Ted Cruz Slams ‘Lousy Deal,’ Pledges Obamacare Fight Is Far From Over on Hannity

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, the conservative tag-team that led the fight on Obamacare from the beginning, joined Sean Hannity Wednesday night before the House voted to officially end the government shutdown, both of them slamming the compromise deal and promising to continue fighting the health care law. Cruz called it a “lousy deal” and the latest example of the “Washington establishment selling the people down the river.”

Cruz told Hannity, “If Senate Repulbicans had united and supported House Republicans, the American people, we would have had a very different outcome.”

Both of them continued to tear apart Obamacare, saying they are still committed to that fight even with this setback. Hannity brought up the Republican attacks on the two of them, with Cruz continuing to slam his Senate GOP colleagues while refusing to engage in the same “bickering” as them.

Cruz touted the overwhelming response from the American people to their fight against the health care law, which was only damaged this thoroughly because, as Lee put it, a lot of Republicans didn’t want them to succeed.
