Ted Cruz predicted that once Obamacare passed – – it would never be repealed

By Washington Examiner, June 29, 2017

In October 2013, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz took a lot of criticism for his doomed effort to defund Obamacare.

  1. Your comment is so true that for some reason nobody wants to repeal Obamacare, just put band ads on it!

All you have to do is remove these tax breaks and apply this money for healthcare! We definitely need to get rid of Obamacare as is it has doubled the majority of people's premiums across the country! It's a serious problem for Republicans and Democrats alike! Those choosing to defend Obamacare are truly heartless to allow the majority of Americans to suffer like this and yet allow it to continue and justify helping the very vocal 1% while hurting the 99%!
