The contradictions of Ted Cruz and his cohorts

I don’t know why the GOP and conservatives are so dead set against people without health coverage finally having a way to acquire and afford it.

But I’d like to take time here to mention an especially contradictory argument being made by certain Tea Partyites.

There’s are two arguments which Senator Ted Cruz (R. Texas) repeats in interviews which are so self-contradictory I don’t know why the media don’t constantly push back on it. It’s logical nonsense. In the same breath he says:

1. “Obamacare is a huge job killer” because it requires companies with more than 50 full-time employees to provide health coverage so they are reducing hours and not hiring. (Statistically that’s in dispute of course, but that’s one point he’s making.)

Then he says this:

2. Instead of Obamacare, his solution for people not having health insurance is for them to go out and get jobs and get insurance through their work place.

If he and his fellow travelers can’t see the glaring contradictions in those two positions they are truly ready for the trash heap of history.
