“I’m hoping other Republicans will join me and start going after this guy, and say we’re not going to let it happen again.”Then, there is noted former Republican Senator from Pennsylvania, and noted “Wacko Bird” himself, Rick Santorum, who is occupied these days selling his Christian film business while also continuing to raise money for the cause of Rick Santorum. Senator Santorum is not liking Cruz staking out GOP primary voters to his right. In an attempt to get to the right of Senator Cruz, Santorum has said that the effort to defund the ACA did more harm than good. Cruz and other Republicans know that the public will like Obamacare and they know it will work. This is what they fear most and why there has been such an organized and well funded effort to damage the ACA and to prevent it from functioning as intended from its inception. Back in July, during an interview with Sean Hannity, Cruz and Hannity lamented that if they don’t repeal it now “Obamacare will never, ever get repealed.” Yes, the truth is that Republicans don’t like the ACA because it is very bad for their brand and “they’re terrified that Americans are going to like it.” Worse, the Teabully brand also stands to be tarnished further as once the ACA is fully up and running, the base of the Teabully branch of the GOP:
“Medicare recipients will get a benefit worth several hundred dollars a year.”Yes, thanks to Republicans like Senator Ted Cruz, the ACA is now more popular than the GOP. And you can even find that on the Drudge Report. So, keep talking, and talking, and talking Senator Cruz. Because if the Democrats get the House of Representatives back into their hands, it could be two more years of complete Democratic control of the Congress. And just as it was during the first two years of the Obama Administration, a lot of good just might get done. And if the fears of Republicans like Ted Cruz are right, Obamacare does work and people start to like it even more than they do now, just like seniors who say “keep your Government hands off my Medicare,” you will hear Democrats and the country rejoicing. You might also hear the country singing from a familiar Ira Gershwin song: “No, no they can’t take that away from me. No they can’t take that away from me.”
