Cruz Slams Obama for 'Dancing in the End Zone' on Obamacare
On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted President Barack Obama for "dancing in the end zone" when the President essentially declared that Obamacare was well on its way to accomplishing its mission, even though the law has raised premiums and left millions of Americans in a perpetual state of chaos regarding their health care.
Cruz, along with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), led the effort to defund Obamacare last year and extend the waivers that special interests received from the law to all Americans. And he insisted on Wednesday that every word of Obamacare needs to be repealed.
"President Obama is dancing in the end zone while millions of Americans are still hurting from Obamacare. He has moved the goal posts so many times -- why should the American people believe him this time?" Cruz wrote on his Facebook page. "Obamacare wasn't working last year and it's not working now. We need a #FullRepeal of every word of it."
Obama declared on Tuesday that the debate over Obamacare was "over" and there was "no good reason to go back."
