Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday doubled down on his call to arms in “defunding Obamacare,” even if Senate Democrats are highly unlikely to approve any short-term spending deal this September that impugns President Obama’s signature domestic achievement.

On health care, Mr. Cruz said Mr. Obama’s law is a “job killer” that has forced businesses to drop coverage or shift workers to part-time status. He said these changes have an outsized effect on the most vulnerable, including minorities and single moms.
Rising to an oft-repeated challenge, Mr. Cruz offered three health care reforms that Republican may support in lieu of Mr. Obama’ plan.
Go, Ted Cruz! Most Americans support defunding Obamacare.
