Texas Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz, as you may know, has been a vocal and active opponent of the Affordable Care Act.

The Senator himself and his family had, until yesterday, gotten their health insurance through his wife, a managing director at Goldman Sachs.

Mrs. Cruz is now on unpaid leave during the campaign, which means, as the Senator told the Des Moines Registerthat he and the family will be signing up for Obamacare.
