Cruz objects to ‘these mandates’ for birth control, Obamacare

Ted Cruz shied away from taking away Obamacare’s mandate for insurers to cover all of birth control.

“It is going to be a choice for each patient to make,” the Republican Texas senator said during a CNN debate Tuesday on the future of Obamacare.

He added, “Obamacare is all about these mandates.”

Cruz then referenced a quote from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

“The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of people’s money,” he said.

Cruz’s opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, took umbrage with the response.

“If you repeal the Affordable Care Act we are going to provide $346 billion in tax breaks to the top 2 percent,” he said.
