Ted Cruz weighs in on SCOTUS and the future of health care reform

Today on "The Chris Salcedo Show", Chris Salcedo spoke to Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and implored the senator to "look into [his] crystal ball" for the future of the Trump administration and Republican majority congress.

"We are poised for this to be one of the most productive congresses in history," Cruz said.

The appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was "a major victory for President Trump, a major victory for conservatives, and a major victory for the American people." This election is considered by some to be a referendum on the direction of the Supreme Court. Cruz called Gorsuch "a principled originalist" who will revere the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Chris and Cruz then speculated as to potential vacant seats on the highest court in the land. Another vacancy during the Trump administration may cause panic on the Left, and the President must hold his ground against whatever they throw at him to dissuade a conservative appointment. Democrats will "crawl over broken glass," Cruz mused.

They also touched on the special election in Kansas' 4th Congressional district in which Republican Ron Estes eked out a victory over Democrat James Thompson, causing Chris to fear that Republicans are losing steam following last November's contentious presidential election.

Not all Republicans are on board with all issues, in fact. The funding of the border wall, for example, is being resisted by some, and the house bill that was introduced to replace Obamacare did not reduce premiums, which the senator believes to be a marker of success for any replacement plan.

Cruz' solution is to roll up his sleeves and bring Republicans together on issues important to conservatives: repeal Obamacare, establish a flat tax, abolish the Internal Revenue Service.
