'Repeal Every Single Word of Common Core': Cruz Reacts to Jeb Bush Interview
On "The Kelly File," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reacted to Megyn's interview with Jeb Bush.
Cruz began by saying that he's a "fan" of Bush, crediting him for candor and consistency.
He said he thinks that they will have a clear, straight-up debate about the right direction for the Republican Party and the country.
Two areas where Cruz and Bush strongly disagree and are likely to debate are immigration and education.
Concerning the controversy over immigration reform, Cruz reiterated that he believes amnesty is wrong and unfair.
"This is where I disagree with the many 2016 candidates who have embraced a pathway to citizenship," Cruz said.
Cruz also said that he disagrees with Bush's stance on Common Core.
"I believe we should repeal every single word of Common Core," he stated. "I think education is far too important to be governed by unelected bureaucrats in Washington. It should be at the state level or even better at the local level."
Megyn also asked Cruz if he would have authorized the War in Iraq. He responded that he would not.
"I think foreign policy ought to be dictated by the vital national security interests of the United States," he said. "It's not the job of our soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines to transform foreign nations into Democratic utopias."
