Cruz promises more jobs, better pay

CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) – Texas Senator Ted Cruz says Pennsylvanians can expect more jobs and better pay if he’s elected President.

Cruz spoke to ABC27’s Dennis Owens on Friday after his address to the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, a gathering of conservatives at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg in Camp Hill.

“We’ll repeal every word of Obamacare, we’ll pass a simple flat tax, we’ll rein in the regulators, we’ll stop amnesty, and the effect of all that is we’re going to see millions and millions of high-paying new jobs, we’re going to see wages rising for Americans across this country, and we’ll see young people coming out of school with two, three, four, five job offers,” he said.

Cruz also spoke of recent heated comments he traded with GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who didn’t accept an invitation to speak at the conference.

“Other candidates have chosen to get really nasty, down in the gutter, get personal and engage in screaming and yelling and cursing and insults and indeed attack other people’s family members. None of that has any place in politics,” he said, adding that he has not “responded in kind.”

“I am keeping this campaign focused on issues,” he said. “If Hillary Clinton wins this election, tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians will lose their job. If I win this election, and I believe we’re going to, we’re going to see tens of thousands more Pennsylvanians getting jobs, seeing their wages going up, and seeing more opportunities in the future.”

Pennsylvania’s primary election is April 26.
