It is no surprise to anyone anywhere that CNN has recently been exposed a few times for reporting dodgy, even sometimes made up fake news.
Ted Cruz, Senator, just called out CNN on their coverage of the Health Care bill that is currently being put through over their HORRIFIC double standard. The funniest thing is that Cruz is definitely not the first person to have called them out over the past couple of days.
Several top Republicans, including the President, Donald Trump, himself have called CNN out on their terrible reporting.
When the Senator from Texas saw that CNN had tweeted out with reference to his health care amendment as the “so-called Consumer Freedom amendment,” he immediatly responded saying this:

This is just another example of CNN simply making up news to fit their far left narrative and trying to damage the reputation of the Trump administration and America itself. Are these people even on Americas side?
According to The Blaze, on Thursday, Cruz said:
“As long as his amendment is included in the legislation, he will support the latest Senate bill, to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
It was also reported on a few different news sites that Republicans may not even wait for the assessment of the plan from the Congressional Budget Office and simply move straight ahead with Ted Cruz’s plan.
Senator John Thune said on the sensitive subject:
“I think we’ll get other feedback from HHS, [the White House Office of Management and Budget] and others who also have models that can take into consideration.”
It was discovered that using the House bill to repeal and replace the FAILED Obamacare initiative could leave up to 23 million Americans without insurance for over a decade. A similar analysis was also run that put the number much lower at just 13 million.
It seems that using the Trump administration to score the bill would provide a more favorable outcome in the long term.
All of this drama started when Mitch McConnel decided to delay for over two weeks the Senate’s August recess so that lawmakers would have more time to pass the health care legislation.
