Ted Cruz is fighting the good fight and has some news that all Trump supporters need to hear right now. We all know that midterm elections are fraught with peril for the incumbent party.
For a few reasons. The energy used to elect a candidate, in this case Trump, needs to be high so there is a natural let down after your guy wins.
Remember Obama’s shellacking? He still does because it crippled his presidency.
Also, America tends to like divided Government. We really don’t trust anyone in Washington, even outsiders like Trump have to earn our trust- we just don’t give it.
And look what happened when we gave Paul Ryan and the GOP the keys to the kingdom? The one thing Trump said they could not touch as they went about repealing Obamacare was the pre-existing condition clause.
America, blue and red America really likes that clause because without it we know we are one sickness away from a living hell. Of denied coverage and of abject poverty to pay for coverage if we can afford it.
What did Paul Ryan try to do first thing? Get rid of the pre-existing clause.
No, we don’t trust Paul Ryan or Chuck Schumer and while Trump is a huge improvement over those clowns, America is not stupid and we know what Paul Ryan tried to do.
We like divided government and if the GOP isn’t careful (and keeps ignoring Trump’s agenda) as Ted Cruz says, it won’t end well.
From the Hill:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday he is “absolutely” concerned about the prospect of high Democratic turnout in Texas for the midterm elections in November.
“The extreme left is energized and angry, and it makes it all the important for conservatives to show up in November,” Cruz told CNN’s Manu Raju.
Cruz, who is up for reelection this year, said in a separate interview on Monday with talk show host Hugh Hewitt that the Texas could potentially turn blue in November if conservatives stay home on Election Day.
“We could end up with a Speaker Pelosi and a [Senate] Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. In Texas, if conservatives stay home, if we rest on our laurels, we could see Texas turn blue,” the senator said.
“We could see every statewide office in the state becoming a Democrat. Now that’s long been a Democrat pipe dream. I don’t believe it’s going to happen. But the best way to make sure it doesn’t happen is for conservatives to show up,” he said.
