Stephen Colbert Turns Ted Cruz’s Old Words About Health Care Against Him
Colbert noted that in the lead-up to the November midterms Republicans, including Cruz, were now vowing to protect people with pre-existing conditions — even though they and Donald Trump spent “most of his presidency trying to repeal Obamacare.”
“He (Trump) would have gotten rid of everything, including pre-existing conditions, that he just swore he would save,” said Colbert.
The late-night comedian then aired footage of Cruz’s marathon 21-hour filibuster speech from 2013, in which he promised “to speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand” to prove his point.
