CNS News: Cruz: Dems Want to Run Health Care, But Can’t Count Who Stands Under a Sign

News|2.4.20

The Democrats’ failure to determine who won the Iowa Caucus by Tuesday morning due to a technical issue does not bode well for the Democrats’ ability to provide health care for the nation, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Tuesday.

“Dems right now can’t even stand in a gymnasium and count how many people move under each sign. These are the people who want to be put in charge of our healthcare & everything else in our lives? No thank you,” Cruz tweeted.

As CNSNews.com reported, the Iowa Democrat Party said they found “inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results.”

“In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report. This is simply a reporting issue. The app did not go down, and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound, and will simply take time to further report the results,” Communications Director Mandy McClure said in a statement.

In an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Cruz referenced his tweet and added that the socialist candidates who want to run everyone’s lives need to figure out how to count votes first.

“Democratic operatives in Iowa can’t get their act together. I did just tweet a few minutes ago, interesting, Dems right now, they can’t stand in the gymnasium and count who stands under which sign and they are the ones who want to be put in charge of our health care and everything else in our life,” he said.

“I mean, these are the socialist candidates who say we know best, trust us to run your life, well guys, how about figure out how to count your votes first,” Cruz said.
