An Austin woman put Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas on the spot Tuesday evening, asking him to prove he is human with a DNA test.
YouTube user Tammy Talpas posted the video on the website Wednesday. The video shows a woman, who Talpas purports to be, confronting the senator about what appears to be his stances on repealing and replacing Obamacare.
“I’m a woman over 50 who, as of February 7th, has seven active pre-existing conditions. I’m not counting being female and a survivor of abuse. I purchase my individual policy on the Health Insurance Exchange. If you force me into a high-risk pool, you will either bankrupt me or kill me. I take your threats of medical aggression personally and seriously; and I can assure you, I’m not the only Texan who does,” the woman said to Cruz.
Woman in Austin last night apparently asked Cruz to "pledge to submit to a DNA test to prove that you're human."
Cruz: "Well, m'am, thank you for that, & 1 of the great things about our democratic system is we can treat each other w/ respect & civility."https://t.co/5kymMYYM1l
