Is Ted Cruz a hypocrite for wanting to repeal obamacare and then turning around to sign up for it?

Ted Cruz, in his presidential bid, has stated that his first goal will be to repeal the Affordable Health care Act aka Obamacare. Funny that he is now in the federal exchange since his wife no longer carries coverage. What are your thoughts?

    Due to the Grassley Amendment, members of Congress must go through the exchange for insurance unless they are covered by a spouse's plan. Sen. Cruz supported this Republican bill.

    The democrats wrote it that way, not Sen. Cruz. To try to fault him for it is the height of hypocrisy and demagoguery.

    The law says he has to have healthcare insurance.

    It does not say he has to use Obamacare. He can seek out private insurance through something like Blue Cross Blue Shield or even get Cobra. Ted Cruz has the means to go private if he wanted to.
