Ted Cruz to sign up for Obamacare; Dems gloat

Only two days into his official presidential campaign, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has libs aflutter after announcing during a CNN interview Tuesday that he will enroll his family in Obamacare.

Which means rhe first announced candidate for the Republican nomination for 2016 is already giving Democrats a lesson in following the law.

Naturally, they’re not getting it.

The key here is Cruz’s answer to CNN’s Dana Bash explaining why he’s taking part in a law that he’s staked much of his national reputation on repealing.

“I believe we should follow the text of every law, even [a] law I disagree with,” Cruz said. “It’s one of the real differences — if you look at President Obama and the lawlessness, if he disagrees with a law he simply refuses to follow it or claims the authority to unilaterally change.”

In a separate interview with the Des Moines Register, Cruz made it clear that while he’s following the law now, he knows — to borrow one of President Obama’s favorite phrases — it’s on the wrong side of history.

Dr. Ben Carson calls President Obama a ‘psychopath’ — professional diagnosis?

” I believe in 2017 a new president, a Republican president will sign legislation repealing every word of it,” he said. “There are a fair number of Republicans in Washington and elsewhere who have quietly and privately given up on that fight, and I have not.”

He’s a guy who timed his presidential campaign announcement to the fifth anniversary of Obamacare, for God’s sake. Enrolling it in it himself doesn’t make Obamacare less of an issue for Cruz — it virtually guarantees every Democrat who tangles with him is going to bring it up.

And that’s a fight Cruz is more than happy to have.

Twitter users who read more than Democrat National Committee propaganda understood Cruz’s point perfectly well.  

Some even felt sorry for the senator.
