Yesterday Texas Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced he was signing his family up for Obamacare. As required by law, he has to. Just like millions of other Americans, the choice is get insurance coverage or be fined for not having it.
"We'll be getting new health insurance and we'll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we'll be on the federal exchange with millions of others," Cruz said in an interview with CNN Tuesday.
Cruz and his family currently have health insurance coverage through his wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs. Cruz's wife, Heidi, is a managing director at the company and will take a leave of absence to campaign for her husband, causing her family to lose their healthcare coverage, according to CNN.
Naturally because of Cruz' extensive work to repeal Obamacare during his time in the Senate, which included a 21-hour filibuster about the legislation, the media and its liberal think tank counterparts are freaking out and calling Cruz a hypocrite.
It's "Mitt Romney put his dog on the top of the car, what a terrible person," all over again.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have broken federal records laws in an effort to evade transparency with the American people after doing all of her official business from a private email server and the press thinks it's hilarious.
Ted Cruz follows law by signing up for Ocare: Media freaks. Hillary Clinton evades federal records laws: Media literally laughs with her.— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) March 24, 2015
I'm no Ted Cruz fanboi, but this argument that a Presidential candidate should be mocked for following the law is tendentious and silly.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) March 24, 2015
