Ted Cruz in CNN 2015 GOP primary debate


On Abortion: Planned Parenthood sells body parts of unborn human beings

The Planned Parenthood videos are horrifying. I encourage every American to watch them. Seeing Planned Parenthood heartlessly bartering and selling the body parts of human beings, and then ask yourself, "are these my values?" Planned Parenthood essentially confesses to multiple felonies. It is a felony with ten years' jail term to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit. That's what these videos. We shouldn't send $500 million of taxpayer money to fund an ongoing criminal enterprise.

On Foreign Policy: Don't let world courts bind American sovereignty

Q: Governor Kasich accuses you of playing to the crowd and being inexperienced.

CRUZ: Well, let's be clear when it comes to experience. What President Obama wants to do is he's run to the United Nations, and he wants to use the United Nations to bind the United States, and take away our sovereignty. Well, I spent five and a half years as a Solicitor General of Texas, the lead lawyer for the state, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, and I went in front of the Supreme Court, and took on the World Court of the United Nations in a case called Medellin v. Texas, and we won a historic victory saying the World Court, and the U.N., has no power to bind the United States, and no President of the United States, Republican or Democrat, has the authority to give away our sovereignty.

On Foreign Policy: Move American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

Q: How will the world look different once your Air Force One is parked in the hangar of your presidential library, like Reagan's here?

A: If I'm elected president our friends and allies across the globe will know that we stand with them. The bust of Wi You want to know what I'll do as president? It is real simple. We'll kill the terrorists, we'll repeal Obamacare, and we will defend the Constitution, every single word of it. Ted Cruz

On Health Care: I regret voting for John Roberts because of ObamaCare vote

I've known John Roberts for 20 years, he's an amazingly talented lawyer, but, yes, it was a mistake when he was appointed to the Supreme Court. George W. Bush appointed John Roberts, and let me give you the consequences of that. It is true that after George W. Bush nominated John Roberts, I supported his confirmation. That was a mistake and I regret that.

On Homeland Security: On day one, rip to shreds the Iranian nuclear deal

The next president will inherit President Obama's Iran deal. The single biggest national security threat right now is the threat of a nuclear Iran. This deal will send over $100 billion to the Ayatollah Khamenei, making the Obama administration the world's leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism. This deal will accelerate Iran's acquiring nuclear weapons. If I am elected president, on the very first day in office, I will rip to shreds this catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.

On Jobs: Pass a flat tax and abolish the IRS, and jobs will follow

Q: How will the world look different once your Air Force One is parked in the hangar of your presidential library, like Reagan's here?

A: If I'm elected president, here at home, we'll reignite the promise of America. Young people coming out of school, with student loans up to their eyeballs, will find instead of no jobs, two, three, four, five job opportunities. How will that happen? Through tax reform. We'll kill the terrorists, we'll repeal Obamacare, and we will defend the Constitution, every single word of it.
