The Real Ted CruzSubmitted by Mauibrad on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 00:37
Probably few are aware that Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi is a vice president for Goldman Sachs. Would they be more disturbed to know about her work on the independent task force that wrote “Building a North American Community” which was sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations. Her bio in that report says, “HEIDI S. CRUZ is an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas. She served in the Bush White House under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative. Prior to government service, Ms. Cruz was an investment banker with J.P. Morgan in New York City.”
I found a copy of the task force report here: http://www.cfr.org/canada/building-north-american-community/.... You can click on the link for the English pdf version for a free copy of the report if you’re interested. In any case, a man married to a Wall Street investment banker with ties to the Bush administration and the CFR is not the vision that comes to mind when you see Ted Cruz and yet that is who he is.
