I’ve heard it said that everything is bigger in Texas. If so, then nothing can be bigger than the Texas-sized ego of Ted Cruz. This was especially apparent during a recent interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley.
It seems as if it wasn’t enough that Mr. Cruz’s efforts led to a federal government shutdown. Now, Mr. Cruz wants to ensure that shutdown remains in effect. Despite the fact that there have been 44 attempts to undermine “Obamacare”, Mr. Cruz wants to use the debt ceiling as a means to advance his own personal agenda against “Obamacare”.
Mr. Cruz’s rationale for this is simple. According to him, “Obamacare” “would destroy the private health care system.” Really Mr. Cruz? Apparently you haven’t noticed, but the private health care system IS ALREADY BROKEN! Don’t believe me, just ask someone that has a pre-existing condition that can’t afford health care! “Privatize” is the Republican Tea Party answer to “fix” everything. The only thing health care privatization “fixes” is the bank accounts of doctors and politicians like Ted Cruz.
Mr. Cruz went on to state that “Obamacare isn’t working”. Once again, really Mr. Cruz? “Obamacare” was only implemented 5 days ago. Don’t you think it’s a bit premature to state that the system isn’t working? Or better yet Mr. Cruz, are you afraid that “Obamacare” just might actually be successful?
At this point, I feel there are a few things quite apparent here. First of all, the angst that Mr. Cruz feels towards “Obamacare” is nothing more than a manifestation of the jealousy he feels towards President Obama himself. The reality is Mr. Obama is President and Mr. Cruz is not. More importantly, Mr. Cruz will NEVER BE PRESIDENT. As a result, he will never be taken seriously. At least as seriously as he wants to be taken. Mr. Cruz has always been nothing, will always be nothing, and his current actions only serve to reinforce this.
Ted Cruz is nothing more than a modern day Napoleon. Texas’ed sized ego with an equally large inferiority complex. Completely out of touch with reality. A bane upon society. A loser in every sense of the word. “Obamacare” won’t destroy the private healthcare system. It’s fair to say at this point “Obamacare” will work. The only thing amiss here Mr. Ted Cruz is YOU and the rest of your Republican Tea Party puppets!!
