Senator Ted Cruz Gets It. Will Others?

Senator Ted Cruz has come out forcefully today against half measures on Obamacare. Instead he wants the GOP to unite behind completely defunding the law. As the Senator noted:

Delaying only one aspect of this tangled mess leaves Americans holding the tab for an irreparably broken law they do not support. Moreover, it leaves in motion many of the most egregious parts of the law, ensuring they will take root in just a few short months. This is untenable.I agree with the lead Senate author of Obamacare, Democrat Senator Max Baucus, that Obamacare has become a “huge train wreck.”

Good for him. No half measures in this. Defund it entirely and repeal it entirely as soon as we can. But I would be prepared to shut down the government over this and the GOP should get ready to. Cruz is rapidly working his way onto my list of preferred Presidential candidates in 2016 and bold leadership like this helps tremendously.By the way, Senator Ted Cruz will be at the RedState Gathering. Will you?
