The Post said Cruz handled each interruption calmly, pointing out that Obamacare is causing many to lose their jobs and their health care.

“You have health care, we should too!” protesters chanted.

“Thank you for sharing your views. You know, part of the First Amendment is about respecting others,” Cruz said in response. “Number one, I agree with them. They should have health care and Obamacare is causing more and more people struggling to climb the economic ladder to lose their health care.”

But Cruz wasn’t finished, telling the crowd that Obama’s campaign arm is trying to gin up support for Obamacare by paying people to pretend the grassroots are on his side.  Naturally, Obama has to pay people to go harass Republicans, because that’s part of his schtick.

“Every time they’ve come to protest in Texas, they’ve sent a small group of people, and ya’ll have outnumbered them two, and three, and four to one,” he said.
