Maybe I should start a movement in Texas that says if you voted for Ted Cruz at any time during his campaign for United States Senator, you’re immediately disqualified from ever voting again. What the heck were these people thinking? Well, I guess the better question is, “Were these people thinking?” to which I’m starting to believe the answer to that question is a resounding “no.”
It’s pretty clear that I’m not a big fan of the Republican party in general, but there are those conservatives who hold a special place in my heart for being absolutely detestable.
In fact, I made a list of my top 10 most detestable conservatives you can check out here.
But Ted Cruz is just becoming a bigger laughing-stock by the day. Reality has absolutely no impact on what this man says. I just covered how he continues to claim that he never pushed for a government shutdown (even though anyone with half a brain knows he was the one leading the charge).
Now he’s taken to continuing his propaganda against “Obamacare,” this time comparing President Obama to his 5-year-old and 3-year-old daughters.
“Over 5 million people trusted President Obama when he said, ‘if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.’ We now know that statement wasn’t true. If he was actually taking responsibility for his actions, he would number one say, ‘I am sorry,’ but then number two, and number two is much, much more important, he would act to fix it.”
You know, Gretchen, at home I have two little girls, a 5-year-old and 3-year-old. One of my daughters punches the other. If they just say, ‘I’m sorry,’ and they keep hitting the kid, it doesn’t mean a whole lot. For President Obama’s apology to mean something, he’s got to stop hitting the American people, stop taking away their health care, stop driving up their premiums, stop making it worse.”
And here we go with the whole “you can keep your plan” thing once again. Yes, everyone (including many liberals) has basically called out President Obama for this comment. Then despite what Cruz says here about the president not apologizing – he actually did.
Oh, and he offered a solution to allow Americans to keep their existing plans for an additional year as well. Another lie Cruz tried to perpetuate here.
His little analogy he tried to use where he compares the President of the United States of America to his two very small daughters doesn’t make any sense. In fact, the simplicity (when comparing it to a much more complex situation), and its absurdity, only further proves how small-minded Ted Cruz really is.
The total disrespect these conservatives constantly show toward the President of the United States is astounding. It’s one thing for some right-wing media pundit or conservative personality to show disrespect toward the president, but Ted Cruz is a United States Senator. Then again, the only person Ted Cruz cares about is himself.
I really believe he’d be fine seeing this country burn to the ground, the entire GOP crumble and every American starving in the streets if it benefited his political aspirations.
And of course what would an anti-Obamacare rant be without the usual hand-picked lies about higher premiums and taking away health care from millions of Americans.
Even if people were being forced to switch health insurance plans, that doesn’t mean they lost health care – it just means they had to switch plans. And for the record, health insurance companies change and cancel existing plans all the time. This isn’t exactly something that’s new.
I also love in this right-wing rhetoric how they completely ignore the millions of Americans who have gained access thanks to “Obamacare.” In fact, the latest numbers show around 9 million Americans have gained access to health care thanks to the Affordable Care Act. A number Cruz (and basically every other Republican) seems to never mention.
And to think, we still have at least 5 more years of Ted Cruz’s ridiculousness to suffer through. At least his probable presidential run in 2016 should make for great comedy.
