After John McCain voted to keep Obamacare, some Republicans have been furious. Ted Cruz fought back against these traitorous Republicans. “The losers tonight are the millions of Americans who have been hurt under Obamacare; the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, who have been forced into part-time work, forced to work 28, 29 hours a week,” started Cruz.
“Millions of Americans have had their health insurance canceled, who’ve lost their doctors, who’ve seen their premiums skyrocket. The six and a half million Americans each year who are fined by the IRS because they don’t make enough money to afford health insurance? And so not only do they not get health insurance, but they get a fine by the IRS, and 80% of them are earning $50,000 a year or less. Nearly half are earning $25,000 a year or less,” explained Cruz.
“It’s the single moms; it’s the truck drivers; it’s the steel workers; the working men and women who are left behind tonight. That’s unfortunate. And you know there are going to be a great many Americans who tonight feel a sense of betrayal. Feel a sense of betrayal that politicians stood up and made a promise,” said Cruz.
“I’ll tell you this: If you stand up and campaign and say we are going to repeal Obamacare, and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent. And the American people are entirely justified in saying any politician who told me that, who voted the other way, didn’t tell me the truth; they lied to me,” said Cruz.
“Senators are going to go home, in the next few weeks, they’re going to go home to their states, and they’re going to face their constituents. They’re going to have hard questions of people who look them in the eyes and say, Why did you lie to me?’” said Cruz. Check out the video below.
