In a witty, optimistic, and passionate speech that showed why he is the politician in D.C. that most resonates with the Tea Party and conservative grassroots, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday said he believed Obamacare will be completely repealed.
Check it out:
“I am absolutely convinced that we are going to repeal every single word of Obamacare,” Cruz, a potential presidential contender who is leading among Tea Party voters in nearly every 2016 presidential poll, said to a standing ovation.
Speaking at an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the Tea Party movement that was sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots, Cruz said that Democrats are “running fast from Obamacare.” He noted even the late-night comedians have turned on the disastrous law that he has worked relentlessly to try to defund.
He quipped that he was repeating himself when speaking about not listening to what Democrats and the media have to say and even impersonated Jay Leno’s mockery of Obamacare. But his main message, consistent with what he has said before, is that a grassroots revolution similar to the one that ushered in President Ronald Reagan after Jimmy Carter’s failed domestic and foreign policies in the late 1970s is stirring outside of the Beltway today.
