Ted Cruz is an example of a regressive politician that tends to cast philosophy over practicality. Ideally, it might make sense to let markets dictate supply for demand of health services, but in reality, there is no safe way to do that. Cruz skirts the fact that people with influence acting in self-interest can significantly damage the whole. That is why we have laws and regulations like Obamacare. Actually, he knows that since he uses the PPACA, so his opposition is blatantly hypocritical.
