There has already been much rumbling over whether Presidential candidate Ted Cruz was a conservative outsider whom the establishment hated, or if he was simply a wolf in sheep’s clothing to give Republicans the illusion of choice. And on March 18, Cruz’s facade was completely shattered when he hired the individual behind the removal of Glass-Steagall as his economic adviser.
In addition to now bringing former Senator Phil Gramm to his campaign, Ted Cruz has done at least two things that have made voters question his stance as a ‘champion against the establishment’. First, he covered up a loan made with Goldman Sachs to help fund his Senatorial campaign and shrugged off the fact that his wife works for a bank that was bailed out during the 2008 Credit Crisis. And secondly, after months of rhetoric to bring forward a bill to audit the Fed, he chose to be absent on the day of the vote.
