The Mendacious Ted Cruz wants Obamacare

Senator Rafael 'Ted' Cruz is signing up for Obamacare Coverage. Just last month at CPAC 2015, during his 15 minute speaking section Cruz used his kazoo-like voice to rile up the right-wing rubes;
  • "Washington wants Obamacare. The People want Liberty!"
  • "Obamacare is a trainwreck, actually that's unfair to trainwrecks.
  • "Obamacare is a disaster!"
  • "If a candidate says they are against Obamacare, tell them, 'Great when have you stood and fought against it?'"
Cruz then had a 10 minute Q&A with Sean Hannity wherein he repeatedly referred to "the disaster that is Obamacare" or "the trainwreck that is Obamacare".

As a quick aside, there's something about that phrasing, "the disaster that is..." which doesn't sound grammatically correct or even resonate properly like good propaganda. It's too clunky, too awkward. It must work on right-wingers though, because everyone from Cruz to Michele Bachmann have empolyed it.

Anyways, that was February this is a whole month later. You see, Ted Cruz's wife, Heidi used to work at Goldman Sachs, stealing money from poor people, defrauding governments and rigging the financial system. Her job as a Thief at Sachs included a lavish Cadillac Healthcare Plan from which Ted Cruz benefited. But, now Ted and family won't have that luxury, so Senator and Republican Presidential wannabe Cruz has signed up for Obamacare Coverage.
"We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we're in the process of transitioning over to do that," Cruz told the Des Moines Register's Jennifer Jacobs. 
Cruz has tried to hem and haw that the law as written mandates that Congress be on the exchanges but, that's a slimy dodge. Cruz could simply take a fine and have the courage of his convictions and go without coverage, paying his medical bills out of pocket as the need arises.

But, Republicans are all cowards. Cruz wants other Americans to suffer and face the risks of living without medical insurance. Cruz, like all Republicans is willing to risk your health and financial security but not his own.

If Obamacare is so bad, he should just deal directly with the insurance companies.

The Republican Healthcare Option remains If You Were Wealthy you'd be Healthy, If You're Poor there's the Door.
