Please fire me. Today I brought in a ham sandwich (I work in a hospital as a receptionist) and a man came up to me saying (exact quote) “Hey lady, could you not eat that disgusting peace of cr#p in here, my kid doesn’t like pork.” My sudden response was “If your kid doesn’t like it then he shouldn’t look then, should he?” After that the guy waited outside the hospital and slapped me when I came out after my shift.

It's the last days to sign up for health insurance!

Trying to navigate the health insurance world to find affordable health care without Obamacare:

Now let’s go get covered!

Ted Cruz is going on Obamacare.

The newly announced Republican presidential candidate told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday that he will sign up for health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act — a law he has been on a crusade to kill.

"We’ll be getting new health insurance and we’ll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we’ll be on the federal exchange with millions of others on the federal exchange," Cruz said.

Cruz’s admission comes one day after CNN first reported that the senator would no longer have access to health benefits through his wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs. Heidi Cruz, a managing director at the firm’s Houston office, has gone on unpaid leave for the duration of the senator’s presidential campaign and will not have access to the company’s benefits during that time.

Cruz’s campaign appeared caught by surprise Monday by questions about the senator’s health care. Asked how Cruz’s family would be covered after his wife lost her Goldman Sachs benefits, Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler repeatedly answered that he didn’t know.

It’s a deeply ironic development for the Texas conservative firebrand, who vaulted to fame during his few years in the Senate in large part by denouncing President Barack Obama’s landmark health care law.

Cruz denied that there was anything ironic about the move, saying he was simply following the law.

"I believe we should follow the text of every law, even (a) law I disagree with," Cruz told CNN.
