Ted Cruz: ‘Bunch’ of Republicans are ‘Scared’ to Vote for Clean Repeal of Obamacare [VIDEO]

Texas Senator Ted Cruz told FOX News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night that there are a “bunch” of Republicans who are “scared” to vote for more of a clean repeal of Obamacare like the bill the Senate voted for in 2015, knowing that Obama would veto it.

“I would vote for a complete repeal, a one-sentence ‘Obamacare is repealed, period, the end,'” Senator Cruz told Hannity. “I’d vote for it happily.”

“I’d be happy,” Hannity interjected.

“Unfortunately, they’re a bunch of Republicans who are scared to vote for that,” Cruz said. “They won’t vote for that.”

Cruz noted that every Republican campaigned the past eight years on repealing Obamacare. He believes they can get to “yes” by focusing on freedom and lowering premiums.

“We’re either gonna look voters in the eye and keep our word or we’re gonna look the voters in the eye and break our word,” Cruz said. “I hope it’s not the latter.”
