Ted Cruz sees legal landmines ahead for Obamacare

One of Congress‘ staunchest critics of Obamacare released a report Monday that cheers on legal challenges to the overhaul and says the White House overstepped its authority by delaying aspects of the law.

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican who helped engineer a lengthy government funding stalemate earlier this year in a bid to block money for the new health care law, said many aspects of the Affordable Care Act are “constitutionally or statutorily suspect” and that the entire law should be repealed.

While a repeal is unlikely so long as Democrats control the Senate and White House, Mr. Cruz said President Obama deserves flak for taking unilateral steps to put off portions of the law, saying the president and fellow Democrats were responsible for this summer’s government shutdown.

“Democrats forced a government shutdown instead of agreeing to a congressional delay of Obamacare, but now the Obama administration is unilaterally delaying it,” he wrote in his report. “This undermines the rule of law.”

The White House has argued they are open to improving Mr. Obama’s signature law and that they’re being flexible by putting off certain portions.

    Ted is correct: no person in his or her right mind would get involved with Obamamama NON CARE/Medicaid.
    I was in Dallas/Plano 11->14 Nov for my personal physician visits.
    My Internist of 33 years and many of his partners are retiring 31 Dec/1 Jan, and all other former colleagues with whom I spoke will not see Obamamama/Medicaid patients. Most are going Concierge for less.
    Yes, I know, I’m an insider, but please don’t get involved with the IDIOTS in DC.
    You will certainly regret it!!
