Constitutional conservative Ted Cruz shredded RINO Paul Ryan‘s deceptive and dishonest claim that Obamacare can only be repealed under three phases and said that the “repeal and replace” bill known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA) only repeals two of the 12 free market-killing mandates of Obamacare that have made insurance premiums unnecessarily skyrocket.
Appearing Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation with host John Dickerson, the Texas senator said that he will not vote for a bill that does not lower healthcare insurance premiums and that if Republicans offer up a bill that causes premiums to continue to spiral out of control, voters “will tar and feather” them “in the streets” and it would be justified.

“I’ve got to tell you, if Republicans hold a big press conference and pat ourselves on the back that we’ve repealed Obamacare and everyone’s premiums keep going up, people will be ready to tar and feather us in the streets, and quite rightly,” Cruz told Dickerson, noting that the bill as written would not pass in the U.S. Senate where Republican hold a slim two-vote majority.
Cruz made the case that anyone who believes in the so-called “three bucket solution” with all the goodies in step three is being suckered because it takes eight Democrats and now you can’t get eight Senate Democrats to agree on even saying the words “good morning.”Read the rest from Matthew K.
