Video footage from NBC News shows protesters shouting “USA! USA! USA!” The Washington Post reports that he also received chants of “you have health care, we should too!”

“Thank you for sharing your views,” he said, according to the paper.” You know, part of the First Amendment is about respecting others.”

The “USA!” chants returned before Cruz interjected to make a “couple of observations” about the protesters.

“They should have health care and Obamacare is causing more and more people struggling to climb the economic ladder to lose their health care,” Cruz said.

Cruz then accused Obama’s group, Organizing For America, for being responsible for the protests.

“Every time they’ve come to protest in Texas, they’ve sent a small group of people, and you all have outnumbered them two, and three, and four to one,” he said to the crowd.

Cruz’s campaign against Obamacare has had multiple destinations over the last few months.
