We were surprised to learn by watching last night’s SNL Weekend Update that Senator Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a.k.a. the land of universal healthcare and Bret “The Hitman” Hart.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. So you want to defund “Obamacare” but might be entitled to free universal healthcare in Canada, as a potential dual Canadian-U.S. citizen? Isn’t that the same thing as having a subscription to Netflix and arguing that watching the first season of House Of Cards on Netflix will destroy the entire U.S. economy? Everyone knows the only thing on Netflix that can destroy the U.S. economy is a nation of kids watching the recommended episodes of the new 90210 instead of something more intelligent like Breaking Bad.
2. Have you asked Bret the Hitman Heart whether he supports universal healthcare? We don’t know the answer, but we suspect that the Hart Foundation star may support any healthy Heart Foundation.
3. Did you happen to mention your Canadian roots when filibustering? Since you can talk about whatever you want when you filibuster to prevent people from getting health care, we just wondered if you mentioned you were born in a country with health care for all. Or were you too busy making nonsensical Dr. Seuss rhymes? You do not like healthcare Sam I Am, You Do Not Like It Because You’re Can-a-dian?
