Sen. Ted CruzTed CruzPaul: Pence should oversee Senate ObamaCare repeal votes Senators introduce new Iran sanctions With no emerging leaders, no clear message, Democrats flounder MORE (R-Texas) called for the repeal of “every blessed word of ObamaCare” in a fiery speech to a crowd of conservatives in Texas on Friday.
"Today liberty is under assault like never before," Cruz told the crowd, according to the Houston chronicle. "And again today Texans will stand up and lead the fight for freedom."
Cruz spoke prior to another presidential prospect, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Although the two would likely be fierce rivals if they ran, Cruz said he was part of a long line of Texans that have “always led the fight for freedom,” including Gov. Rick Perry (R).
He also called for an audit of the Federal Reserve, the abolition of the Internal Revenue Service and declared a need to defend “all of the Bill of Rights,” an apparent reference to the debate over gun control.
"There's a whole lot of mischief going on in Washington right now," he said.
