His supporters may laud him for his ideological fight against attending 50 million uninsured Americans by attempting to pull the rug out from their being served, however, most Americans, most of which will benefit from the Affordable Care Act, witness another example of Republican obstructionism.

Like President Obama, Ted Cruz is "off the charts brilliant" as Professor Alan Dershowitz describes.
"After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor. While at Harvard Law, Cruz was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review."
Also, like President Obama he hasn't applied his brilliance outside working for the government. That makes him a professional politician without chief executive experience. America doesn't need another one of those.
Say goodnight, Ted.
