Ted Cruz met with President-elect Trump late Tuesday afternoon, hours after the incoming Republican president convened a meeting of his top transition staffers to review key appointments he will need to make before his inauguration in mid-January.


"Sen. Cruz is pleased to have the opportunity to meet with President-elect Trump in New York today," Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in a statement.


The Texas senator is not involved in Trump's transition operation, though Frazier said he is eager to assist the next administration with its goals of repealing Obamacare and pursuing "cost-effective, patient-centered health care reform," appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court, enforcing immigration laws and passing legislation "that will create more good-paying jobs for the American people."


"On behalf of the 27 million Texans he represents, the senator looks forward to assisting the Trump administration in achieving these objectives," she said.

Washington Examiner on THIS post, is surely trying to bend OUR mines to the left!!

politics requires a very thick skin and a lot of humility

And so does Marriage....  Work....  Life in general.  

Politicians SHOULD have humility, but for many years now...we haven't seen much of that.

Image result for politicians should be humble

POLITICIANS have forgot they are elected to represent the American People's WILL....!! NOT pet projects or to LINE their own pockets....!!

 

Every liar has followers, yep, that's politics.

Let's see, Trump accused Ted's father of being part of the Kenney assassination plot (lie), accused Ted of having affairs (lie), mocked Cruz's history of supporting our Constituiton, etc.  I still can't get anyone to tell me what Cruz lied about. 

Ted Cruz Lies SIX Times in Under Four Minutes!

https://youtu.be/zwIHJhtTSLg

cruz lies about everything to get his way, do your own research! ...may be the most "gifted" liar ever to run for president!

lol And how many times has Trump lied in one sentence?  

That video isn't even worth watching.  I looked at the first part of it, and Cruz didn't lie, but whomever put the video together did.  In the interview that they showed with Trump...the first one after the play of Cruz, if they had put the rest of the interview there, Trump said that o'care needs to be replaced and when specifically asked if it should be with a single payer health care plan, Trump said "Yes".  

At the end of the clip, he says that you'll be able to go out and buy your health plan.  How can you do that with SINGLE PAYER healthcare?  You can't.  So, who's lying?? 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPJfKdp3bDs#t=45

Cruz hasn't lied.  Your video lied.  Trump has lied and slandered and sued his way to where he is.  If you can't be honest with anything else, at least be honest with yourself. 

Tad, under D. Trump the gov't will cover health only for "welfare" reasons, more jobs less "welfare", get it?! ...we are not talking about the same welfare as the welfare enumerated in The Declaration of Independence! ...did you even comprehend the video you yourself referenced?!

Can't teach an old dog new tricks ...Again, do your own research!

Trump didn't accuse him of being part of a plot to assassinate Kennedy.  He did say he was acquainted with his father, and there are photos that indicate that.  Heidi Cruz accused Fiorna of having an affair with her husband.  And several have already explained how he has NOT supported our Constitution.  

BTW you need to follow the rules of this site, one of those is NO TROLLING:

2. No Trolls

Can you tell US who was in the Photography with Oswald In New Orleans?

From what I've read It was Ted Cruz's dad!!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
