Obama’s hardship exemption vindicates Sen. Ted Cruz by doing away with individual mandate.


The corrupt media, the conservative intellenginsia, and the GOP establishment haven’t come around to saying this but President Obama’s new “hardship” exemption is exactly what Sen. Ted Cruz wanted during the government shutdown back in October.

 

cruzCruz wanted Obama to delay the individual mandate that forces all Americans to buy health insurance.He knew millions would lose their coverage despite assurance from Obama that they could keep the insurance they liked.

 

Six months later that’s exactly what happened and Obama offered up a few days ago a hardship exemption, which applies to virtually anyone, accomplishes what Cruz wanted in the first place.

 

It’s called leadership and Cruz had the guts to demonstrate it against all odds and even the slings and arrows by lightweights like Peter King (R-NY) and the rest of the cowardly GOP establishment.
