Sen. Ted Cruz again raps Obama’s health care law

August 11, 2013

AMES, Iowa — Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday continued his call for cutting off funding for President Barack Obama’s health care law and told conservative Christians that congressional lawmakers can’t be counted on to do it.

The Texas Republican, a tea-party favorite and a possible presidential candidate in 2016, drew a standing ovation at the Family Leadership Summit with his denouncement of the health care initiative labeled “Obamacare” by its critics.

That reaction right there shows how we win this fight,” Cruz said. “If I was sitting in the Senate cloakroom, the reaction would be fundamentally different. If we have to depend on Washington, it will never be done.”

As he has in remarks to other conservatives, Cruz asserted that a grassroots effort would be needed. “The only way we win this fight is if the American people rise up and hold our elected officials accountable,” he said.

Cruz has been part of a push by some conservative lawmakers to close the government temporarily this fall — by refusing to fund federal operations beyond Sept. 30 — if that’s the only way to cut off money for Obama’s health care law. Other Republicans have dismissed the tactic as counterproductive and even dangerous for Republicans seeking re-election next year.

    I’m 80 years, gladly signed my ticket to for me to be used by the US Government to use as needed in any manner, Korea and Viet Nam. I was an infantryman, as an NCO and as an officer. I have hated most politicians who say they must get people of the other side angry, that it will be dangerous and counterproductive for our Party in get next election. Give me a break. You haven’t been in danger until you have lived in a hole in a winter over 20 below zero or run through the jungle in 129 degree and 100 humidity. Join Cruz and stand up and be accounted for.
