BREAKING: Ted Cruz Takes on White House Critics of the House Freedom Caucus

Speaking in Texas tonight, Senator Ted Cruz came out swinging for the House Freedom Caucus, noting that the critics of the conservatives who are in the White House are “profoundly damaging our prospects of success.” He also noted, “If we screw all this up, you better believe the American people could elect President Warren.”

Cruz has unabashedly been defending conservatives for their refusal to preserve Obamacare under the Republican health care plan. I am told he has relayed to those close to the President that the conservatives and, in particular, the House Freedom Caucus members, are the good guys in this fight intent on making the GOP keep its promises.

The fact is, President Trump got terrible advice on the Obamacare repeal and needs to work with the House Freedom Caucus on a real repeal effort.
