Ted Cruz to renew all out assault on Obamacare in 2014

According to a January 8, 2014 story in the Wall Street Journal, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas indicated that he will renew efforts in the new year to repeal Obamacare, the health care reform law that has proven to be so devastating to so many people. Cruz suggests that a number of upcoming votes, to fund federal agencies for the current fiscal year and to raise the debt ceiling, are perfect opportunities to attach and push for a repeal of the Obamacare law.

Cruz, whose approach to politics is similar to Ulysses S. Grant’s approach to war, is showing an uncommon relentlessness when it comes to repealing Obamacare. He regards it as the number one inhibiter to a vibrant, growing economy that creates jobs. Therefore putting the health care law on the ash heap of history is a prerequisite to getting the economy moving, in Cruz’s view.

This stance has angered Democratic defenders of Obamacare but has also annoyed some Republican opponents of the health care law. Many Republicans are of the view that Obamacare is collapsing of its own weight and therefore it is unnecessary and risky to go after it proactively. Cruz, on the other hand, is of the opinion that the law needs repealing and that the constant troubles surrounding it provide more support and opportunity for doing so.
