After meeting with leaders for lunch to discuss healthcare, Cruz said the he thinks they are close to resolving the remaining issues with the healthcare bill and are “getting to yes”.
However, Cruz was abundantly clear, “Failure is not an option.”
As usual, Senator Cruz is absolutely right. Republican’s have been campaigning on this promise for almost eight years. When the Republicans say they want to repeal and replace Obamacare with a free market solution, they win elections in massive landslides.
Since 2010, there have been over 1000 Democrats defeated from national to local elections. The Democratic party is literally a remnant of what it once was. The vast majority of this can be attributed to the GOP promising to repeal and replace Obamacare. God help them if they screw this up.
