Sen. Ted Cruz makes a fool of himself on Twitter by equating Obamacare and Net Neutrality. Are you surprised?
Ted Cruz Tweets: 'Net Neutrality' Is Obamacare For The Internet
November 10, 2014

I really do hope Senator Ted Cruz runs for president and wins the Republican nomination because that would be an epic blast. Just think of all the Twitter fun we could have along with those crazy debates. Here's a little taste just to wet your whistle.

Today President Obama called for “the strongest possible rules to protect” the open internet on Monday.

“An open internet is essential to the American economy, and increasingly to our very way of life. By lowering the cost of launching a new idea, igniting new political movements, and bringing communities closer together, it has been one of the most significant democratizing influences the world has ever known,” Obama said.

As usual, the lead hater of America's working class, Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted out this as a response to a call for a free Internet highway.

"Net Neutrality" is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.

What a tralk. Since its inception, the Internet has been operating at lightning speed without help from the corporate sector, who would charge people to surf the web. And it's grown as big as it has because of that fact. I wonder how much Ted (himself) has even used a computer let alone the Internet these past ten years.

And by the way, healthcare in America had been dreadful unless you had the resources to afford a really good plan which 99%ers do not and Obamacare is changing all that, Mr. Cruz.

(I'll be using Farscape cuss words more often now because I like the show and I like them.)
