Heidi Cruz is taking unpaid leave from her job at Goldman Sachs while her husband pursues his presidential ambitions. The temporary loss of employee benefits means that the Cruz family is probably going to sign up for Obamacare. “I believe we should follow the text of every law, even law I disagree with,” Ted Cruz told CNN today. The Texas senator — who once said, “by golly, we really, really, really dislike ObamaCare. Can we add a couple of more reallys? I want to make it clear that it is really, really, really” — added that he would continue to try to dismantle the program while it was keeping his family healthy.
