Jeb Bush on Ted Cruz’s Tactics: ‘Have a Little Bit of Self-Restraint’ (Video)
Former Governor Jeb Bush weighed in on Senator Ted Cruz today on ABC’s “This Week.” Bush said Cruz needs to,
“Have a little bit of self-restraint.”
ABC News reported:
During an interview for “This Week,” former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush encouraged Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz – who told ABC News that he would do “anything” to stop Obamacare – to come up with an alternative and show some restraint if his aim was to repeal the president’s signature healthcare law.
“I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative…we could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles…and two, show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work,” Bush said.
“So have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically — a better approach to see the massive dysfunction,” he said, after being asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl what his message would be for Cruz, who is still keen on repealing Obamacare.
Bush said the linking of government funding to the funding of Obamacare by Republicans was a tactical misstep.
Speaking of “self-restraint,” it would be nice if Jeb would have some restraint and quit bashing fellow Republicans.
That would be nice for a change.
