Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) has not backed off from his drive to destroy the President’s disastrous take over of our healthcare system with his Obamacare scheme and this weekend he was in Iowa bucking up the troops and urging a “grassroots army” to rise up and dismantle Obamacare.
Cruz was appearing before a crowd in Akron, Iowa on Friday, October 25 in three days of events that many think indicates he’s considering a run for President in 2016.
Cruz says he is only focused on his work in the Senate now, but if he does look to a run for the White House, Iowa is a traditional place to start to raise his profile.
Whatever his goals for the future, for today he is still beating the drum to defeat Obamacare and he made some excellent points about the hypocrisy of the left, the Democrats and the Old Media complex (but I thrice repeat myself) that attacked those that wanted to delay and defund Obamacare.
“I seem to recall two weeks ago when every newspaper, every political TV station was saying that it is impossible for the president to delay any part of Obamacare,” Cruz said. “You guys are nuts. This week, the president and the Democrats are saying ‘holy cow, this thing is really not working.’”
This is exactly right. Last week the Old Media and the Democrats were screaming that it was sacrilege to delay Obamacare–remember how they kept screaming “it’s the law”?
But this week, even Democrats are saying that because the website has been such a disaster we need to delay it all. New week, new tune.
Cruz said he had an idea of how to further delay this horrid healthcare law. “Telling people’s stories about how Obamacare is hurting real people, right now. That’s how we’re going to do this,” he said.
And Cruz we right when he said that Obamacare is the “single biggest lie” in political history.
Above we have the first half of Senator Cruz’ address but if you’d like to watch his entire speech, here it is…
What do you think? Is Cruz right? Can we rise up as a grassroots army to destroy Obamacare and stop this un-American, socialist mess before it’s too late?
