Sen. Cruz In Austin

Updated: Friday, January 10 2014, 12:21 PM CST

Sen. Ted Cruz unleashed another blistering assault on the Obama administration in front of a Downtown Austin audience Friday morning.

Cruz delivered the keynote speech during the final breakfast of the Texas Public Policy Foundation's Policy Orientation conference.

The Tea Party darling blasted the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, calling it an example of the administration's "lawlessness."

That aggressive rhetoric against a law signed off separately by all three branches of the federal government has been a trademark of Cruz's singular style that has captured the fervor of the administration's most vocal opponents. It was also delivered in front of a friendly crowd at the TPPF's annual event which features a slate of conservative luminaries hashing out policy ideas large and small that the conservative think-tank expects to play a role on the state and national level this year.

After his breakfast speech, Sen. Cruz declined to answer any direct questions about any plans to run for the presidency in 2016. Even though he's just starting his second year in office, the fiery freshman's gleeful pugnacity has vaulted him to the top of the list of candidates expected to seek the Republican nomination.

Other possible contenders were also in attendance at this week's Policy Orientation, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, both of whom addressed the conference on Thursday.
