Texas Woman Asks Sen. Ted Cruz: Take DNA Test ‘To Prove You’re Human’

A woman, who has multiple pre-existing conditions, confronted Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who strongly opposes Obamacare and health care assistance from the government.

The woman cornered Cruz at a campaign event about his proposed high-risk pools for people with pre-existing conditions:

I’m a woman over 50, who has seven active pre-existing conditions. I’m not counting being female, and a survivor of abuse. I purchase my individual policy on the Health Insurance Exchange.

If you force me into a high-risk pool, you will either bankrupt me or kill me. I take your threats of medical aggression personally and seriously; and I can assure you, I’m not the only Texan who does.

My question is: Will you pledge to submit to a DNA test, to prove that you’re human?

Cruz dodged the question in his reply:

One of the great things about our democratic system is that we can treat each other with respect and civility.

The woman asked Cruz a second time:

Is that a yes or a no?

Cruz fired back:

Ma’am, if you want to engage in insults, that’s your prerogative, but I’m not going to reciprocate.

The woman came back with her question:

It’s a yes-or-no question.
