On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was interviewed by the Daily Caller, saying that Congress needs to push defunding Planned Parenthood.

The Daily Caller has the details.
“We promised the voters we would do it, and I think we need to deliver on that promise,” Cruz told TheDC after a CNN-sponsored debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders on the Affordable Care Act at The George Washington University.
When pressed on a specific timeframe, Cruz simply said, “At this point … what I am urging President Trump, the administration and leaders in Congress is, let’s do what we said we would do. Let’s honor our commitments.”
Throughout the GOP primary, other candidates like Sen. Ted Cruz made defunding Planned Parenthood a key part of their platforms, taking firm pro-life stances and vowing to reduce unnecessary federal spending.
It is why I voted for Cruz during the primary. He keeps his promises and is one of the most conservative politicians in Congress. We do not need “campaign” candidates who say one thing, then flip-flop after being elected.
Hopefully, he can influence President Trump to defund Planned Parenthood. He said he is also open to defunding it. We have a chance now that Obama, the most pro-abortion president we have ever had, is out of office.
With the GOP controlling the House, Senate, and the presidency, this is the best opportunity that we have, so let us not waste it. I am tired of too many moderates not fulfilling the promises made during the campaign.
