Woman asks Cruz to take a DNA test to prove he’s human

A Texas woman has one request for Sen. Ted Cruz: prove you’re human.
During a campaign event in Austin Tuesday night, voter Tammy Talpas approached the Republican senator and said she wanted to read him a letter.
‘I’m a woman over 50 who as of February 7th has seven active pre-existing conditions. I’m not counting being female and a survivor of abuse,’ she asks in a now-viral video.
‘I purchased 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 these threats of medical aggression personally and seriously, and I can assure you I’m not the only Texan who does.’
Talpas then poses a question to Cruz: ‘Will you pledge to submit to a DNA test to prove that you’re human?’
‘Well ma’am, thank you for that, and one of the great things about our democratic system is we can treat each other with respect and civility,’ he said in response.
When Talpas demanded if that was a yes or a no to her question, Cruz fired back: ‘Ma’am, if you want to engage in insults, that’s your prerogative, but I’m not going to reciprocate.’He then walked away.
Cruz has faced a tremendous amount of backlash for his views on health care. The senator was also a big proponent of repealing the Affordable Care Act and pushed for the high-risk pool.
