Several people have argued... the last couple of days that Ted Cruz's going on Obamacare is not hypocritical. (Click here and here for starters.)

But I beg to differ -- still.

Cruz's family lost its insurance when his wife took a leave of absence from her job at Goldman Sachs. As a result, Cruz has to go on an exchange and find a new policy. So, in effect, he's making the argument for Obamacare: If you lose your insurance for whatever reason, you're still covered -- period. And, yet, at the same time, he's still hoping to "repeal every last word" of it.

That's hypocritical: to demonstrate the value of something while still arguing for its repeal.
