At a well-received “Welcome Home” speech in Houston on Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz managed to find a silver lining in the problems with the Affordable Care Act exchange website.
“You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately,” Cruz joked, according to the Houston Chronicle. “They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website.”
Cruz was speaking to a tea party crowd filling the headquarters of the King Street Patriots in his hometown Monday night, and he said it was good to be back.
“I’ve spent the past month in Washington, D.C.,” Cruz said. “It is terrific to be back in America.”
Back in Texas for a series of speaking events, Cruz stuck to many of his familiar lines, including saying he doesn’t “work for the party bosses,” that Senate Republicans allowed a “lousy deal” and that he was in the fight against Obamacare for the long haul.
