Sen. Cruz: Obama Should Apologize for Health Law


Most Americans still have a negative view of Obamacare, according to a new Associated Press-GFK poll.

The survey shows just 27 percent of Americans say they back the law, while 42 percent oppose it. About 30 percent are neutral. 

In fact, 66 percent say things still aren't going well, down from 76 percent last month.

An overwhelming 71 percent have encountered problems when trying to sign up on the Obamacare website. Only 40 percent reported having success with the site.

"Obamacare is a disaster," Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told CBS's "Face the Nation."

Cruz said the problems with Obamacare should be a key focus of the president's address to the nation Tuesday night.

"For the State of the Union, one of the things President Obama really ought to do is look in the TV camera, say to the over 5 million Americans all across this country who have had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare, to look in the camera say, 'I'm sorry. I told you if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it. I told you if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor and that wasn't true. I'm sorry,'" he said.

Cruz said if President Barack Obama really is sorry, then he should do something to fix the problems with Obamacare that have hurt millions of Americans.
