But the event pivoted nearly entirely to healthcare after an attendee asked if the Senate GOP's repeal and replace bill would impact veterans.
Critics have argued Cruz's idea could disrupt the risk pools established under the ACA and could force less healthy people to have to pay more for coverage. "I think we look like laughingstocks if we can't get our act together and actually do what we said we would do".
For many conservatives, lowering insurance premiums is key.
When McConnell told GOP colleagues at a presentation this spring that the bill would not touch pre-existing conditions, Cruz did not specifically object.
A conservative Republican aide acknowledged that Sen.
Another attendee accused Cruz of stalling during a long story about his healthcare debate with Sen. "While we have serious concerns with the initial draft of the Senate health care bill, we believe the amendment proposed by Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee offers the possibility of removing several of the most restrictive regulations in Obamacare that rob people of health care choices and drive insurance costs higher and higher". Senate Democrats have been "hard no's" on GOP proposals, Cruz said.
These claims are getting strong pushback from Cruz defenders.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was not so complimentary, quickly dismissing the plan. Cruz started with Chairman Alexander, consumer freedom has been one of Cruz's major points.

But the Cruz amendment could also isolate other more moderate senators in the conference, who already have deep reservations about the bill, including how it might negatively impact patients with pre-existing conditions.
Meadows suggested the Cruz amendment would be an acceptable substitute for the House's MacArthur amendment.
Cruz said such a repeal should be delayed "either a year or two years" to give lawmakers time to work separately on a replacement. "The best person to choose is not me, not Washington, it's you".

Sen. Richard Burr, another ally to Senate leadership, said, "The Senate bill keeps current-law protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions, prohibiting the denial of health insurance coverage for this reason". Rosey Abuabara held a sign that said "NO CRUZ CARE". Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said, according to an Iowa Public Radio story posted Wednesday. Government subsidies for those ACA-compliant plans would be available to people making less than $42,000 or so per year.
"You would likely see some market segmentation".
Other conservative groups like the amendment. A poll in June found that while Texan voters did not view Obamacare favorably, they had an even more unfavorable view of the House Republicans' bill to repeal it. Vice President Pence would cast the tie-breaking vote.
