America's Renewable Future Launches Radio Ad Underlining Cruz's Hypocrisy

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 16:37:29 CST

America's Renewable Future Launches Radio Ad Underlining Cruz's Hypocrisy America’s Renewable Future (ARF) has launched another radio ad to point out Sen. Ted Cruz’s hypocrisy on oil subsidies and that he is nothing more than a typical Washington politician. The five-figure ad is a reminder to Iowa caucus-goers that Cruz cannot be trusted in the last days leading up to the Iowa caucuses and at a time when the prominence of the issues of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and ethanol are at an all time high.

“We’re seeing a barrage of typical misinformation and disproven smears by the oil industry and its defenders in a desperate attempt to confuse Iowa voters and spin the issue of the RFS,” said ARF State Director Eric Branstad. “It just goes to show the strength of the issue and won’t change the fact that the RFS is a sound policy supported by Iowans who care about the strides we’ve made in reducing our dependence on foreign oil, reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, and not least in creating hundreds of thousands of American jobs.”

ARF is working on turning out its more than 52,000 pledged caucus-goers on Feb.1 and reminding voters that all 12 of the 14 candidates on both the Republican and Democratic side are pro-RFS and that Sens. Cruz and Rand Paul are anti-RFS.

The radio ad focuses on Cruz’s hypocrisy in relation to his latest attempt to confuse Iowa voters by claiming that he is in favor of ending preferential treatment for the oil industry. “Cruz has never authored or voted for legislation to fully repeal oil subsidies and he’s had multiple positions on ethanol since coming to Iowa all of which were bad, but all inconsistent,” added Branstad, “Cruz is bought and paid for by the oil industry and he’s proving he’s nothing more than a typical politician.”


Ted Cruz is getting nervous because he’s finally being exposed as just another Washington politician who Iowans can’t trust.

Ted Cruz CLAIMS he’s not in Big Oil’s pocket and that he wants to level the energy playing field. Yet, He has introduced three bills to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard, but has never taken a single step to end Big Oil’s 103 years of taxpayer subsidies. What a hypocrite.

Ted Cruz says he’s not beholden to special interests, but his ethanol statements indicate he is paid for by Big Oil.

Typical Washington politician.

Since beginning his campaign for president, Ted Cruz has been on just about every side but the right side of the ethanol issue.

That’s classic D.C. double talk.

Ted Cruz should be nervous.

Iowans see him for what he is – a Big Oil politician running for President who will say and do anything to try to get elected.
