Ted Cruz Is For the Billionaires and Millionaries

Ted Cruz’s only interested in pleasing the millionaires and billionaires. According to the AP
Unlimited political cash would give rank-and-file conservative activists greater sway in picking their representatives, including the president, White Househopeful Ted Cruz told New Hampshire voters on Sunday.
Cruz, a first-term senator who represents Texas, said deep-pocketed donors should have the same rights to write giant campaign checks as voters have to put signs in their front yards. Both, Cruz said, were an example of political speech, and he added that “money absolutely can be speech.”
“I believe everyone here has a right to speak out on politics as effectively as possible,” Cruz said told a voter who asked him about the role of the super-rich in politics.
Cruz, making his first trip to New Hampshire this year, was using a two-day visit to this early voting state to lay the groundwork for an expected presidential campaign. Three of the seven questions he took during a town hall-style meeting were statements encouraging him to run for president.
Cruz steadfastly insisted he was not yet a presidential candidate and said he was merely considering it. “I am looking at it very seriously,” he said a day after making a campaign-style trip to South Carolina, another early nominating state.
After the session, one activist gave Cruz a blank check and told him to write it for whatever amount he needed.
My response to Mr. Cruz. No it does not. It does not help your average conservative upper-middle class conservative activist. On many issues, the opinions of conservative activists that represent the upper-middle class differ from the wealthy millionaires and billionaires. They cannot outpace the donation rate of the Koch Brothers and their ilk. Hard limits on both hard and soft money would go long away to prevent this.
While strict campaign contributions primarily would help the left, it would also let the average conservative voter have more influence over the candidates.
The GOP club of donors has ever shrunk throughout of the years leaving the average voter isolated from the rich and the powerful.
