Cruz: Obama should apologize for ObamaCare during State of the Union

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Sunday called on President Obama to apologize during his State of the Union Address to the Americans who have lost their health insurance due to ObamaCare.

“For the State of the Union, one of the things President Obama really oughta do is look in the TV camera and say to the over 5 million Americans all across this country who've had their health insurance canceled because of ObamaCare, to look in the camera and say, ‘I’m sorry,’ ” Cruz said on CBS’s "Face the Nation."  

Republicans have seized on President Obama’s erroneous claim that Americans would be able to keep their current insurance under the healthcare reform law. They accuse Democrats of lying about the law and warn further problems are likely to develop for Americans, as ObamaCare’s implementation continues.

Cruz said that, in addition to apologizing, Obama should offer fixes for the law.

“But then, Bob, here's the real kicker. If you're really sorry, you don't just say you're sorry. You actually do something to fix the problem,” he added.
