Cruz Exposes Trump ObamaCare Lies
America Thinker ^ | February 27, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski

Posted on 02/27/2016 4:10:12 PM PST by raptor22

One of the most amazing abilities Donald Trump has is being able to lie about his own record and get away with it. In an exchange with Sen. Ted Cruz during Thursday’s CNN debate in Houston, Trump was directly challenged on his past documented support for single-payer universal health care, and he lied again. As TheBlaze recorded the exchange:

Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz cross-examined 2016 rival Donald Trump on Thursday’s GOP debate stage, getting the billionaire businessman on record denying many of his former positions on health care.

The more Cruz lies the further he drops in the poll. Now that moron Marco is beating him. Cruz will be out in 2 weeks...if he has any pride.

This p*sses me off.

Single payer is different than Universal.

Universal HC means that everyone has access to affordable healthcare, by one means or another. The disabled are cared for. People with PECs have an opportunity for healthcare. Those who can pay for affordable insurance do.

Single-payer HC is a one-sized-fits-all socialist scheme that doesn’t work.

Most people agree with UHC. We don’t want grandma dying for lack of care. Most people understand that SPHC is a disaster everywhere it’s been tried.

Yes. Trump is for UHC. And so am I. And so are most Americans. All that means is that there’s affordable access to healthcare for everyone.

Trump is not, and never has been, for SPHC. He’s stated this over and over again.

Cruz PACs have taken more campaign “donations” from Wall Street firms than any other candidate except for Jeb, including more than even Hillary:

What kind of health care does Trump’s foreign visa workers get? Do they have us subsidizing their captive labor health care through obamacare? You can put an end to foreign captive labor right now if you require their employers to pay the complete health care bills of their captive foreign laborers. The plantation owners 160 years ago had to provide for the health care of their captive foreign laborers.

In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19 yr old US Army Cavalry Scout Private who had just spent 8 months at war sat out on a street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. He sat there on his duffle bag with his Battalion around him for 4 days waiting for the buses to come and take him to the King Fahad Airport so he could go home. Unfortunately, the politicians of the day never planned for how to bring so many soldiers home after the war ended so there was a shortage of planes. Politicians are great at talking, but terrible at doing. Finally, the buses came, and took the young man to the airport. The planes waiting were from Tower Air. The owner of Tower Air had volunteered his planes and staff to bring soldiers home for the cost of fuel only. Happily, the young veteran got home just in time for Easter weekend in 1991, and spent that time emotionally healing with friends and family surrounding him. That Private was me. The Airline owner – Donald J Trump. That is why I will vote Trump. Loyalty for loyalty, respect for respect. Any questions?

..And we know what wrecking balls do...Wreck.

The fundamental Constitutional concept is still sound. It is the add-ons and the garbage, the extra-Constitutional agencies and alleged duties the Federal Government has usurped and piled on it that is the problem.

That's no reason to tear down the whole thing.

A controlled and targeted removal of the offending material is in order--pretty tough to do with a wrecking ball.

Great story. He and Ross Perot are alike in that sense. Trump is a promoter, no doubt, but he never promotes his charitable contributions to everyday people. Others of course throw up signs and have parades so others can see what gifts they bring.

Thanks for sharing.

"The owner of that airline was Donald J. Trump

You may want to check that out. I find nowhere does it say he was the owner.

Tower Air

You must have heard that Trump said he would deport, then bring back the ‘good ones’ and expedite the process for them, haven’t you. Google it. He said it last year.

Check out my post at #30. I try to never take anything at face value without doing some research. My research shows Donald J. Trump DID NOT own Tower Air.

A great STORY is all it is. Tower Airlines WAS NOT owned by Donald J. Trump.

He did own Trump Airlines aka Trump Shuttle which went bankrupt and I cannot find any article that says it went to pick up service men.

“Single-payer HC is a one-sized-fits-all socialist scheme that doesn’t work.” Here’s the quote that matters, by one “Marie.” If she wishes to debate it, she should look up the guy that says it works well in Canada and incredibly well in Scotland.

Tom Cotton was the only to vote against it. Are you going to start trashing Senator Jeff Sessions and Mike Lee also? Are Tom Cotton and Donald Trump officially the only known, living politicians who pass your purity test?

http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/241355-senate-votes-to-approve-Iran-review-bill

Cruz: “I voted no on cloture because we should have insisted on amendments to put real teeth in this bill,” the Texas Republican said. “Ultimately, I voted yes on final passage because it may delay, slightly, President Obama’s ability to lift the Iran sanctions and it ensures we will have a Congressional debate on the merits of the Iran deal.”

Cruz is part of the GOPe. He has already endorsed Rubio over Trump. There is only one candidate who is a true outsider and the one the GOPe wants to destroy even if it means destroying the GOP. If Rubio loses in FL, Romney is in the wings.

Cruz is on his way out. Except for a win in TX, Cruz goes down in flames on Super Tuesday.

None of which happened. The Republican senate rolled over for Obama. Again. They did a great job for Democrats.

Omnibus? Thanks to Cruz and his buddies in the Freedom Caucus, we have Ryan. But since Teddy was Boehner’s legal counsel prior to being a senator, that fits as well.

So his yay vote turns his grandstanding against the Iran deal into exactly that. Grandstanding.

Just like that photo above with Rubio. His Senate accomplishments are???

I don’t doubt what you say is so, but that’s not what Marie said. I do wonder whether it “works” in Canada or Scotland, though, so I agree with Marie there.
