Hi, I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.
Last week, we marked the one-year anniversary of my winning the Texas Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
That victory was made possible because thousands upon thousands of grassroots activists across the state saw that the country was in trouble and stepped forward to help fix it.
Today I work for 26 million Texans, and your support is why I'm serving in office helping lead the fight to protect the Second Amendment, to secure the border, and to unshackle the free market economy.
Now we need to activate another grassroots army -- this time on a national scale.
In September, Congress will have the opportunity to defund Obamacare -- the disastrous health care law, which is killing jobs and hurting the health care system.
The only way we can win this debate is if the American people rise up and demand it. Please join us and let your representatives know where you stand.
I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.
This call to action is a continuation of Senator Cruz's efforts to mobilize the grassroots to support the campaign to defund ObamaCare.
Senator Cruz made a similar appeal during his speech at the RedState Gathering in New Orleans last week. He urged people to go to the Don't Fund It.com website and sign the petition to tell Congress not to fund ObamaCare. Cruz also wants hundreds of thousands of Americans to call their Senators and members of the House and tell them to "stop saying you oppose ObamaCare and actually stand up and defund it":
"I can’t win this fight. There is no elected politician in Washington who can win this fight. The only people who can win this fight are you. The only people who can win this fight are the American people rising up in overwhelming numbers and saying, 'We want our country back.'"
Senator Cruz has also posted a video on YouTube describing how ObamaCare can be defunded, which you can watch here.
