Why Ted Cruz doesn’t support the bipartisan Obamacare bailout



Why Ted Cruz doesnt support bipartisan Obamacare bailout

President Trump needs it. Most Republicans on Capitol Hill are willing to accept it. Nearly every Democrat is salivating over the victory they’ll achieve by bailing out Obamacare while the GOP controls the House, Senate, and White House.

With Graham-Cassidy dead, the best “hope” for movement on the healthcare front coming from Congress is the Alexander-Murray bipartisan Obamacare bailout bill. Currently, three conservative Senators are known to oppose it: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. They’re joined in opposition by a handful of moderate Republicans and liberal Democrats, though for very different reasons. Cruz summed up his reason for opposing the bill in two sentences:

“The American people did not send us here to bail out insurance companies. They sent us here to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

I couldn’t agree more.
