It would’ve been dead if we had a different justice on the United States Supreme Court put there by him,” Trump said, referring to conservative Chief Justice John Roberts, whose decisive 2012 vote upheld the controversial health care law.

While Cruz vocally supported Roberts’ nomination at the time, he was not yet a U.S. senator and therefore could not vote to confirm Roberts to the Supreme Court.
The Cruz campaign did not immediately return with a request for comment.
