Last night, during the Republican debate, Ted Cruz swallowed both his feet whole..and on purpose. Cruz got caught in a huge lie again that, while it has been deemed untrue, is still touted by Republicans as an anti-Obamacare mantra. OBAMACARE IS A JOB KILLER. It’s almost as if facts don’t matter anymore to conservatives; their once proud nature has turned into complete lunacy.

Cruz arrogantly stated this load of horsesh*t onto the debate crowd last night:

‘First of all, we have seen now in six years of Obamacare that it has been a disaster. It is the biggest job-killer in this country. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, have been forced into part-time work, have lost their health insurance, have lost their doctors, have seen their premiums skyrocket.’

Republicans have literally been doing this crap since before the Affordable Care Act was even signed, and it is seriously getting old. Politifact had this to say about Cruz’s remarks:

‘Virtually from the moment the Affordable Care Act was first debated, its critics have warned that it would wreck the economy. Those predictions, we found at least five times, werebasedonfaultyevidence. Now Cruz is claiming that the critics were right, and it all has come to pass. Only that’s not true, either. At least in any way that the national data picks up.’

The Bureau of Statistics made this chart to illustrate exactly how full of crap Ted really is:

Economist Gary Burtless from the Brookings Institution said this:

‘In the face of this evidence, critics of the Affordable Care Act keep telling us their predictions of the ‘job killing’ impacts of Obamacare have been borne out by experience. So far as I can see, this is flatly untrue.’
