Ted Cruz: ‘The Moon Might Be As Intimidating As Obamacare’


Delivering extended remarks against funding Obamacare on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) compared taking on the health reform law to the herculean challenge of sending a man to the moon.

Cruz argued that Americans were historically never ones to accept defeat, whether it be standing up the Great Britain during the Revolutionary War, Nazi Germany in World War II, or the Soviet Union during the Space Race of the 20th century.

“So we get to Obamacare,” Cruz said. “What do all those voices say? Can’t be stopped, you can’t win. Cannot defund it. Mr. President, by any measure, Obamacare is a far less intimidating foe than those that I have discussed, with the possible exception of the moon. The moon might be as intimidating as Obamacare.”
