But now that date has come and gone, and even though Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare, Cruz says he still believes it can be done. Why? Well:
The reason Cruz thinks the law can still be repealed is that he and others had the high-profile fight to defund Obamacare in the first place. "I think we are seeing the fruits of the battle that so many millions of Americans engaged in last fall to stop Obamacare," Cruz said. "I think the direct result of that fight was to elevate the national debate about the harms that Obamacare has caused. And as a consequence, I think the terrain has changed, and I believe we will repeal Obamacare."In other words, LOL Cruz thinks Republicans can still repeal Obamacare because they failed to repeal Obamacare. And as stupid as that sounds, I guess it sort of makes sense, because—as I'm sure Cruz would argue if asked to elaborate—you can't repeal something that's already been repealed.
In fact, when you spin the words that way, the True Genius of LOL Cruz becomes apparent, because if he'd succeeded in repealing Obamacare last year, Republicans would have nothing to do this year. But he did fail, and because of that failure, they can Keep Hope Alive. Or something.
