“President Obama’s trip to Texas brings nothing with it but broken promises,” Cruz said in a statement, according to Politico. “He promised that Americans could keep their health care plans. We were told premiums would go down, that jobs would be created. And we now know these are all false promises.”

Cruz added, “President Obama should take his broken promises tour elsewhere so Texans can continue focusing on the solutions that have allowed our state to become and remain the nation’s economic and job creation powerhouse."

Obama later attended a Democratic fundraiser in Dallas, where he took a number of thinly veiled swipes at Cruz.
