“What Republicans don’t often do well is focus on, ‘How do we win?’” said Texas senator Ted Cruz, speaking to bloggers at the Heritage Foundation in Washington Tuesday afternoon.
He’s right about that. Most Republicans are wanting to appease or please or snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Don’t want to offend anyone, after all….
Cruz says he is focused on winning on Republicans’ most important issue, Obamacare, by pushing to defund the whole law in this fall’s upcoming budget battle. “I think defunding Obamacare, the fight in the next 62 days, is likely to prove the most important battle that this Congress faces,” Cruz said.
Last week, Cruz introduced legislation to strip appropriations bills of all funding of Obamacare and is threatening to hold up Congress’s next budget fight over the issue. Cruz said this budget battle is the “best” and perhaps the “last” chance for conservatives to cripple the law.
“If we don’t do it now, in all likelihood, we never will,” Cruz said. “On January 1, the exchanges kick in and the subsidies kick in, and the Obama administration’s plan is very simple. It is to get as many Americans as they can addicted to the subsidies, addicted to the sugar, because they know that in modern times, no major entitlement, once it was implemented, has ever been unwound.”
Polls show that while Americans oppose Obamacare and support repealing and delaying the law, fewer support defunding it. Asked about this, Cruz dismissed the polls and said it’s incumbent on conservatives to “stand and fight” and make a public appeal.
But the nerdy Republicans would have to stand up to the school bully first. Because the massive onslaught will be worse than at Omaha Beach on D-Day. The defense of the Holy Grail of Progressive Liberalism will be all out Nuclear War. Do the Republican have the stomach for War?
I kind of doubt it.
Then ObamaCare become reality and it will NEVER EVER Go away. And this country will never be the same.
