Ted Cruz Loses His Mind By Claiming Obamacare Can Be Repealed While Obama is President

On ABC’s This Week, Sen. Ted Cruz told a lie that was so dense only a Republican could believe it. Cruz claimed that Republicans can repeal Obamacare while Obama is president.

Cruz claims that it is possible for Republicans to repeal Obamacare while Obama is president. His explanation of how this would happen was the fantasy of an unhealthy man.

Sen. Cruz said, “The thing that unifies politicians of both parties is their top priority is preserving their own hide, and if enough congressional Democrats realize that they either stand with Obamacare and lose, or listen to the American people and have a chance of staying in office, that’s the one scenario could do it in 2015 if not, we’ll do it in 2017.”

Even ABC’s resident Republican propagandist, Jon, Benghazi emails, Karl thought this was nuts. He asked Cruz if he honestly believed that he could get every word of Obamacare repealed with Obama in the White House. Cruz responded with his same old Obamacare lies that the ACA is costing people their jobs and causing their healthcare costs to skyrocket.

It’s time for a reality check for Sen. Cruz. According to a poll released less than two weeks ago, support for repealing Obamacare has fallen to a record low of 31%. The vast majority of those polled want the ACA to stay in place, and be fixed. The latest data from the Commerce and Treasury Departments show that the economic impact of the ACA is the exact opposite of what Cruz suggested. In January 2014, the ACA boosted both personal income and spending.

It turns out that when people are spending less on healthcare and health insurance, they have more money to spend on other things. This is a simple economic reality that Ted Cruz has avoided like the plague. Cruz has lost his mind if he believes for one second that Democrats are going to stop supporting Obamacare, or that the president will sign a bill that repeals the signature achievement of his administration.

The truth is that repealing Obamacare is extremely unpopular and that it won’t matter if Republicans win back the Senate. The ACA is not going anywhere. Sen. Cruz’s lies today were the act of a desperate man, who is in full denial of reality.

The repeal Obamacare movement is dead and dying, and so is the political future of Rafael Edward Cruz.

  1. I can’t imagine – any person – Democrat, Republican or Independent – would intentionally vote in a pathological liar as President of the United States. Red Cruz only cares for himself and filling up his pockets with money and power.

  2. I guess those Canadians are not to familiar with how the Constitution or American law works. He’s crazy alright, like a fox. He blathers anything that any lobbyist will pay him to say, all while filling his pockets to ride off into the sunset when his 15 minutes are over with. He is like the child that acts out in the classroom to get attention. Maybe they need to prescribe him some ADHD medication.

  3. This fool is only out for himself, and he is using his party as a means to that end. They should have learned their lesson when they implemented the shutdown as a way to try to get rid of Obamacare. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now. It did put Ted Cruz on the map, and not in a good way either.

  4. I wish the 15 min. were over. Unfortunately, Sunday morning talk shows always seem to have him on, espousing the ridiculousness that is Ted Cruz. I cursed at my TV and changed the channel when I saw “This Week” was again seeking his opinion, only to find “Face the Nation” was seeking the opinion of Cheney. Liberal media my butt.

  5. Put up or shut up, Senator Cruz. And then we can all look back on the day the Republican Party went the way of the dinosaur.

  6. Ah, but sadly, the low information voters believe in him… they elected him. Without even listening to him, just the fact that Granny Grifter endorsed him gives it all away. Birds of a feather, as is said!

  7. Teddy “Don’t hate me just because I’m nuts” Cruz resides in a political bubble — isolated from the world of reality and true public opinion — where the only voices that he hears are the reverberating echoes of his own fact-devoid rhetoric.

  8. Maybe someone should explain to him that in this country, not sure about Cuba or Canada, but in the USA, when the Congress passes a bill, it needs to be signed by the President before it becomes law. Can anyone send him a copy of the old Saturday morning bit about how a bill becomes law.

    You’d think by being the Texas Attorney General he would know that, but then again, it is Texas.

  9. Um, grumble. He’s just running on sheer spite. I really do wonder at the political talk shows that have him and the other cyphers run their mouths to fill the air time. Better to run nothing but commercials–same corporate blather without the petty little narcissistic fronts.

  10. You noticed that too. I thought it was just me. It seems like these Sunday talk shows have turned into GOP infomercials. the one missing this week was John McCain. He must have the flu this week.

  11. This is how he raises money–by telling the base what they want to hear. Nothing more than that. He knows that even IF the GOP gets control of Congress–Obama will veto anything they throw at him that he doesn’t agree with. They won’t have a 2/3 majority to overturn it. I don’t see that happening. And if it does, God help us all.

  12. There are plenty of uninformed voters who have drunk the GOP Kool-Aid when it comes to the story they have spun about Obama. As far as Cruz is concerned, he is probably THRILLED that many people would believe him and what he said today. I’m sure there are plenty of people who have no idea what the veto power of the president is and the only way it can be overturned. . They just believe whatever these guys spew. He is counting on this–all the GOP needs is a 6 seat pickup in the Senate–and they have control. I don’t see a super majority like the sweep we saw in 2010–but trust me, Cruz is only saying this stuff because he wants the base to go out and vote. They know what most of us already know–GOP voters vote more in midterms than Democratic voters. This is insurance to make sure his people go out and vote.

  13. Ladies and gentleman, we would like to introduce to you the next VP of the USA serving with President Palin says the tea-party.

  14. The problem with the crazy like a fox act is that the longer the person play acts in this role, the more likely he will BECOME the role. His father is certifiable. He is a babbling goonish nightmare and made himself such a nuisance in Canada that when the Toronto Star did a report on Rafael Cruz, they couldn’t find anybody to find anything nice to say about him.

    Same with Ted Cruz’s old stomping grounds of Harvard and Princeton. His old roommates dislike him, everybody says what an asshole he was. He did unsavoury things like walk around the girls drum wearing only a paisley bathrobe. He’s got spider eggs where his brains should be.

    So this is where we are at with this man. He is only going to get more looney as the echo chamber vibrates his brain cells to concussive levels because the dial is stuck on level 11 stupid.

  15. Do you really believe he needs to raise money? I don’t. His hand is so deep into the Koch pockets, he does not need any extra money.
    So with the thinking he is so filled with glibness and the fact he believes he is so eloquent and super intelligent in his speech, he has no conscience.
    If he was as interested in becoming a pres. candidate as he claims, you’d think he would have his birth problems finished and put to rest.
    I for one am glad he doesn’t,It means he will not be on any ticket…..
