RIP: Irony

This is beautiful. Guess who is to sign up on the exchanges:

Ted Cruz, one of the loudest critics of Obamacare, will soon be using it for health insurance coverage.

“We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we’re in the process of transitioning over to do that,” Cruz, a Republican candidate for president, told The Des Moines Register Tuesday.

But, Cruz added, he’d still like to see Obamacare repealed in its entirety.

“And I believe it will be. I believe in 2017 a new president, a Republican president will sign legislation repealing every word of it. There are a fair number of Republicans in Washington and elsewhere who have quietly and privatively given up on that fight and I have not,” he said.

Now there’s a little twist to this; some are saying that Cruz is trying to make a point about being forced to go on Obamacare, because he really doesn’t have to. I don’t know who he’s trying to convince because A) everyone is on this story for the unintentional laughs, and B) a Republican came up with the idea of putting members on the exchanges.
