In a new op-ed, Ted Cruz admits that he's been a servile lackey to his corporate masters, doing their bidding for money. jonathanchait writes

It’s one of his fairest attacks.

Cruz singles out the pro-voting-access stance of his (apparently former) allies as an irreparable breach. What’s interesting is Cruz’s own confession that, right up to this very moment, he was a servile lackey to his corporate masters, doing their bidding for money:

U.S. Adds Far Fewer Jobs Than Expected In April Chipotle says employees can make $100,000 after just 3 years on the job Army of fake fans boosts China’s messaging on Twitter

This is the point in the drama when Republicans usually shrug their shoulders, call these companies “job creators,” and start to cut their taxes. Not this time.This time, we won’t look the other way on Coca-Cola’s $12 billion in back taxes owed. This time, when Major League Baseball lobbies to preserve its multibillion-dollar antitrust exception, we’ll say no thank you. This time, when Boeing asks for billions in corporate welfare, we’ll simply let the Export-Import Bank expire.

Yes, you read that right. The Republican posture toward corporations that betray the public trust, Cruz admits, is usually to shrug it off and praise them as job creators. Even corporations that, by Cruz’s account, cheat on their taxes and get unjustified handouts from Congress! headtopics.com

This was Cruz’s own policy. Indeed, he was doing it as recently as yesterday:Now he is a changed man.This next passage is even more incredible. Cruz confesses that he accepted millions of dollars of cash from firms, in return for allowing them to attack American values and destroy American jobs:

In my nine years in the Senate, I’ve received $2.6 million in contributions from corporate political-action committees. Starting today, I no longer accept money from any corporate PAC. I urge my GOP colleagues at all levels to do the same.For too long, Republicans have allowed the left and their big-business allies to attack our values with no response. We’ve allowed them to ship jobs overseas, attack gun rights, and destroy our energy companies.

I am not exactly a fan of the modern Republican Party, and even I think it’s a little unfair and reductive to accuse them of allowing firms to destroy American jobs simply so they can vacuum up campaign donations. But Cruz is confessing to this. Not on a secretly recorded conversation. In public!

If Cruz’s tone of forced, macho indignation seems a little familiar, you may recognize it from his famous response to Donald Trump’s campaign claims that his father killed JFK and his wife is ugly. He pointed manfully at the camera and called Trump a “sniveling coward.” headtopics.com

jonathanchait Is he pledging not to take corporate money, ever again? Oh... I see... nope. Do you think this has anything to do with recent corporate questions about Republican dogma regarding police and voter rights? This change of heart may be temporary.

That, and taking away rights from middle and lower economic classes, hate, anger and lies.
