Posted on 10/23/2013 8:12:54 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox News Greta Van Susteren Wednesday that it is becoming harder and harder for Democrats to defend ObamaCare as the problems plaguing the health law's sign-up website persist.
Cruz, R-Texas, said on On the Record that as Americans begin to see the law is not working, there have been few Democrats that have stepped in to defend the substance of the health care overhaul.
I think were seeing momentum and I think its ironic all the people that just a few weeks ago were saying Theres no way you can win this fight, theres no way we can do anything to stop ObamaCare and they also said Theres no way any Ds are going to flip, Cruz said. Were starting to see Democrats flip as this thing its a train wreck and its not working and in any political fight, when the truth is on your side, youre in a good situation and here the truth is this thing isnt working.
Cruz said that ObamaCare has bigger problems beyond the glitches plaguing the website.
Youve got the disasters with the website but more broadly youve got the impacts that are happening with jobs its the biggest job killer in the country, its forcing people into part-time work, Cruz said

Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want off/on this list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Rest easy, senator. You’ve been vindicated.
1. I want Obamacare to go away. Period.
2. I want the people who supported it to hang. Publicly.
That is all.
Actually, a Gallup poll showed that Democrat voter support had increased in the past month. If that’s the case, why should Democrat politicians back away?
Sen. Ted Cruz Goes On the Record with Greta Van Susteren to Discuss Stopping Obamacare
The ‘Rats and RINOs own it. They eat it. Go Ted!
A big thank you to Senator Cruz for caring about the American people first. Ted don’t seem to much care about any “legacy”. People like him don’t come along very often.
“Shoot, we’re not getting the truth from our side, the GOP Collaborator Caucus, why should we get it from anywhere else?”
I often go on here and read the Dems are unhappy with their policies, with Obama, yada yada yada.
Then I go on FB and Twitter and every Dem is esposing their policies as wonderful, ‘it’s the law of the land’ ‘they’ve been elected, get over it’
Lets not kid ourselves. Scamsters don’t change their spots.
Another phony poll.
Yep.....Senator Ted Cruz, senator Mike lee....you guys were right on...and have won a victory for the American people and nation!!!
Might I suggest that you, through some sensible method, put forth a petition (like Defund Obamacare) to impeach or force POTUS Barack Hussein Obama to resign!!! I believe millions of Americans would sign and endorse it!!!
just a thought.....I know it would probably not get Obama impeached...but....it would highlight how much he is ineffective with both leadership and management!!!
Cruz and Lee have to giggle a little every night, to themselves, over the Rinos who stabbed them in the back.
Question is how will the GOP make the Dems bleed from Obamacare just the way the Dems made the GOP bleed from the gov shutdown and impending bankruptcy of the US? Atleast the RINO’s know how vicious the Dems were and hopefully they are motivated to return the favor.
IMHO go to the SCOTUS and challenge the Obama admin if they decide to delay the individual mandate without Congressional approval. SCOTUS will need to determine how much of the law the POTUS can modify before the exec starts to impinge on the legislature. GOP should prevent the Dems from delaying enrollment so maximum pain is inflicted on the US public just the way the Dems inflicted pain on the US public during the gov shutdown. I recommend doing it via parliamentary process. Example tell Senate if they vote for a delay in the enrollment, the House should take their time to come up with their own version by holding hearings after hearings and then take their time to take up the Senate proposal. Delay means more and more people are thrown off their existing insurance and bottle necked waiting for their Obamacare while the deadline for penalties start to hit them. Pissed off voters will get angry at the Dems for creating a system that broke all the promises made. Delay till it is no longer advantages for GOP to delay, by then the Dems will settle for anything and GOP can demand for entitlement reforms, tax reforms and if possible defund Obamacare as the 2014 elections loom and Dem poll numbers tank. Obamacare is the weapon the GOP can use to change the Senate and expand the House. Hope they don’t fXXk (pardon mon francais) up on this opportunity handed to them.
Republicans will deal with the impending collapse of ObamaCare by.........
Introducing immigration reform.
Tone deaf idiots.
That idiot Issa.
They are using the term AFFORDABLE CARE ACT instead of OBAMACARE with the uninformed voter who ALL think these are two
different laws! This makes the poll skewed!!!
EVERYONE NEEDS TO MAN THE PHONES BURN THEM UP TO ISSA’S OFFICE NOW,!!!!,
If people think its bad because its not working, wait until they see what it does when it starts working
BRING IT ON
(reminded of the scene in “National Lampoon’s Family Vacation” where Clark W. Griswald is being upsold a crap car and the salesman says:
“If you think you don’t like it now, wait until you drive it!”
obamacare: You think you hate it now, but wait ‘til you drive it!”
Obamacare is like Chernobyl.
Its a lost cause, best to abandon it and let it rot away in the history books, you cannot live in a place contaminated with that much radiation.
Damn we have waited a long time for someone Like Cruz!
But let’s not forget Mike Lee...he and his staff are EXCELLENT. Its been a team effort by Cruz/Lee and a few others....and a lot of decent folks across the country(FReepers included).
Cruz has charisma and is a natural leader...and on our side!!! Keep fighting!
And now it’s time for the gang of 25 Republican traitors to publicly apologize to Cruz!
I love Ted, even he needs to wake up...perhaps he sees this was a staged train wreck planned from likely 15 yrs ago...I hope he sees that.
Ted Cruz will be standing tall in the middle of what will become the pile of 0-Care rubble.
If you like the website, just wait for the healthcare!
Ted Cruz was right.
I’d reverse the order of events.
Cruz set them up the bomb by getting out in front of it, and now they own it.
All those a-holes, dems, McStain, Rove, etc., owe Cruz an apology.
