Ted Cruz on Obamacare: 'Congress Needs to Step In'

By    |   Wednesday, 13 Nov 2013 01:26 PM

Obamacare is falling apart and in the process "millions" of Americans are hurting from the loss of health insurance, Sen. Ted Cruz charged Wednesday.

"At this point, it's clear Obamacare isn't working. I think Congress needs to step in. We need to show real leadership and fix the problem that Congress created. We need to stop Obamacare," the Texas Republican said on "Fox & Friends."

In travels across his home state, Cruz said he's found that many people have been "scared" by the loss of their current health insurance due to the new regulations set out under the new healthcare law.

"I don't think it's fixable. The White House is coming in with all of these fixes and little bells and whistles. But, they're not going to work. It's fundamentally flawed," he said.

"Nobody can defend it, because millions of people are losing their jobs, are at part-time work. Their premiums are skyrocketing and getting health insurance canceled. We need to stop it and start over because it didn't work," Cruz added.

Cruz dismissed former President Bill Clinton's admonishment of President Barack Obama to keep his promise that people would be able to keep their present coverage if they like it.

He said Clinton's comments were politically suspect because his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is considered to be the Democratic front runner for president in 2016.

"It suggests, perhaps, that Hillary Clinton is looking to run away from President Obama and run away from Obamacare," Cruz said.

Cruz also said the former president's comments should be taken as a "signal" to Democrats that changes need to be made in the law.

"That should be a real signal that we ought to get some bipartisan cooperation to come in and say, 'Listen, it's not working. Let's start over,'" Cruz said.
