One day after announcing himself as presidential candidate, Texas Senator Ted Cruz fired a few shots across the bow of Wall Street, and the firm that employs his wife as managing director.

They give favors to Wall Street and big business and that's why I've been an outspoken opponent of crony capitalism..." [Bloomberg via Lauren LaCapra]
