Cruz: ‘we’ll take money from anyone’

In an interview with CNBC, Ted Cruz declared “we’ll take money from anyone.”

( Politico By Nick Gass )

Ted Cruz doesn’t care where the money comes from.

Even as his campaign has pushed a populist message and he has railed against Wall Street “crony capitalism” repeatedly, the Texas senator indicated Friday that he is not beneath accepting donations from anyone, including from members of the financial industry, which has already contributed $12 million to his campaign.

Appearing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Friday, Cruz again referred to the Dodd-Frank Act as benefiting large banks at the expense of the “little guy,” or smaller community banks. Co-anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin then pressed the candidate about his “rivals” criticizing him for soliciting donations from the same people whose industry has spoken out on the campaign trail.

“Look, we’ll take money from anyone. In fact, Andrew, I would love a check right now. It’s $2,700, or you could go to,” Cruz said.

    Endorse it and then turn it over to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Foundation and maybe they will remember him in the end…or rear end. 🙂

        Shame? Cruz has lots of shame underneath but it’s not within his consciousness. He has no moral compass at all. He’s cheat, use trickery and anything else he can to win the nomination. I don’t call that kind of person a very decent one. Just think of how he’d be as the prez. He’d be just like Obama, in my opinion..
