Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took a shot at two of his opponents, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Donald Trump, on the grounds of immigration and health care.
Cruz said, “Listen, we are drawing contrast, both trump and Marco are attacking me. They’re attacking me with all their might. And we’re drawing contrast. And the contrasts are clear. The contrasts by the way are substantive and policy based. A vote for Marco Rubio is a vote for amnesty. A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Obamacare. If you look at their positions, Marco Rubio right now is a presidential candidate is advocating amnesty, advocating citizenship for 12 million people here illegally.”
“And Donald Trump right now as a candidate is advocating full-on expanding Obamacare to make it socialized medicine,” he continued. “Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have the identical position on health care, which is they want to put the government in charge of you and your doctor. Now, my views are opposites of both of those. If I’m elected there will be no amnesty, we will secure the border. If I’m elected we will repeal every word of Obamacare. So that gives a clear and simple choice for the voters.”
