Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who has vowed to repeal "every word" of Obamacare if elected president next year, will soon be signing up for coverage under the plan.

Cruz, according to media reports, had been covered under the health plan of his wife, Heidi, who is taking a leave of absence from Goldman Sachs to help his campaign.

"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," the Texas lawmaker told the Des Moines (Iowa) Register on Tuesday.

Under President Barack Obama's signature Affordable Care Act, members of Congress seeking insurance must sign up through an exchange.

One clarifying comment: he does not have to sign up through the exchange. But if does not, he forfeits the employer contribution. So if he is so against the ACA he can get his insurance by going out to the "market place" on his own. But then maybe he or his wife has a pre-existing condition that would make private insurance impossible or expensive. (Mental health issues are part of most plans. Not sure moron is covered though.)
