Sen. Cruz took $70,000.00 from Goldman Sachs for his 2012 campaign.  Goldman Sachs was the fourth largest contributor to his campaign.  Here's a quote from an article in Bloomberg that was published on February 6, 2013:

"Goldman Sachs Group Inc. President Gary Cohn said he’s 'bullish' on China... 'You can absolutely still make money off Chin'ese banks,' Cohn, 52, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Susan Li in Hong Kong yesterday, without naming specific banks. 'We are very positive, optimistic, but cautious, about where China’s going.'

So, Sen. Cruz, why haven't you returned the money from Goldman Sachs, coming as it did from a company doing hundreds of millions of dollars of business with the Communist Chinese?  Why didn't you know about this connection?  And if you did know, why did you take the money?

The question must be asked: Is Cruz knowingly taking money from the Communist Chinese government, even if that money has been laundered through an intermediary, and is he attacking Sen. Hagel and others to cover up his own hidden agenda?  I think an investigation is called for. It may turn out that the people of Texas unwittingly elected a mole for the Chinese Government to the U. S. Senate.

This diary, of course, is completely satirical in nature, though the $70,000.00 donation and Goldman's relationship with China are factual.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
