Ted Cruz Tries, Barack Obama Lies

Moments after Texas Senator Ted Cruz finished his 21 hour plus filibuster marathon bringing attention to the effort to defund Obamacare, the President took to Twitter to say this:



His statement is a lie, of course. Forbes writer Avik Roy also writes this inconvenient truth today:

“many 27-year-olds will face steep increases in the underlying cost of individually-purchased insurance under Obamacare. For the states where we have data—the 36 reported by HHS, plus nine others that we had compiled for our map that HHS didn’t report—rates will go up for men by an average of 97 percent; for women, 55 percent.”

The numbers don’t look good for Obamacare. Scratch that. The numbers look horrible. Not only that, but Obamacare is going to have fewer doctors just as our population is aging and thousands who don’t need insurance but are being forced buy insurance are going to be dumped into the system.

Does this look like what President Obama promised regarding Obamacare? Here’s a couple broken promises via National Review Online.

So, Senator Ted Cruz is trying to stop this madness. What maddness? A health system that increases costs, decreases coverage, where there are less doctors and less access to the doctors because more people will seek them.

Obamacare is a disaster. Oh, and Ted Cruz’s filibuster is giving the GOP room to negotiate. Imagine that.
