Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife confirmed that her husband, the most vocal, bombastic, egocentric opponent of Obamacare, has a pricey health plan through investment bank Goldman Sachs.
Heidi Cruz said, “Ted is on my health care plan.” She has worked in the firm’s management division for eight years. Democrats have prodded Cruz into acknowledging what heath care plan he enjoys, to which the Texas Senator deflected onto another subject.
But now we know.
The New York Times reports:
“I have to say, honestly, I’m not involved with any of those issues at our firm,” Mrs. Cruz said. And if her husband was evasive about where he got his health coverage, Mrs. Cruz was blunt.
“Ted is on my health care plan,” said Mrs. Cruz, who has worked in Goldman’s investment management division for eight years.
The Huffington Post reports, “Cruz’s plan through Goldman appeared to be an uncomfortable fact for the conservative senator as he lambasted the health care reform law and helped drive what would become a two-week government shutdown. In an exchange during Cruz’s 20-hour anti-Obamacare marathon on the Senate floor in September, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) tried unsuccessfully to get Cruz to admit where he gets his own coverage.”
Durbin asked, “Will the senator from Texas for the record tell us now — and those who watched this debate — whether he is protected and his family’s protected?”
Cruz changed the subject.
I do not like Obamacare, said Tea Party Ted, No fan I am of health care for all. Destroy that egg! Today! Today I say! Without delay! Defund that health care plan for the little folks, it’s only for those insured by Banksta folks.
