This should be fun
Ted Cruz, one of the loudest critics of Obamacare, will soon be using it for health insurance coverage.
"We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we're in the process of transitioning over to do that," Cruz, a Republican candidate for president, told The Des Moines Register Tuesday.
Cruz's wife, Heidi, is going on an unpaid leave of up absence from her job at Goldman Sachs to join Cruz full time on the campaign trail, Cruz told the Register.
His excuse for not standing by his principles and refusing to sully himself with dirty Obamacare coverage? "Well, it is written in the law that members will be on the exchanges without subsidies just like millions of Americans so that's—I think the same rules should apply to all of us. Members of Congress should not be exempt." Sure, it's about following the law. The law that he says is unconstitutional.
Somehow, I don't think the rabid tea party voters—or his fellow crazy candidates—are going to approve.
