Cruz: GOP should vote to repeal ObamaCare if they can’t agree on plan

Source: The Hill | July 6, 2017 | Josh Delk

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a town hall Thursday night that he agrees with President Trump’s statement from last month that the Senate should vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act entirely if the GOP replacement bill is unable to pass. 

Cruz partnered with The Concerned Veterans for America for the event to discuss his proposed version of the health care bill amid a series of town hall events with the group focused on veteran issues.  

Cruz’s endorsement of repealing and then later replacing ObamaCare comes after Trump tweeted his support for such a plan last week.

Trump’s tweet came after the Republican Senate leadership delayed a vote on the Obamacare overhaul due to lack of support.

    They should have repealed it regardless. That was their promise. Over and over and over again.

    Except for Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and a few others, no one in either house of congress ever intended to repeal Obamacare. They might want to replace it — with government-run health care. Even now, those adamantly opposed to the Senate bill are waffling on their demand for actual repeal. They want to come up with some sort of compromise.

    But whatever they come up with, it won’t be repeal. Once again, Republicans will have broken their promises. And next election, voters will still vote for them in the mistaken belief they are a better alternative than the Democrats.
