You know the tried and true, well heeded bit of advice for lawyers: Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to? Well, Ted Cruz apparently slept through that discussion in law school, because he tried that with a question about the Affordable Care Act on Facebook, and failed miserably. He also proved the point that no made up "horror story" by his ilk can compare to reality for those who lived with the true health care horror stories before "Obamacare" became a law.
Here is Ted Cruz on Facebook, believing what he and those living in a bubble with him are telling people about ACA, that it's just as bad as they say it is:
Not only was the overwhelming response a "Yes!" but those responses came from people who were so much better off with ACA than before that they couldn't wait to give him all the details on why. People were happy to share personal stories and provide examples of how well the law is already working, how much they were saving, and how easy it was to debunk all the "horror stories" that Cruz, the GOP, Conservatives, and FOX have been harping about for as long as the law has existed. (Read the responses to his question from March 24 for yourself here before they disappear.)
By asking this question, the King Of Fake Filibusters actually may have helped to up enrollment numbers for anyone who may have been on the fence and read some of these stories. It's also yet another reminder that he and the GOP were willing to destroy the nation's economy and shut down the government just to keep those who are better off with ACA than they were before from, well, being better off.
So thank you Sen. Cruz, for helping more people see how good "Obamacare" really is. Well done!
Next time, instead of Green Eggs And Ham, maybe Cruz can read The Boy Who Cried Wolf to an empty room.
