    Fucking cartoon head hypocrite.

    His wife 'quit' her breadwinner position at Goldman Sachs, so now they have to use his federal benefits.

    Teddy says... Thanks, Obama!!

    :haha:

    Well problem is that the retarded right has convinced people that "buying Obamacare" is an actual thing, it's not. What Cruz did was purchase insurance on the exchanges set up by the Affortable Care Act. So in the parlance of Ted Cruz, he is now using Obamacare.

    Ok. I wasn't sure if he went through the exchange or just opted in to his federal job healthcare. Don't Congressmen get free healthcare? I thought I heard that somewhere.

    The newly announced Republican presidential candidate told CNN's Dana Bash on Tuesday that he will sign up for health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act -- a law he has been on a crusade to kill.
    "We'll be getting new health insurance and we'll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we'll be on the federal exchange with millions of others on the federal exchange," Cruz said.

    :lol:

    Congress used to get, like all federal workers, paid for insurance, like most employers, but part of Obamacare denied Congress such rights and forced them to buy insurance on the exchanges.

    Ok. I just read the article and Cruz is going through the exchange to prove a point. He is not taking the exemption that Obama set up for Congress members. Your whole idea behind starting this thread is misleading and retarded. Fucking liberals fuckwads.

    Figures. There are principled ways to attack ACA; the problem is our Canadian-Cuban-Texan-'Murican friend is not the chap to do it.

    Also he does not appeal to moderate Conservatives, only the far right tea baggers. Is there a candidate that appeals to normal Republicans?

    Not so.

    Federal workers haven't had fully paid premiums since the 70's.

    These benefits have eroded annually since.

    Everyone thinks feds are over paid, get all kinds of free shit which is bullshit.
    To those I say... if it's such a great deal, APPLY! Chances are you wont qualify. LOL

    Teddy Cruz bothers Dems a lot. Even liberal Alan Dershowitz mentioned that Teddy was one of the smartest kids he's had. Ted appeals to all republicans that want less government, religious voters, strong defense, less dependence on Govt. Dems problem is that he can articulate his position well. Their criticism on him about his experience and foreign parent so far also applies to Obama. They can't find much on him so they have to go after his wife. Desperate much? Anyone in mainstream media question Michele's fathers background anytime? Wasn't calling Obama a Kenyan considered racist? So why call Cruz Cuban?
