Ted Cruz Predicts Legal Landmines Ahead for Obamacare

One of Congress‘ staunchest critics of Obamacare released a report Monday that cheers on legal challenges to the overhaul and says the White House overstepped its authority by delaying aspects of the law.

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican who helped engineer a lengthy government funding stalemate earlier this year in a bid to block money for the new health care law, said many aspects of the Affordable Care Act are “constitutionally or statutorily suspect” and that the entire law should be repealed.

While a repeal is unlikely so long as Democrats control the Senate and White House, Mr. Cruz said President Obama deserves flak for taking unilateral steps to put off portions of the law, saying the president and fellow Democrats were responsible for this summer’s government shutdown.
