Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wants President Barack Obama to know that he should take his broken promises tour elsewhere, according to a statement his office released Wednesday, just hours before Obama is supposed to speak in the Lone Star State.
President Obamas trip to Texas brings nothing with it but broken promises, the freshman Republican senator said in the statement. He promised that Americans could keep their health care plans. We were told premiums would go down, that jobs would be created. And we now know these are all false promises.
Cruzs comments come as the president visits Dallas to promote the Affordable Care Act as well as speak at a fundraiser.
[I]n spite of all Texas has done to resist the biggest entitlement program of this generation, Obamacare is reducing health care options, increasing costs and hurting jobs, the statement said. It has no place in Texas and must be repealed.
President Obama should take his broken promises tour elsewhere so Texans can continue focusing on the solutions that have allowed our state to become and remain the nations economic and job creation powerhouse, Cruz added.
The White House had pushed back against the notion that this is a politically motivated visit.
This isnt a political issue. This is about making sure people where they live have access to good quality, affordable health care, said David Simas, White House Deputy Senior Adviser for Communications and Strategy.
I love that guy!
God bless Sen Ted Cruz and Texas!! I hope our Gov told 0 the same thing.
Good! It’s great to finally see someone telling liar Obama where to get off.
Go Ted Go .
I think it’s pretty obvious by now this Obamacare is going to crash and burn in a big way and Obama will go down as the worst POTUS in history —Oh wait! No need for that! Democrats will just blame Republicans and Republicans will run and crawl into a fetal position and the low info low IQ voters will believe it then Hitlery Clinton will run in 2016 and will win and we start all over again with this BS.
Obama talks to Texans like we are as stupid as his followers.
Well, “ homey don’t play that....”
Stay out of Texas you POS.
In a statement, Perry said the president was trying to "salvage his ill-conceived and unpopular program from a Titanic fate."
He noted that Medicaid already consumes a quarter of the state budget, and said Texas won't accept a "one-size-fits-all Washington mandate."
Perry added: "Texans aren't the reason Obamacare is crumbling. Obamacare is the reason Obamacare is crumbling."
Go Ted Go!
Run the turkey out of Texas.
“I love that guy!”
MSNBC tomorrow: “Shades of Confederacy in Cruz’ ‘Threat’ to First Black President”
Let’s see, a President worshipped as the second coming by his party visiting Dallas in November. Let’s hope this isn’t a sequel.
Imagine the “Obama broken promises apology tour”. His writers would need he better part of a year to compile all of the broken promises, and then put them into writing and into Obama’s teleprompter. The speech for his tour would take a whole day to read, and he’d get whiplash from all the head turns reading the teleprompter.
But, at the end of the speech, he’d still say it wasn’t his fault, and it was Bush’s and the tea party’s fault.
This should be the unified response of every single Republican.
Cruz is rapidly becoming my number one choice for 2014.
He, Mike lee and Louie Gohmert, honest men among crooks and thieves.
Do not go near the Dallas Book Depository!!!!!!!/S

Do not go near the Dallas Book Depository!!!!!!! No /s!
