Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz met spoke to supporters during a rally in the town of Peterborough, New Hampshire on Sunday, following his victory in the Republican Iowa caucuses.
While addressing to the crowd, Cruz compared the current political situation in the US with Jimmy Carter's administration, stating it has the "same failed economic policy, same feckless and naive foreign policy. In fact the very same countries, Russia and Iran, openly laughing at and mocking the President of the United States."
Cruz also promised to reform the tax system to a simple flat tax "where every American can fill out our taxes on a postcard."
The Republican presidential candidate went on to stress that his popularity was because voters were "looking for a candidate who has been willing to take on the bipartisan corruption of Washington," adding "not just the Democrats, but to take on leaders of my own party, to stand up to both of them and say 'No'."
