  • Ted Cruz Complies With Federal Healthcare Law, Media Freaks Out

    Yesterday Texas Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced he was signing his family up for Obamacare. As required by law, he has to. Just like millions of other Americans, the choice is get insurance coverage or be fined for not having it. "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," Cruz said in an interview with CNN Tuesday. Cruz and his family currently have health insurance coverage through his wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs. Cruz's wife, Heidi, is a...

    Despite being vehemently opposed to Obamacare, Ted Cruz is signing up for insurance under President Obama’s health care law. The Texas Republican Senator and newly-announced presidential candidate, known for his staunch opposition to the Affordable Care Act, told CNN on Tuesday that he will be joining the millions of Americans enrolled in insurance under the law.

    (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 contribution available to lawmakers and congressional staffers for their health care coverage through the ACA,...

    On Thursday, after President Barack Obama again declared that the Obamacare debate was over, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who led the effort to defund the law last year, had a message for him: not so fast.  Sen. Cruz tweeted that message: The repeal debate is far from over. #FullRepeal — Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) April 17, 2014"The point is the repeal debate is and should be over," Obama said. "The Affordable Care Act is working. And I know the American people don’t want us spending the next two and a half years refighting the settled political battles of the last...

    Echoing strategy that led to the October 2013 government shutdown, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says Republicans have opportunities to scale back Obamacare with deadlines looming on spending bills Jan. 15 and on a debt ceiling vote this spring — and is urging GOP lawmakers to use “every leverage point available” to uproot the law. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Wednesday, Cruz vowed to “fight even harder . . . to repeal every word of Obamacare,” calling the health care law "a disaster" and "the No. 1 job killer in the country." The feisty lawmaker sees a comparison...
  • Cruz Legal Memo: Obamacare is 'Abusive View of Federal Power'

    Sen. Ted Cruz plans to argue Monday in a legal memo that Obamacare is unconstitutional and an abuse of federal authority, according to The Daily Caller. His memorandum, "The Legal Limit: The Obama Administration's Attempts to Expand Federal Power," will reportedly include legal citations and argues that the Obama administration's implementation of its signature healthcare legislation demonstrates an "abusive view of federal power." According to the Daily Caller, the Texas Republican and tea party favorite uses the memo to question the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling upholding the law by noting that parts of it were found not to meet the...

    So, When Does Ted Cruz Get His Apology? That crazy Ted Cruz. The Texas freshman Senator (R-Tea Party) tried to defund Obamacare, then accepted a one-year delay in the individual mandate as a compromise position. But you can't govern from one House of Congress, and the one he's in is one the Republicans don't govern anyway. Obama and the Democrats held all the cards. So Cruz caved--it was only a matter of time, right?--and Republicans got blamed for everything. Fast-forward a few weeks. President Barack Obama is trying to delay parts of Obamacare by administrative fiat. Democrats are rushing...

    Ted Cruz is unbowed. The Texas Senator, speaking at The American Spectator’s annual Washington gala Wednesday evening, was nothing if not resolute in his attacks on the disaster that has become Obamacare. “Should we have fought this fight?” he asked, his resounding yes coming by way of citing the differences between the way the disaster of Obamacare is perceived in Washington and out in the country. “If you get out of Washington there’s no ambiguity” on the question, Cruz said. “This thing isn’t working. It is a disaster and a disaster that is hurting people right now…. On the merits...

    PJ Media's Rule of Law ^ | October 23, 2013 | J. Christian Adams
    It has become clear after the government shutdown that if Obamacare isn’t destroyed now, it will be with us forever. Waiting until after a series of elections to try to kill it is a fool’s errand. There will never be more support for ending Obamacare than there will be in the next few months. Once the dependency class hooks up their Obamacare IV, it’s game over. Let’s inventory how Texas Senator Ted Cruz won territory in the government shutdown fight. First, the Left knows victories are won through the fight. This is the core of the new Alinskyite model of...

    PJ Media ^ | October 23, 2013 | Ron Radosh
    Some Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz, have argued that if ObamaCare goes through, an entire group of people will want and like the services offered, thus creating a new dependent culture of people hooked on the supposedly universal and free medical care being offered. Hence, any chances of repealing or reversing it in the future will be doomed. The events of the previous week have shown that this is an unfounded fear. More likely is that the inherent flaws in ObamCare, now more apparent than ever, will create a groundswell of public opinion demanding either its delay or a movement...
  • Internal Cruz memo argues defund Obamacare effort ‘produced tangible results’

    Ted Cruz’s office has written a memo that takes aim at the “establishment politicians and members of the pundit class” that “continue to second-guess efforts to defund Obamacare” and blame the Texas senator for the government shutdown. “The defund plan produced tangible results that create both immediate and long-term benefits for the country and the conservative cause,” the memo, which has been circulated in political circles and obtained by The Daily Caller, argues. Here is the Cruz argument about why the defunding Obamacare effort was worth it: First, it intensified the nation’s focus on Obamacare. Second, it energized Americans by...

    Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are seeking to stay relevant in the debate over ObamaCare, but they might as well be shouting in a hurricane. A hurricane named Ted. During this month’s fiscal standoff, Sen. Ted Cruz attracted the most attention of any possible White House hopeful on Capitol Hill. GOP strategists say Cruz, a freshman Republican from Texas, has seized the role of Tea Party standard-bearer, giving him an edge with conservative activists. The grassroots army Cruz built over the last few months could help him in Iowa and other primary battlegrounds if he decides to...

    Just prior to the president's ObamaCare pep rally in the White House Rose Garden, Monday morning, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released the following statement regarding Obamacare's failure to live up to Obama's many promises: Today President Obama will draw the media’s attention to a handful of persons who have applied for Obamacare while ignoring the untold number of Americans who are losing the plans they liked because of Obamacare. Yesterday, Kaiser Health joined numerous other news outlets by confirming a new victim of Obamacare: Americans who are receiving cancellation notices from their insurers due to the Affordable Act. “Health...
