Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) blasted Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), accusing him of being “owned by Goldman Sachs.”
According to Politico:
“You take a guy like Cruz, people are liking the Cruz — they think he’s for the free market, and [in reality] he’s owned by Goldman Sachs. I mean, he and Hillary have more in common than we would have with either Cruz or Trump or any of them so I just don’t think there is much picking,” Paul said of the Texas senator on Fox Business’ “Varney & Company” on Friday.
The father of now-former 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) also had some kind words for Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT):
“On occasion, Bernie comes up with libertarian views when he talks about taking away the cronyism on Wall Street, so in essence he’s right, and occasionally he voted against war,” the former Texas congressman said when asked if there was a candidate who was truly for the free market.
“It’s hard to find anybody — since Rand is out of it — anybody that would take a libertarian position, hardcore libertarian position on privacy, on the war issue and on economic policy,” Paul added.
