Let’s see a bad bill that is hurting America, a bad bill that Americans have never supported, and a bad bill that was shoved through in the most partisan fashion possible. Who in their right mind would have any issues with scrapping such a bill? I would like to know what such people are thinking, and so would Ted Cruz
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz can’t understand why the mainstream media views the repeal of Obamacare as a “bizarre proposition,” noting that the healthcare bill is “the most unpopular law in the country.”
Cruz spoke with ABC’s Jon Karl about his promise to “repeal every single word of Obamacare” while at CPAC this week. “We can acknowledge that that’s not going to happen why Barack Obama is president, right?” a skeptical Karl asked.
“Yeah, I’ll give you one scenario where it could,” the conservative senator responded. “If there’s one thing that unifies politicians of both parties, it’s their top priority is preserving their own hide.”
I have to disagree with Cruz here. I doubt that President Obama would ever, under any circumstance go along with scrapping ObamaCare. He is s dedicated leftist, as are many Democrats frankly, and this law is a long-held dream of the Left.
KARL: So you honestly think there’s a chance that you can get Obamacare repealed — every word, as you say.
CRUZ: Every single word.
KARL: With Obama in the White House.
CRUZ: You know, what’s funny Jon is the media treats that as a bizarre proposition –
KARL: Well it is!
KARL: Just look at the size — it is a bizarre proposition, isn’t it?
CRUZ: It is the most unpopular law in the country. Millions of people have lost their jobs, have lost their healthcare, have been forced into part-time work, have their premiums skyrocketing. And right now Washington isn’t listening to those people. That’s how we win elections! And it’s also how we repeal Obamacare.
Karl does not want to get it. Laws of course can be repealed, even constitutional amendments can be undone (prohibition) with constitutional amendments. Which brings me to something you never hear any politician call for Congress, or state legislatures to do. Repealing useless failed, and often repetitive laws that stifle liberty, and opportunity. If I was ever governor of a state, I would push the state legislature to repeal unneeded laws. We have far too many laws in our nation, and many of these should be done away with. I would be a good governor, even if Johnathan Karl would think of me as bizarre.
