    There is a difference between healthcare and providing flat screen televisions.

    Medicare (Cruz isn't elligble)

    State or Federal Exchange (not really any different than doing the DC Exchange as it comes to the notion of "enrolling in Obamacare" or not)

    State Government Employee Health Care Plan (Cruz isn't eligible as his spouse isn't part of a state government to piggy back off of)

    Spouses private insurance (What Ted was on, but his wife no longer can get it)

    So thanks for the link that doesn't actually answer my question. So I'll ask again, care to specify an option that meets those criteria I listed?

    Much as you'd like to think so, there really isn't. Nor is there any difference between healthcare and food, shelter, clothing, boats, fishing gear, etc.

Basically you got Nixon and LBJ, but LBJ only because he was Kennedy's VP (another guy most people liked personally).
    That is because Bill Clinton is a sociopath that can charm people easily. Behind the curtain he is a complete and utter asshole that doesn't care for anyone or stand for anything besides himself. Obama is a narcissistic asshole that needs to surround himself with people that are inferior to him to make himself feel better. Obama doesn't care about anyone and while some people like him I don't imagine many people care for him at all.

    There is! It's simple ethics and morality, most people with a moral compass of any sort will see that.

    Oh really? Private insurance isn't regulated in various ways and mandated to follow/meet certain standards by the ACA? This is your stance?

    Could say the same for any president, it's just a claim based on hatred.

    Just going by his record Nixon was actually a pretty good president. Of course Watergate is all he's remembered for, and rightly so.
