Economics Edit

Sen. Cruz is an enthusiastic advocate for pro-growth policies to create more opportunities for all Americans.[2]

A key component of Sen. Cruz’s pro-growth agenda is the American Energy Renaissance Act, which empowers the private sector to create more jobs and removes federal impediments to exploration, development, and trade.

Additionally, Sen. Cruz is leading the fight to protect the Internet as a platform for innovation, defending it from job-killing taxes and regulations and the corrosive influence of undemocratic nations. He is a firm believer that the constitutional rights of American citizens should apply to activities conducted offline and online alike.

He has consistently voted against raising the debt ceiling, insisting that any debt ceiling increase be accompanied by structural reforms, such as a balanced budget amendment, to better control the way Washington spends money. Sen. Cruz believes that Washington’s out-of-control spending robs prosperity from our children and grandchildren, and that economic growth necessitates a smaller, less regulation-heavy federal government.
