41st Conservative Political Action Conference  ...Next >
March 6, 2014--Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) led off the conference, joking that "by virtue of you being here today, tomorrow morning each and every one of you are going to be audited by the IRS, so I appreciate the courage of your convictions."

"How do we win elections? In the contrast between corrupt Washington and the American people, we stand with the American people. We stand with a straight-forward and bold and positive agenda to inspire the young, to inspire women, to inspire Hispanics — to inspire everybody."

Cruz outlined ten points in his agenda: defend the Constitution, abolish the IRS, expand energy and high-paying jobs, expand school choice, repeal Dodd-Frank, audit the Federal Reserve, pass a strong balanced budget amendment, "repeal every single word of ObamaCare," stop the president's lawlessness, and end corporate welfare and crony capitalism.  (transcript)
