Tailgunner Ted's Health Insurance Lie

Speaking to a New Hampshire crowd Thursday, smarmy wingnut Sen. "Tailgunner Ted" Cruz (R-Canada) claimed that "Obamacare" had left him and his family without health insurance. Today, his spokesperson admitted that Tailgunner Ted was lying through his teeth mistaken, and that his coverage was never dropped.  Also, in a case of making his family pay for his desire to make a (false) political point,  while Tailgunner Ted is eligible (as a Federal employee under the Federal Employees Health Benefit program) to have roughly 75% of his health care costs subsidized by the Government, he chose not to participate.  So he's a liar, and a craven demagogue who has no shame about using his family as political props.

But we already knew that, didn't we?
