Ted Cruz on Jobs
A: The private sector creates jobs. But government can kill jobs. Extending unemployment benefits does exacerbate the jobless situation, because it subsidizes unemployment and increases the tax burdens on those who are employed. We should reform our tax code to be flatter and fairer, and pass a strong Balanced Budget Amendment to stop out-of-control government spending and debt. 25 million Americans are out of work because of foolish federal policies that are destroying jobs; I will lead the fight to reduce the burdens on small business and to unleash new jobs and vibrant economic growth.
