Senator Cruz’ Dad speaks out
Citizen Link  - Bethany Monk - 10/4/2013

Texas Pastor Rafael Cruz wasn’t at all surprised when his son stood for more than 21 hours straight last month urging federal lawmakers to defund Obamacare. He’s a man of principle, and it’s his nature, the elder Cruz said.

Obamacare, signed into law in March 2010, requires larger companies to offer health insurance to those who work 30 hours or more. If not, they face steep fines. Most Americans oppose the law. Pastor Cruz calls it the “worst thing” the American government has done.

Though he faced criticism from mainstream media, many say Cruz’ son, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz from Texas, stood up for Americans across the country when he gave his “marathon speech” on the Senate floor.

Rafael Cruz, director of Purifying Fire Ministries, helped with his son’s Senate race last year, and he continues to deliver speeches across the country on religious freedom and pro-family issues. Last weekend, CitizenLink co-sponsored his speeches in Thornton and Colorado Springs, Colo. Pastor Cruz took some time to talk with CitizenLink.

  1. Kim,
    You and your ilk talk about the Affordable Care Act is if it were some abstract government program. Many of us admit it is imperfect, but I have seen no plans whatsoever from your side on how to fix our broken health care system, the millions without insurance, the millions more who can't get coverage due to pre-existing conditions (like my middle-class brother and his wife, through no fault of their own), and insurance companies dropping people when they cost too much. I will take your arguments seriously when you have serious answers to these problems. I also wish you would stop lying about death panels, government takeovers, and the like. Corporations were cutting back on health care benefits long before the ACA. Be part of the solution to these problems or get out of the way.

  2. Mr Hersh, Thank you for following the Northwoods Patriots Blogspot. We appreciate your views. However, we must correct your error. "Kim" does not post to the blogspot. Someone else does! So you effort to contact "Kim" through your comments are not that effective.

    Numerous posts have been made on the Northwoods Patriots Blogspot about options to ObamaCare. But first I'd like to remind you:

    Democrats have opposed all efforts at selling health care across state lines.

    Democrats have opposed tort reform.

    Democrats have opposed reducing waste - fraud - and abuse.

    Just those three quick issues alone would save billions of dollars.

  3. Selling insurance across state lines and tort reform will save little money. (I support tort reform, but not to save money.) I am also for reducing fraud and abuse, but we have probably run that well dry. But you have not addressed the moral issue that about 15% of people from the richest country on the planet do not have health insurance.
