WATCH: Ted Cruz Argues With Family Of Disabled Man About His Promise To Eliminate Obamacare

If there’s one line you can count on Ted Cruz repeating in every single campaign speech he gives, it’s his promise that if he’s elected President (you know, when pigs start flying and hell reports a temperature of absolute zero) he will, on his first day in office, eliminate the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

Well, while campaigning in Indiana, Cruz got into a discussion which quickly escalated with the family of a disabled man named Scott who has been greatly helped by the ACA.

In the video below, part of the audio is obscured by crowd noise, but the caretaker for the disabled man can be heard telling Cruz:

“People like him would not be able to get health insurance at all.”

Cruz, in full platitude mode, responds:

“There’s no doubt that we need to provide care…”

The caretaker, who has not yet been identified, cuts Cruz off and says:

“But it was never done before. It was never done. Nobody did it.”

Again, Cruz begins speaking in generalities he cannot possibly defend with facts:

“I can tell you millions have lost their health care at the same time.”

The man fires back with this:

“Well, but it made a difference to some.”

But as we learned a long time ago, Ted Cruz could care less about anyone other than himself. He is a self-serving pile of human excrement who would sell his soul (if he had one) and the souls of his children in order to achieve the highest office in the country. Such a man would burn this nation to the ground for his own selfish goals of power. Yet another reason Ted Cruz may well be the most dangerous political figure in America.

Watch the confrontation for yourself:
