SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): Now, I want to commend the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives has taken a bold stance listening to the American people, but unfortunately, the United States Senate has refused to do likewise. The United States Senate has stayed with the traditional approach of the Washington establishment of maintaining the status quo and doing nothing to respond to the suffering that Obamacare is causing millions of Americans.
This is unfortunate, but nobody should be surprised that the Washington establishment is pushing back. Nobody should be surprised at the resistance to change. Let me say, the American people in the last few months have risen up in overwhelming numbers. We have seen millions of Americans all over this country working to change Washington. That has been incredible progress and this fight, this debate, will continue until collectively, the American people can make D.C. listen, can get real relief for all the people who were hurt because of Obamacare.
