Jeb Bush to Ted Cruz: Have Self-Restraint in Obamacare Fight

Jeb Bush to Ted Cruz: Have Self-Restraint in Obamacare Fight

By    |   Sunday, 20 October 2013 02:08 PM EDT

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has a word of advice for fellow Republican Ted Cruz: Show some self-restraint in the fight against Obamacare.

"I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative," Bush told ABC's Jonathan Karl in an interview aired Sunday on "This Week."

"We could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles … [and] show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work," Bush said.

Bush urged Cruz, a freshman senator from Texas, to "have a little bit of self-restraint."

Cruz led the effort to tie defunding of the Affordable Care Act to a continuing budget resolution. He failed to rally mainstream Republicans to the cause, leading to a 16-day government shutdown.

Cruz has said he will not rule out anything, including another government shutdown, in his fight against Obamacare. In a CNN interview aired Sunday, Cruz called people like Bush "gray beards" who want to let Americans suffer in an effort to help the party politically.

Bush himself told ABC, "It might actually be a politically, a better approach to see the massive dysfunction."

Both Cruz and Bush have been talked about as possible presidential contenders for 2016. Told that a recent Gallup poll showing 60 percent of Americans would like to see a third party, Bush said those feelings would not affect his decision to run.

But, he added, "It deeply disturbs me as an American that loves my country that we have this dysfunction. And it troubles me."
