Ted Cruz & ObamaCare! CNN’s Dana Bash Did Superlative Job Interviewing Mr. “Anti-ObamaCare”. She Backed Him Into A Political Corner From Which He Could Not Escape Despite Never Admitting In So Many Words That He Was Signing Up For ‘ObamaCare’. He Would Only Say He’s “On The Federal Exchange With Millions Of Others” (That’s ObamaCare, Regardless Of Terminology). Republicans Call It That So They Can’t Evade Their Own Designation When It Becomes ‘Inconvenient’! The ‘Affordable Care Act’ Is ObamaCare Now, Mr. Presidential Candidate & Anti-ObamaCare Standard Bearer! Take That “Government Subsidy” To Which You Are Entitled Under ObamaCare That You Claim To Hate So Much – Go Ahead, Make My Day – I Dare You! – GOP HYPOCRISY REPORT








Ted Cruz says he will enroll in ObamaCare 01:47

(CNN) Ted Cruz is going on ObamaCare.


The newly announced Republican presidential candidate told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday that he will sign up for health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act — a law he has been on a crusade to kill.


“We’ll be getting new health insurance and we’ll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we’ll be on the federal exchange with millions of others on the federal exchange,” Cruz said.


Asked whether he would accept the government subsidy available to lawmakers and congressional staffers for their health care coverage through the ACA, Cruz said he will “follow the text of the law”.

Tabacco: He means, “Yes”, although that WORD eludes his lips in the Interview!



“I strongly oppose the exemption that President Obama illegally put in place for members of Congress because (Senate Minority Leader) Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats didn’t want to be under the same rules as the American people”, Cruz said, before repeating: “I believe we should follow the text of the law.”



Tabacco: I looked up ‘Hypocrisy’ in Webster’s and found that very quote above along with Cruz’s picture! (That’s poetic license, not Political Hypocrisy!)


Cruz’s admission comes one day after CNN first reported that the senator would no longer have access to health benefits through his wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs. Heidi Cruz, a managing director at the firm’s Houston office, has gone on unpaid leave for the duration of the senator’s presidential campaign and will not have access to the company’s benefits during that time.


Cruz’s campaign appeared caught by surprise Monday by questions about the senator’s health care. Asked how Cruz’s family would be covered after his wife lost her Goldman Sachs benefits, Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler repeatedly answered that he didn’t know.


It’s a deeply ironic development for the Texas conservative firebrand, who vaulted to fame during his few years in the Senate in large part by denouncing President Barack Obama’s landmark health care law.


Cruz denied that there was anything ironic about the move, saying he was simply following the law.


“I believe we should follow the text of every law, even (a) law I disagree with”, Cruz told CNN. “It’s one of the real differences — if you look at President Obama and the lawlessness, if he disagrees with a law he simply refuses to follow it or claims the authority to unilaterally change.”

Tabacco: What President doesn’t attempt to do that! I wonder if Cruz ever heard of

“Midnight Appointments”!


Cruz also said he will continue advocating for repealing the law.


“What is problematic about Obamacare is that it is killing millions of jobs in this country and has killed millions of jobs”, Cruz said. “It has forced millions of people into part time work. It has caused millions of people to lose their insurance, to lose their doctors and to face skyrocketing insurance premiums. That is unacceptable.”

Tabacco: Perhaps Cruz would like to give SPECIFICS on those ‘Unexplained Assertions” just as Tabacco does! I have neither the time nor the inclination to ASSUME what he means. Besides I have no proof he didn’t pull those “Unexplained Assertions” out of his rectal cavity!


Dana Bash only MISSED 2 salient opportunities:



1- Question: Since you, Ted Cruz, prefer

Privatized Healthcare to ObamaCare,

Why have you chosen ObamaCare

For Yourself?



2- Dana Bash tried to keep a straight face as Cruz squirmed on his hypocritical couch – but she failed miserably!


Had Ted Cruz lived in the 18th or 19th century when Slavery was the Law of the Land, even though it was BAD LAW, Cruz would have follow(ed) the text of every law, even (a) law I disagree with”.Cruz would have been a “Slave Owner” – Ted Cruz has “NEGOTIABLE MORALITY”! In this respect, Cruz is typical of ALL Republican Politicians!

Republicans have a SPECIFIC Plan to REPEAL, but nothing SPECIFIC to REPLACE! At least GOPers are UNWILLING to expose it! Republicans ALWAYS prefer to SPRING their PRO-BIZ INITIATIVES without “Foreplay”!


Then again, why would they! “Transparency” and “Republicans” in the same sentence? Not!








Conversely, why are there so MANY Middleclass & Poor Republicans?


The Answer to that Question is Simple:



Republican Rank & File do NOT Vote
