CNN's Chris Cuomo challenged Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Wednesday morning after he said that Obamacare was causing premiums to skyrocket and hurting Americans.

"You bein' a little dangerous with how much political spin you put on something that's so central to the well being of so many families?" Cuomo asked.

"I appreciate the adjective you tossed my way," Cruz replied.

"You know, John Adams famously said that facts are stubborn things, here are some facts," Cruz added, pointing out that more than 5 million Americans have lost their health insurance already under Obamacare.
