Republican Ted Cruz.

A $20,000 policy on his Wife's insurance through Goldman Sachs.

And how much are the Taxpayers subsidizing him?


"Instead of getting compensation in cash and then shopping for insurance, they're getting an $8,500 federal subsidy," Kleinbard said. "If Goldman said, 'Here's cash, go buy your own policy,' that would cost them $8,500 in federal taxes. By structuring it this way, Goldman has saved them $8,500."

How Much Does Ted Cruz's Goldman Sachs Health Care Plan Cost Taxpayers?

What a Gentleman!!!!

How are others in his home state of Texas faring?

"(I)n the state of Texas, especially with Republicans, with Rick Perry refusing to accept the hundred billion dollars in expanded Medicaid, there's 40,000 veterans in the state of Texas that are not going to receive health care as a result of that decision," Hinojosa said in a Sept. 25, 2013, interview on the YNN cable news channel’s "Capital Tonight" show.

More than 40,000 vets’ income would qualify for Medicaid if Texas adopted Obamacare expansion

Well Ted, at least you don't have to worry about you and yours getting sick.

To use a phrase I've learned over the past few years in the lone star state...

"Bless Your Heart"

So I guess Cruz's wife didn't get to keep her policy either.

Like everyone else, if she comes down with a long term illness she can no longer be thrown off.

So, no.

Not to mention the Cruz hatchlings can stay on Momma Cruz's plan until they are 26.

The old plan didn't cover that. The one she has starting January 1st does.

It's doubtful she is losing sleep over it though. But I'm sure she appreciates your concern.

At least he gave $22,000 to charity (in 2010)

From your source his income in 2009 was...

$1.5 million in 2009.

That makes $22,000 less than 2% of his income. A Tax write off.

Another $22,000 that he has cost the Taxpayer!

Typical Rabid Right philanthropist.

Average income in Texas 2009 ...$36,484.
Per Capita Personal Income by State

So "Good ol Boy" Ted got a Tax break of roughly three quarters the average income for his state.

Oh, thats right, he is the only senator doing something of this nature, please, ALL upper level politicans get these benefits. There are many many stories on the rooted senators( lifelong politicians) the longer you are there, the more special programs you will get, and then there is the insider trading, lobbyists cash, add ons to bills (riders) that pad the big pockets, corruption at its best.... Of all of the senators, Ted is not even close to the worst! He was elected to do something and he gave it his all, most would not care unless it fattened their portfolio......
