Cruz explains the connection between Robin Hood and Confiscatory Taxation

"But the former governors who were before me laid burdens on the people, and took from them bread and wine, besides forty shekels of silver. Yes, even their servants bore rule over the people, but I did not do so, because of the fear of God."
Nehemiah 5:15



  • "In his opening, Bernie invoked Robin Hood."
  • "Robin Hood was 'robbing' the tax collectors, who were collecting too much [sic] taxes from the working men and women, and taking it for the rich."
  • "In Bernie's analogy, it is the Democrats who are King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham."
  • "Robin Hood is saying: 'Tax collectors, stop hammering the people who are struggling, who are laboring in the fields, who are working; stop taking it to the castle, to give out to your buddies'."
  • "The Democrats love corporate welfare."
  • "When you have Washington giving out goodies, the big guys do great; it's the little people who hurt."
  • "Bernie didn't disagree with what I said...."
    • Note: Goes on to make point about big government fueling 'economic inequality.'
