Skip to comments.D'oh! Cruz Campaign Concedes He Had Insurance Coverage All Along
Posted on 01/23/2016 11:27:47 PM PST by springwater13
In a reversal from claims made on the campaign trail, Ted Cruz's presidential campaign is now saying the senator and his family do have health insurance and never lost coverage. The late night Friday revelation came more than 24 hours after Cruz had told a New Hampshire audience that he and his family were without health insurance and were scrambling to obtain new coverage--and used the claim to slam Obamacare for the mess he was in.
In statements to Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal, campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier blamed Cruz's false assertion that his family had lost their health insurance on a misunderstanding. She said an insurance broker told Cruz that BlueCross BlueShield of Texas was dropping his PPO plan, but Frazier said that the broker did not tell Cruz his family was automatically being transferred to the carrier's HMO plan.
"Based on this information, Sen. Cruz believed the family was uninsured and asked the broker to pull quotes immediately for a new policy," Frazier said.

He doesn’t pay attention to the bill paying at his house? You’d think if he asked for a quote for new insurance that he would have at least checked into what happened with his new insurance.
I think he sounds like he’s falling apart.
Wow, glad that’s settled. I can finally get some sleep.
Obamacare is a gubmint mess. Anyone, let alone a conservative, deny that?
Maybe he was just confused or forgot that his family had insurance. I’m sure it happens all the time that people forget about their health insurance.
Yeah, that’s it.
he didn’t know he was a citizen of Canada for 44 years and didn’t know his family had medical coverage.. the most brilliant man ever to run for President
Why does it seem like disarray is occurring?
Why does it seem like some sort of cloud is settling over, ah, never mind ;S
and when tpm walks that back a bit.. I expect cricketts
With Cruz, it’s just one big LIE after another and I, for one, and sick and tired of being LIED TO !
Cruz also said Heidi was really mad at him that he had let the insurance for the family lapse and implied they had a big fight about it.
I’m sure this was just made up for the cameras like everything Cruz says.
“Snake in the grass.”
Glad to hear it. That means You won’t be supporting Trump.
Liquidating ALL of his and his wife's assets, with which to finance his senatorial campaign with, when, in facts, he took out loans to do so.
Then there are those loans and the FEC filings.
Voting for the TPA and WHY he did so.
That he didn't know that he had dual citizenship/was a Canadian citizen.
Wanting 100s of thousands on new H-1Bers brought into America.
Being eligible to run for the presidency.
His dead 1/2 brother.
And I wonder what else he has lied and lied and lied about too.
Always a reason to point over there. Poor guy. He is actually suffering his very first real vetting and it can not be easy.
Trump; has been railing against, PUBLICLY, it since he threw his hat into the ring.
This is about Cruz and his LIES; the whoppers that he keeps telling!
Ted and Heidi are HUGE liars and everything is just an ACT with them.
I wonder what else Ted has been/keeps lying about. He is just NOT trustworthy.
Don’t be ridiculous...this just makes me a far STRONGER Trump supporter and I have even MORE ammunition re Ted, with which to get more support, from others, for Trump. :-)
This doesn't make him look very competent, at the very least.
