During a CNN townhall debate on February 7, Republican Senator Ted Cruz got socialist Senator Bernie Sanders to admit that President Barack Obama was not so truthful about Barack Obama’s claims during the debate over the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) and what would happen to the cost of healthcare premiums under the scheme.
 
Cruz responded to a claim Sanders made, saying “Since apparently I’m now trying to kill the elderly, let me ask you a question, when you heard that her premiums had skyrocketed, that she can’t afford health insurance, you kind of said, well, premiums always go up.”
 
Going on, Cruz asked, “Let me ask you, why did President Obama look in the eyes of the American people and promise Laronda that her health insurance premiums would go down $2500 a year. Was he telling the truth when he said that and were you and the other Democrats telling the truth when you echoed his promise to the American people?”
 
Sanders responded, saying “As everybody knows, health care is pretty complicated. I think President Obama is an honest person, and I think based on his assessment, that’s what he believed.”
 
Cruz pressed the Vermont socialist, “Was it true?”
 
Sanders had to admit, “Turns out not to be true.”
