Sen. Ted Cruz: ‘I Intend to Make 2016 a Referendum on Repealing Obamacare’

“There’s no doubt we need commonsense health care reform,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told a forum in New Hampshire Monday night. But he said that does not include a single word of Obamacare:

“I’ve been proud to lead the fight to stop Obamacare in the United States Senate, (working) against the Washington cartel. And there are a lot of politicians in Washington that have largely given up. They don’t believe Obamacare can ever be repealed, including, sadly, a fair number of Republicans.

“I don’t believe that. I intend to make 2016 a referendum on repealing Obamacare, and if I’m elected president, we will repeal every word of Obamacare and we’ll pass commonsense health insurance reform to make health insurance personal and portable and affordable.”
