Ted Cruz Warns GOP Over 2018 Election

Sen Ted Cruz, R-Texas, lashed out at Senate Republicans on Friday for their inaction in healthcare reform legislation, and said it could result in real problems for the GOP in the mid-term elections.

Fox News co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Cruz on Friday if senators are worried about how the current Obamacare repeal and replace process could hurt them next year if they do not rescind the law.

“If they’re not, they should be,” Cruz said on Fox News when asked if Republicans should be worried about the 2018 elections. “You’re exactly right, voters should hold us accountable.”

“I’ve said many times if we fail to get this done, I think collectively Republicans will look like fools,” he added. “You can’t have your central promise for seven years be we’ll repeal Obamacare, and then you show up and vote not even to take up the bill to consider repealing Obamacare.”
