Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz thinks that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton might be running away from President Obama's rocky record on Obamacare.

Today on Fox News, Cruz pointed to former President Bill Clinton's remarks about Obama failing to keep his promise to Americans that they could keep their health care plans if they liked them.

"That was certainly revealing and it suggests perhaps that Hillary Clinton is looking to run away from President Obama and Obamacare and that ought to be a signal to Democrats -- this thing isn't working," Cruz said.

More people have lost their health insurance as a result of Obamacare, than people who have successfully enrolled in the program, Cruz noted, suggesting that it was a signal to both parties to start over.

An estimated 50,000 people have either paid for or put a particular health insurance plan in their shopping cart on healthcare.gov since its launch Oct. 1, but five million or more have been told their health insurance policies are being cancelled because they don't comply with Obamacare.

"I don't think it's fixable," Cruz said. "The White House is coming in with all of these fixes and bells and whistles but they're not going to work. It's fundamentally flawed."
