Ted Cruz is emerging as one of the GOP’s most vocal opponents of Obamacare.
He’s particularly worried that Americans will get “addicted” to
healthcare that’s actually affordable, coverage for pre-existing
conditions, preventive screenings, vision and dental care for children,
better care and protection for seniors, combined with no annual limits
on coverage, and the fact that insurance companies can no longer drop
you when you’re sick.
This kind of dangerous socialism is something Cruz has seen first
hand, following his safe and healthy birth in a socialist Canadian
hospital in 1970.
According to Cruz, just a taste of better, lower-cost healthcare will
get Americans “addicted” to the sugary sweetness of not watching your
child die of an otherwise treatable disease. He’s scared that once
Americans realize that their risk of medical bankruptcy has diminished,
they may never want to go back to the good old days of worrying that
insurance company “Death Panels” will deny their claims or drop their
To stop this, Cruz is willing to shut down the US government, throw
the economy into a tailspin and say a prayer that there won’t be any new
pandemics overwhelming the nation’s Emergency Rooms anytime in the
future. In his mind, Emergency Rooms are where 30 million Americans
should be camped out each day getting their cancer treatments,
mammograms and colonoscopies or something.
Or maybe he just doesn’t want Americans to enjoy the kind of quality
healthcare he and the Palin family know is available when they need it
up in Canada, eh?
