Give me my Obamacare
Yesterday Ted Cruz announced that he is running for President. In his speech he slammed Obamacare.
Well guess what? Ted Cruz and his family will be going onto Obamacare even though many of his ilk have been telling followers not to. CNN reported the following.
(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.
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.
Ted Cruz like most Right Wing Conservative Republicans continue to fool Americans and have them support policies or do things against their own interest. Lest we forget they were actually telling poor and needy Americans not to signup for Obamacare. Now that Ted Cruz and his family need insurance in the attempt to advance his career, he will gladly accept Obamacare. Of course he still says that given the opportunity, it is still his intent to repeal it.
Yes, Ted Cruz going on Obamacare for personal gain.
