U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz Wants Obamacare Repealed
Updated: Friday, January 10 2014, 06:37 PM CST
United States Senator Ted Cruz is taking aim at the Commander in Chief for what Cruz calls his failed healthcare policies.
"There has been no sector of the economy hurt more by Obama's administration than small business. That's why jobs are so scarce," said Cruz.
Cruz claims two-thirds of all new jobs comes from small business owners.
The senator from Texas is blaming Obamacare for the country's job losses.
"It's the biggest job killer in America. Millions have lost their jobs or forced into part-time work.
Cruz's comments at the Texas Public Policy Foundation's 12th annual conference sparked swift reaction from the progressive values group Progress Texas.
"Ted Cruz's temper tantrums cost taxpayers billions of dollars and did nothing for the six million Texans without health insurance," said Deputy Director Phillip Martin.
During his speech in Austin, Cruz took jabs at former first lady Hillary Clinton who in 1993 attempted to pass her own healthcare reform package. It failed, but the comments foreshadowed a possible presidential showdown between the two political heavyweights.
"Obamacare would've been passed 21 years ago and it would've been called Hillarycare," added Cruz.
Cruz is calling for the president's Affordable Care Act to be repealed.
He aims to replace it with healthcare reform he calls "personal, portable and affordable."
"This isn't working. Let's start over," claimed Cruz.
