Ted Cruz spoke with reporters a very few minutes ago about his issues with the Senate Healthcare bill and what he needs to see from the bill before he can vote on it:
You should watch the entire clip, but Cruz’s biggest issue is that this bill doesn’t do enough to make insurance premiums go down. He makes the case that this result wouldn’t just bad for the American people, but if Republicans don’t fix the problem, it will be very bad for them too.
In other words he’s trying to appeal to what Senators love so much, their power, in order to get them to fix this bill.
Cruz emphasized that he knows this is only a draft and that significant changes will be made, but also that he really believes that they can the bill to a point where everyone can vote ‘yes’.
So I guess we’ll see. Watch the clip for much more.
