Texas Senator Ted Cruz strikes back against Mayor Emanuel's bullying

In an open letter to four CEO's, Texas Senator Ted Cruz today blasted Mayor Rahm Emanuel's government bullying of two financial institutions; Bank of America and TD Bank.  Emanuel recently threatened to stop city business with these two institutions in his own letter last week.

"In Texas, we have a more modest view of government. We do not accept the notion that government should behave as bullies, trying to harass or pressure private companies into enlisting in a political lobbying campaign."

This story illustrates how Chicago Democrat Ward Boss style tactics are playing out on the national level.
