Sen. Ted Cruz told Newsmax TV on Thursday that Republicans can pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, but that "we've got to do it right."
"Results matter," the Texas Republican told "The Joe Pags Show" in an interview. "It's not just passing a bill whose title is Obamacare repeal.
"We actually go to do something that fixes the problem.
"It's that we honor our promise that we've made to the voters," Cruz continued. "For seven years, Republicans have said, 'If you elect us, we'll do this, we'll repeal Obamacare.'
"We've got to keep our word."
In addition, the first-term senator said, "we've got to lower premiums."
