AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz is being heckled for opposing the Obama administration’s health care law at a town hall in Austin.

The Republican took several sympathetic questions but, about 20 minutes into the event, opponents began yelling. They urged him to vote against a GOP-backed Senate bill to repeal and replace the health care law.

Cruz replied “let’s talk about Obamacare,” to which Austin retiree Gary Marsh replied, “Can I please request that you refer to it as the Affordable Care Act?” Cruz shot back: “You can request it. But I’m gonna decline.”

Marsh then stood up and defended the health care law for several minutes. Cruz gave a lengthy answer explaining why he thinks it should be repealed.

Police stood near the hecklers, but no one was removed.
