"WASHINGTON -- As Republicans continue to debate their plan for health care overhaul, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday that he won’t vote for the bill as it stands because it will not solve the problem of rising insurance premiums.“I cannot vote for any bill that keeps premiums rising,” Cruz said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Ted Cruz says he won't vote for GOP health care bill as it stands Well--this is a huge surprise, I must say. No one campaigned on repealing & replacing Obamacare like Ted Cruz did. For 7 long years he ranted and raved his way through the halls of congress on this. He and his midget minions in the house continually threatened to shut down the government over Obamacare. He continually threatened to defund Obamacare, (leaving millions that were forced on this plan without medical insurance overnight). He even read Green Eggs & Ham on the Senate floor over Obamacare-- The Republican house spent their time sending up 30 bills to Obama's desk to repeal Obamacare--with Obama having a veto pen in hand. No one, and I mean no one was a bigger pain the ass than Senator Ted Cruz was when it came to Obamacare. Now that he is up for reelection in 2018-he has suddenly and remarkably developed a different attitude. Amazing how that works.
