Ted Cruz: Dems Told Single Moms 'Tough Luck' On Tax Relief

Every Republican should have defended tax reform as strongly as Sen. Cruz.

When the Republicans need a fiery orator to make a point, the most obvious senator that comes to mind is Ted Cruz…

Cruz pointed out that the bill doubles the child tax from $1,000 to $2,000, a provision that would particularly help single parents, yet “Every single Democrat in this body is going to say to the single mom ‘tough luck. We aren’t cutting your taxes,’” Cruz said. He also noted that his amendment to the bill includes an expansion of educational savings plans to allow parents to spend the educational IRA money on K-12 schools.
