Ted Cruz: Letting ObamaCare Play Out Means Letting the 'American People Suffer'

'Basically inflict a bunch of harm on the American people and hope we benefit politically from it. What a terrible, cynical approach'

Ted Cruz: GOP’ers Who Want To Implement Obamacare Want to See ‘The American People Suffer’ (Mediaite)

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday morning where reporter Dana Bash questioned him about the efficacy of his position on the government shutdown over the Affordable Care Act. Cruz said that those Republicans who want to implement the ACA and hasten its collapse are misguided.

Bash asked Cruz if he believed that Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sibelius should resign. Cruz replied that he believed she should. Bash questioned him about the politics of that. She asked, if Sebelius is such a liability for the Obama administration, whether Republicans benefit more from her remaining in her position.
