Satirist Borowitz on Ted Cruz’ latest plan to kill Obamacare

Is it time to consider blowing up the earth?

From the made-up-news department, satirist Andy Borowitz quotes Ted Cruz to the effect that the only way to really be sure to kill Obamacare is to blow up Planet Earth. Made up quote:

“Obamacare is like a parasite that needs a host to feed on. If you want to kill the parasite you kill the host, and in this case that means killing this planet. As long as there’s a planet Earth, the nightmare of Obamacare could always come screaming back to life.”
