Green Eggs and Scam: Ted Cruz Claims Scared Senate Democrats Got Kathleen Sebelius Fired


Sen. Ted Cruz went on Fox News, and tried to claim that scared Senate Democrats got Kathleen Sebelius fired from HHS.


While appearing on Fox News, Sen. Cruz said, “Look, I think this resignation is the latest indication of what a disaster Obamacare has been. I think Kathleen Sebelius should have resigned a long time ago, and the reason we’re seeing her resign now is because Senate Democrats are scared. They’re running scared because every one of them in their races across the country, they’re underwater. They’re losing because Obamacare has hurt so many millions of people, and I think it was Senate Democrats who demanded Kathleen Sebelius’ head, and I think that’s exactly what we saw what happen yesterday.”

Fox News went on to claim that millions of Americans have lost their healthcare. Cruz claimed that President Obama was a smug, and the congressional Democrats are liars.

Cruz said that he would use the confirmation hearing of the next HHS secretary to call for the repeal of Obamacare, “I think Burwell presents an ideal opportunity to examine the failures that are Obamacare. And four years ago, reasonable minds could have differed over whether this thing might work. Today, seeing the disaster, seeing the trainwreck that is Obamacare, in my view, it is the essence of pragmatism to acknowledge this thing isn’t working. We need to start over, repeal every word of it. Start over.”

Sen. Cruz’s claim that every single Senate Democrat is losing their race was a flat out lie. Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is winning her race in Louisana. Democratic Sen. Kay Hagen is tied with her Republican challengers in North Carolina. Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor is leading his Republican opponent in Arkansas.

The idea that panicked Democrats pushed Kathleen Sebelius out is a bit of fantasy that Ted Cruz needs Fox News viewers to believe. This is the next step in his Obamacare cash scam. If Fox News viewers ever get a hint of the reality that the law is working, they won’t crack open their checkbooks to and fund Cruz’s bogus efforts to repeal the law.

Sebelius is leaving the administration after 7.5 million people signed up for the ACA. She isn’t leaving after a huge victory on her own terms. Cruz and Fox News can’t come to grips with their defeat, so they are inventing victories for fun and profit.

Ted Cruz is feeding the Republican delusions about the ACA, and laughing all the way to the bank, as he parts misinformed Fox News fools from their money.

  1. I was wondering how long it would take this roach to crawl out from under the tile and make some incredibly stupid remark. He probably stayed up all night trying to think of the lies he was going to spin. If he tries to obstruct the confirmation of the new HHS Secretary I am betting his own party is going to dump on him.

  2. Well, Ted Cruz spewing his brain gurgle about this was predictable. I am just waiting for the other misshapen shoe to drop and hearing what he has to say about the Cliven Bundy ranch standoff.

    Stay tuned. The Fox Derp machine is already on the scene.

  3. The Reichwing really doesn’t have a long-term strategy, do they?

    They just wing-nut it on a daily basis….hoping that some thing will last for a week or two.

    They are morally and ideologically bankrupt.

  4. Cruz is nothing more than the semi-human version of cow flatulence. Anyone with the IQ of a potato knows this.

  5. Hey @Phil I have a great deal of respect for you and I sincerely hope no one here takes my rants as being a bigot, I love everybody, I just can’t tolerate greedy-EVIL individuals. and unfortunately the majority of the GOP according to GALLUP “over 90%” happens to be caucasians. and with folks like limbaugh, beck o’reilly and klannity it’s hard not to poke fun at these CLOWNS! ANYWAY, back to my usual kit, I’m not going to call the republican party the GOP anymore, I’ll be referring to them as the ABP, ARCHIE BUNKER PARTY

  6. Hey @knight4444, nah I don’think like that and I always like seeing your posts. It’s funny because by appearances I look like the typical old white guy. Short hair, clean shaven, I dress pretty conservatively. But inside I am just an old hippy at heart. Over the years it has amazed me that alot of white guys who I would meet in public whether at a pub, or at a job, or somewhere would automatically assume I was just like them. As soon as they would open up they would start on their bigot rants about minorities or gays or whatever their peeve was, and sometimes didn’t even know my name.

    I was happily married to a beautiful, strong black woman most of my life. So you can imagine what I was thinking while they were talking. I’d let them go awhile, but I’d always ask them, Would you say that in a crowd of (whoever they were ranting on), boy is that a show stopper.

  7. I am the opposite. I hung in bars for around 20 years in the drinking phase of my life, and I do not remember one conversation about black, gays or any other monority. But that was in Michigan. Not where I live now in Tn

  8. I tried to reply to you Shiva but it didn’t go through. I lived in Louisiana back in those years. It’s a good place to be from.

  9. He Ted Cruz … remember, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE POWER you think you have! You are weak – and your weakness shows every time you open your mouth!
