Texas Senator Ted Cruz told a crowd in Iowa Saturday that grassroots conservatives need to band together if they want a shot at dismantling the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s massive health care law.
“I seem to recall two weeks ago when every newspaper, every political TV station was saying that it is impossible for the president to delay any part of Obamacare. You guys are nuts,” the Republican Senator told an audience at a Defenders of Freedom event in Le Mars, Iowa.
“This week, the president and the Democrats are saying ‘holy cow, this thing is really not working,’” he added.
Cruz said he’s trying to build a grassroots “army” to help him defeat and eventually uproot the health care law, adding that he has even set up a website, “MakeDCListen.org,” for people to discuss how Obamacare is hurting them.
“Telling people’s stories about how Obamacare is hurting real people, right now. That’s how we’re going to do this,” he said, referring to continued attempts to chip away at the law.
