Ted Cruz continues to bomb blast Obamacare, but the fact is we need the solution. If Ted Cruz wants to be relevant, he had better come up with specific solutions to America’s needs. In the absence of that, his presence is not constructive.
If there are things in the program that he and Republicans want to improve, what are they?
If they simply want to ignore the problem of 50 million uninsured Americans, then yell that to the world so we all understand that position.
Republicans have already said they want to abandon the social services that FDR brought to the nation as a matter of the urgent need. Are these things no longer urgent?
The answer is millions of Americans rely upon Social Security, Medicare, and now Affordable Care. The challenge is paying for that. So, how do Republicans intend to pay for it?
Do they want to grow the economic pie?
Do they want to reduce other expenses?
Do they want to make government more efficient?
Let’s hear specifics?
A 42 year old bright and well educated lawyer whose only job has been working for the government isn’t likely to have the answers? If he is, where has that genius been in application? So far, Ted Cruz is just a bag of political wind.
What about Marco Rubio who is of similar character and qualifications? He had the ball on immigration reform and he and his party dropped the ball out of bounds. From where did this professional politician get his skill, knowledge and experience to address the nation’s considerable needs?
In both instances, they don’t have what it takes.
Neither does Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton is another politician, however, she has amassed experience and demonstrated ability to work with Republicans and Wall Street. If Republicans want to take the lead, they had better find a successful woman CEO of a major Fortune 500 enterprise, or call up Al Mullally before he goes to Microsoft.
