Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday doubled down on his call to arms in â€œdefunding Obamacare,â€ even if Senate Democrats are highly unlikely to approve any short-term spending deal this September that impugns President Obamaâ€™s signature domestic achievement.
Mr. Cruz, Texas Republican, said that if the GOP-controlled House could pass a continuing resolution that strips the Affordable Care Act of funding this September, a â€œgrass-roots tsunamiâ€ of opposition to the health care law could force the Senate to relent.
The GOP, he told CNN, has to do something it hasnâ€™t done in a long time: â€œStand up and win the argument.â€
Mr. Cruz, who hasnâ€™t kept a low profile as a freshman senator, has been linked to a presidential run in 2016.
Despite visits to Iowa and New Hampshire â€” vital prizes during a presidential primary season â€” Mr. Cruz insisted that the media likes to stir up talk of 2016.
â€œI think itâ€™s the silly season in politics,â€ he told CNNâ€™s â€œState of the Union.â€
