And some people ain’t thinkin’ before they tweet.
Midler’s “some Christians ain’t Christian” gem came immediately after she accused Sen. Cruz of hypocrisy for having taxpayer-subsidized health care:
.@tedcruz do your kids know that you voted for healthcare for life for yourself while denying it to others?

Just one problem: he doesn’t. As Sen. Cruz informed Sen. Durbin earlier today, while he is eligible for the congressional health care program, he is not enrolled:
After animated back & forth w/Durbin, Sen Cruz says he's eligible for govt subsidized healthcare policy but not currently covered by it

CHECK. MATE.. Cruz to Durbin: "I'm eligible for [gov't healthcare] but I'm not covered by it." Dems won't get that soundbite. #MakeDCListen
