Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), the Senate’s leading critic of the Affordable Care Act, denounced a vote Thursday to prohibit filibusters against appellate court nominees as a scheme to save the health law.

“The heart of this action is directed at packing the D.C. Circuit because that is the court that will review the lawless behavior of the Obama administration implementing ObamaCare,” he said.

“President Obama and the administration refuse to follow the plain text of the law and the D.C. Circuit is the court of appeals that has been holding the administration accountable.”

Cruz said the rules change, which passed Thursday with only 50 Democratic votes, “was designed to pack that court with judges that they believe will be a rubber stamp.”
