Cruz: GOP a ‘laughingstock’ if ObamaCare repeal fails

The Hill by Mark Hensch --
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says "failure is not an option" as Republicans seek to repeal and replace ObamaCare, claiming the party would become "a laughingstock" if it cannot pass healthcare reform with control of both the White House and Congress.

“The time for talk is over,” Cruz told conservative activists during a Wednesday rally in Washington, D.C., as first reported by the Washington Examiner. "Now is the time for action.
“Failure is not an option. If Republicans take this opportunity and blow it, we will rightly be considered a laughingstock.”
Cruz said Republicans had campaigned too long on striking the 2010 healthcare act just to fail now.
“For six years, Republicans have campaigned over and over and over again, saying, ‘If only you’d give us the House, we’ll repeal ObamaCare,’ ” he said. " 'If you only give us the Senate, we’ll repeal ObamaCare. If only you give us the White House, we’ll repeal ObamaCare.’

JS: Sorry Ted, except for a handful in the GOP the party already is laughable.
