Cruz: Repeal 'every word' of ObamaCare
The Hill ^ | June 07, 2014 | Alexandra Jaffe

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for the repeal of “every blessed word of ObamaCare” in a fiery speech to a crowd of conservatives in Texas on Friday.

Speaking at the Texas Republican Convention, the potential presidential contender hit on a number of conservative issues in a campaign-style speech that was punctuated by cries of, “Run, Ted!” 

"Today liberty is under assault like never before," Cruz told the crowd, according to the Houston chronicle. "And again today Texans will stand up and lead the fight for freedom."

Cruz spoke prior to another presidential prospect, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Although the two would likely be fierce rivals if they ran, Cruz said he was part of a long line of Texans that have “always led the fight for freedom,” including Gov. Rick Perry (R).

He also called for an audit of the Federal Reserve, the abolition of the Internal Revenue Service and declared a need to defend “all of the Bill of Rights,” an apparent reference to the debate over gun control.

"There's a whole lot of mischief going on in Washington right now," he said.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan


"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792


"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams


"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

You gotta give it to Cruz. He didn’t come to Washington to blend in. His “compass” is not the least bit effected by the magnetic pull of DC.

Four Words. Every.. Word.. Of.. It.

Hand Obama his handiwork back to him on a Silver Platter.

Texas picked a good one.

He’d be more effective if we had a dozen like him in the Senate.

right now it’s just
Cruz, Lee, Inhofe

and sometimes
Paul, Rubio

and increasingly less

Need to _repeal_ the SCOTUS _decision_ about it being LEGAL, too. What a butchery of what our fathers clearly stated in USConstitution. Of course NSA secret info provides overwhelming ability to bribe congressmen, judges, generals, CIA agents, news editors...

Cruz is right. This law is so terrible that it should be repealed in its entirety. If there are good parts in the law, they should be re-passed separately, in stand-alone legislation.
