Let’s start of with one of Crus’z famous lies stating that “Obamacare is a job killer.” This sounds great as it panders to the crowds emotions, however, there is nothing true in this statement, even if one were to stretch the truth.
“The fact checkers say you’re wrong,” Wallace told Cruz. “Since that law went into effect, the unemployment rate fell from 9.9% to 5% as 13 million new jobs were created, and 16.3 million people who were previously uninsured now have coverage. There are plenty of problems with Obamacare, but more people have jobs and health insurance.”
“Fact checkers are not fair and impartial,” Cruz responded. “They are liberal editorial journalists. And they have made it their mission to defend Obamacare.”
“Wait,” Wallace shot back. “There’s certainly no question that more people have jobs and more people health insurance.”
“Yes, there isquestion,” Cruz replied. “The fact is from 2008 to today, we’ve seen economic growth of 1.2% on average.”
Cruz is a lawyer, so by nature he is a liar, notice how he suddenly moves from 2008 to today; 2008 and 2009 were naturally the worst years in terms of finding a job, because of the massive financial crisis and the great recession it triggered. More importantly, Obamma was not president in 2008. Remember the only time you can trust a lawyer is when his lips are not moving and that about sums up Cruz.

While, we do agree that the BLS (Bureau of Labour statisitics) way of calculating unemployment is flawed, Cruz is using this data to bolster his claims so it’s only fair that we return the favor. Jobs have increased under Obama’s tenure; the unemployment rate has droped to below 5%. Lawyers rely on facts, even if they are distorted and even with distorted facts that the BLS provides Cruz cannot support his poor argument. He is thus not only a bad lawyer but also a terrible liar.
