Senator Ted Cruz items

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

Ted Cruz: Voters will feel 'sense of betrayal' over Obamacare failure

Pete Kasperowicz, Washington Examiner

"I tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we're going to repeal Obamacare, and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent," Cruz said. "And the American people are entirely justified in saying, 'any politician who told me that and voted the other way didn't tell me the truth. They lied to me.'"

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority. If this Obamacare repeal bill fails then it will be obvious to all that the only sure path to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, rebuild our economy and build the border wall lies through the Republican Primary Elections.

Hillary Clinton’s NSC Running Trump’s Iran Policy

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's guidance to President Trump that he should falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear deal amounts to looking the other way on Iran’s violations and is little different than what Hillary Clinton would have done if she had won the 2016 election.

Why the Cruz amendment is smart policy

Stephen Moore, CNN

If the GOP is smart enough to rally behind the Cruz amendment, and health costs and premiums start falling almost immediately, we will start to have what Obamacare never delivered: affordable care. And by the way, Trump will get reelected in a landslide and so will congressional Republicans.

Trump’s Quiet Live-Fire Confrontation With Iran

U.S. forces have opened fire on Iranian-backed forces in Syria at least three times since May. Three of the incidents took place at al-Tanf, a remote desert outpost near the point where the Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian borders meet.

Iran Is Not Complying with the Nuclear Deal

Fred Fleitz and Ambassador Bolton argue it is folly to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with its obligations under Obama's nuclear deal. It is time for President Trump to fulfill his campaign promise to take America out of Obama’s dangerous Iran nuclear deal.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked

The problem in the Senate Republican Conference is Mitch McConnell’s unwillingness to actually pursue conservative alternatives to Obamacare. We've won one round, now it's time for conservatives to hang tough and force McConnell to move the Consumer Freedom Option.

Ted Cruz remakes his image in Texas ahead of re-election race

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Gone is Cruz the ideological warrior, who cultivated a national base by railing against his party's establishment and scorning his Republican colleagues — often by name, a breach of time-honored Senate decorum. So, nearly four years after defying Republican leaders to lead a government shutdown aimed at forcing former President Barack Obama to defund his signature healthcare law, Cruz is telling mostly friendly crowds that he is negotiating a compromise on legislation to partially repeal Obamacare.

McConnell Refuses To Work With Conservatives On Obamacare Replacement

We urge CHQ readers to call Senator McConnell’s office (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him you want a vote on the Consumer Freedom Option. Tell him it’s time for Senate Republicans to let the American people know whether they stand with consumers who want choice and freedom or with the Democrats and their abusive and intrusive Obamcare healthcare mandates.

Ted Cruz faces tough Obamacare questions at otherwise friendly town hall

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Near the tail end of a forum with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that was sponsored and run by Concerned Veterans for America, a conservative group, an argument broke out over the merits of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Cruz said he is pleased with the progress of negotiations to repeal the law in the Senate, although he conceded during the forum: "It's been bumpy. I am not certain we'll get it done. I hope we will. I believe we will."

When Ted Cruz, GOP saw troubled future of Obamacare repeal

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Republicans are fighting among themselves over a bill that would make substantial changes in Obamacare but leave the structure of the law intact. And several GOP lawmakers — enough to scuttle any final agreement — are afraid of cuts in subsidies, in coverage, and in the Medicaid expansion. It all shows that Cruz was right back in 2013. Once Obamacare's subsidies and benefits began to flow, "this thing is here forever."

Time for Conservatives to Call Talk Radio

It’s time to call talk radio and your Senators.  Tell your Senators and your favorite talk radio show host that they need to get behind the Cruz amendment to the Senate health care bill.

Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Al Franken Is 'Sick,' All Right

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

This is why conservatives roll their eyes when liberal journalists lecture about the need for civility. They adore Franken's bilious nastiness as "full-throated liberalism" but freak out when someone uses Barack Obama's middle name. Their judgment of civility is as well-honed as their judgment of "news." It's all about whose ox is being gored.
