Sen. Ted Cruz is making good on a campaign promise.  Today, he introduced a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

Cruz admits, however, the Obama adminsitration’s health care law will likely remain on the books.

In an email statement, he said:

“Unfortunately, this bill will not pass in the current Congress, but I will continue working hard until we have the votes to repeal Obamacare in its entirety.  Obamacare was passed over the strong opposition of the American people, and it has already driven up the cost of health insurance and caused employers to drop their coverage.”

This is the first bill Sen. Cruz has filed since taking office in January.  It has 32 co-sponsors, including fellow Texan, Sen. John Cornyn.
