Ted Cruz demands an apology from President Obama for Obamacare

According to a January 26, 2014 post in the National Review, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas had a modest proposal for something President Barack Obama should say during the upcoming State of the Union address. He suggested that the president apologize for Obamacare.

“For the State of the Union, one of the things President Obama really ought to do is look in the TV camera and say to the over 5 million Americans all across this country who’ve had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare, to look in the camera and say, ‘I’m sorry — I told you if you like your health-insurance plan, you can keep it. I told you if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and that wasn’t true — I’m sorry.’”

Cruz went on to suggest that the president should then move to actually fix the problem.

One has to congratulate Cruz for boldness. He is suggesting that President Obama do two impossible (for him) things. First he demanded that the president apologize for something. Then he suggested that Obama should actually undertake to fix a problem of his own making.

While the president may acknowledge that Obamacare has had its problems, he is not likely to accept responsibility for it nor offer real solutions to fixing it. He is more likely to blame Republicans and then suggest that by and by, with a few minor tweaks, that the health care reform law will indeed run as advertised, if everyone would just have a little patience.
