Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for the 2016 Presidential race, but he (or someone on his team) never purchased TedCruz.com — the most obvious URL in the world, especially for someone running for President of the United States.
While this sort of thing happens a lot, it looks as though the new owner has no intention of selling it to the Senator. Why? Because if you click through the TedCruz.com you just see one simple message on a big black screen:
So if TedCruz.com supports President Obama and immigration reform, why not go with something more patriotic and noble. Say, for example, TedCruzForAmerica.com! Nope, that redirects to Healthcare.gov, which is the healthcare plan Cruz was against. The same healthcare plan Cruz and his family have now had to take on, since they were originally on his wife’s policy at Goldman Sachs, but she took an unpaid leave of absence in order to help her husband campaign for president.
“We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we’re in the process of transitioning over to do that,” Cruz told the Des Moines Register‘s Jennifer Jacobs. “It is written in the law that members will be on the exchanges without subsidies just like millions of Americans… I think the same rules should apply to all of us.”
So what URL is the Cruz campaign using now? TedCruz.org.
