Video: Ted Cruz Bashes Obamacare and Talks ‘Single Biggest Lie in Politics’ in Iowa – Defenders of Freedom
10/26/13 – Ted Cruz spoke on Saturday at the Defenders of Freedom fundraiser in Iowa, hosted by Republican Congressman Steve King. Cruz spent a significant portion of his speech going after the Obamacare rollout and cracked a few jokes at the expense of President Obama, Joe Biden, and even some of his Republican colleagues.
Cruz said one of his daughters told him she wants to work in the Senate too but when she gets in “daddy’ll be dead by then.” He joked, I wondered if Carolina had been speaking to Republican leadership.”
At numerous points Cruz compared the current economic situation to the malaise of the late Jimmy Carter years, and drew direct contrasts between the economy under Ronald Reagan and under Obama. He said that in the Senate, “we have spent virtually zero time even talking about jobs and economic growth; it simply isn’t a priority in Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate.” Cruz also said that the “single biggest lie in politics” is the notion that Republicans are the party of the rich.
He touted the massive grassroots campaign that rose up in opposition to drone strikes, gun control, immigration, Syria, and, of course, Obamacare. He found it more than a little humorous how Democrats are now embracing the idea of delaying the health care law.
“I seem to recall—-it couldn’t have been more than two weeks ago—-when every newspaper, every television station, every political graybeard said ‘It is impossible that the president will ever ever ever delay the individual mandate or do anything to delay Obamacare! You guys are nuts for suggesting this!'”
He referred to his filibuster and joked, “21 hours is a long time. I mean, that’s almost as long as it takes to sign up on the Obamacare website.”

About Ask Marion
I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!!
"The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy";
"Do something that scares you every day!";
"The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it.
After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare.
But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds,
as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country.
And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
