primary in May, but did not win the necessary 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff with Cruz.
A final poll of Texas Republican voters from PPP shows Ted Cruz leading David Dewhurst by 10 points in Tuesday's runoff election for U.S. Senate. Cruz, the former state solicitor general and favorite of conservative activists, has 52 percent support compared to 42 percent for Dewhurst, the lieutenant governor. Here's more from PPP's Tom Jensen, who says a Cruz victory is "likely":
Republican Senate candidate David Dewhurst received the endorsement Tuesday of former Dallas mayor Tom Leppert. Leppert, who came in third in the May 29 GOP primary behind Dewhurst and Ted Cruz, did not qualify to run in this month's runoff election.
Leppert's endorsement came shortly after a heated televised debate between Dewhurst and Cruz:
Former Texas solicitor general Ted Cruz has taken a four-point lead over Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst in the Republican Senate primary runoff race, according to a PPP poll released Thursday. PPP found that 49 percent of likely Texas GOP runoff voters support Cruz, while 44 percent support Dewhurst.
Ted Cruz is leading David Dewhurst in the Republican primary runoff for U.S. Senate in Texas, according to a new internal poll released by the Cruz campaign. Forty-nine percent of respondents said they support Cruz, with 40 percent supporting Dewhurst.
