Senator Cruz’ Dad speaks out
Citizen Link - Bethany Monk - 10/4/2013
Texas Pastor Rafael Cruz wasn’t at all surprised when his son stood for more than 21 hours straight last month urging federal lawmakers to defund Obamacare. He’s a man of principle, and it’s his nature, the elder Cruz said.
Obamacare, signed into law in March 2010, requires larger companies to offer health insurance to those who work 30 hours or more. If not, they face steep fines. Most Americans oppose the law. Pastor Cruz calls it the “worst thing” the American government has done.
Though he faced criticism from mainstream media, many say Cruz’ son, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz from Texas, stood up for Americans across the country when he gave his “marathon speech” on the Senate floor.
Rafael Cruz, director of Purifying Fire Ministries, helped with his son’s Senate race last year, and he continues to deliver speeches across the country on religious freedom and pro-family issues. Last weekend, CitizenLink co-sponsored his speeches in Thornton and Colorado Springs, Colo. Pastor Cruz took some time to talk with CitizenLink.
