President Barack Obama is "worried," Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas says, after the president attacked foes of his Affordable Care Act as "irresponsible" and resorting to blackmail.

"I think those comments suggest that he's worried," Cruz said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."  Throwing insults such as "irresponsible" and "blackmail" suggest Obama is hearing "the American people speaking up in overwhelming numbers."

Obama made the remarks in a speech in Largo, Md., earlier in the day. He called the effort of Republicans to negotiate with him over raising the debt ceiling an attempt to blackmail him.

Noting that Teamsters President James Hoffa sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., complaining that Obamacare would "shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class," Cruz asked whether Obama was referring to Hoffa as "irresponsible."
