Ted Cruz thinks it’s “reasonable” to argue ACA’s preexisting conditions rules are now unconstitutional
“I think that is a reasonable position for the Justice Department to take.”
By Dylan Scott

"Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), as vociferous an Obamacare critic as you’ll find, sounds on board with the latest legal challenge to the health care law that could lead to protections for people with preexisting conditions being found unconstitutional."
"Cruz told Vox that he thought the Justice Department’s position in the lawsuit, that the law’s rules on preexisting conditions should be invalidated along with the individual mandate, was “reasonable” and defended the foundation of the case being brought by his home state of Texas in a brief interview at the Capitol."
"Half of Texans below the age of 65 have at least one pre-existing condition. "This is a huge deal. First, if the administration’s position prevails, millions of Americans will lose the protections they thought they had against being denied coverage" https://t.co/Btu7UWJ48a" — Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) June 13, 2018





====================================================

Evidently, Ted Cruz doesn't care to realize that Healthcare is the Number One Priority of all Americans.

Republican Ted Cruz is cruising for bad news in his state of Texas with his wanting Texas residents to not have the protection of a Pre-Existing Conditions Clause in their healthcare. By contrast, his political opponent Democrat Beto O'Rourke is fighting for all Texans to be protected by retaining that very important element in healthcare that even Trump, until recently, had said should be kept. Cruz obviously does not care about the health of the people of Texas and the great expense they will have to incur when they get sick without a Pre-Existing Conditions Clause to greatly help them financially and it is clearly showing.

The idea that despite anything he says or does, Cruz re-election could be in jeopardy.. imo is pure wishful thinking, with no connection to reality.

We have to face it, this country is in many parts dumb enough to vote in crooks against their very own best interest.

After 1.5 years now, i would assume that Trump would win election against HRC if it were held today by an actual landslide. Despite everything he's done so far, and how he damaged this country.

THIS is how bad this country has gone.

Ted Cruz doesn't even understand what Green Eggs and Ham is about.

Cruz is correct. There is no constitutional authority for the federal government to force a private business into entering contracts that lose money.

Cruz's whole position is based on the rather unusual premise that the only people who should have affordable health care are those who, by definition, do not need it.

Incorrect. Did you read the link? His position is based on the fact that the individual mandate was the mechanism that offset the losses of affordably insuring (subsidizing) those with pre-existing conditions. Now that the mandate has been essentially repealed, the things it was meant to fund should be as well.
