  •  I think he wants to be President- and he may be. (1+ / 0-)

    My theory is that Cruz wants to be the undisputed champion enemy of Obamacare.  I think he believes it will crash and burn - as many smart people do - and he will ride to the Presidency on a wave of "I told you so!".

    Ironically, even if that were to happen, the genie of "we all deserve to have health insurance at a reasonable rate" is out of the bottle and no matter what happens we will have universal health coverage sooner than later.  Cruz may become president, but he will have to fix the ACA is he does - he will not be able to repeal it.  

    I think the ACA will work, with adjustments, and the Cruz strategy will end up making him Governor of Texas for life or some other silliness.  Maybe a vice president in a Jeb Bush administration - god forbid?

    •  The problem with this (0+ / 0-)

      is that no one who truly wanted to run for president under the Republican banner would so deliberately set out to make enemies of so many powerful Republicans, which he has absolutely and deliberately done.
