Ted Cruz Says Obamacare Repeal Not Impossible

Posted on March 10, 2014

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 while 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.”

“And if enough congressional Democrats realize that they either stand with Obamacare and lose or listen to the American people and have a chance of staying in office, that’s the one scenario we can do it in 2015,” Cruz continued. “If not, we’ll do it in 2017.”

The ABC reporter was incredulous:

    well sure its easy to repeal, just like prohibition, all ya gotta do is get 38 states to agree on it and youre home free

    Ovomit has showed us how to do it. All that has to happen is to get a Republican president with balls that will issue an executive order that will delay the implementation of Ovomitcare in its entirety until the yeat 3000. That will stop it in its tracks. Then all that needs to be done is to get it repealed by the Congress, which will hopefully be in Republican hands in both houses. Then it is done and gone forever. At that point you can start to address the problems that we had, when all this foolishness started, with good common sense remedies that will work for everyone concerned.

  4. It must be repealed simply because it doesn't work and it never will. There are too many separate parts designed by too many incompetent people that never discussed how to integrate the system. DOA. The problem being that the administration has such an investment they won't give up on CPR. Stick a tag on it's toe and get out the proverbial body bag. It is all ready starting to smell.

  5. As I recall, the Great Perpetrator (Bill) Clinton vetoed a toughening of welfare requirements multiple times before reluctantly signing it in the face of overwhelming public sentiment in favor of it, and the stick-tuitiveness of congressional Republicans.

    In the end, Obama's view of himself as some sort of "chosen one" of god-like invulnerability is just that – his own narcissistic view of himself. Eventually enough acolytes notice that their presumed god bleeds just like any other mortal man.

    Wound even the largest alpha shark, and his own pack will ultimately tear him to pieces. (although it does seem to take a bit longer for the limited intellect of the average Democrat-progressive-liberal to grasp the obvious).

  6. Liberals and progressive have a very retarded view of history. They see it only in terms of "progress" where every victory of theirs was pre-destined and inevitable, and once that victory is achieved it can never be undone. Instead "history" must continue on to the next progressive action.

    That is why they react in such a way to the idea of repealing Obamacare. The idea that their victory can be undone is, in the words of The Princess Bride's Vizzini, "inconceivable".
