We Need Ted Cruz
On Friday, candidates for US Senate in Texas squared off in a debate.

The Need For New Talking Points #EERS
Tonight on the show I’m going to talk about the need for new talking points on taxes. i think a lot of Republicans don’t get the issue and I’m going to do my best to explain why.
