Cruz Is Unapologetic as Republicans Criticize Shutdown

Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican who was among the architects of the 16-day partial federal government shutdown, remained unrepentant as senior members of his party criticized his tactics in fighting Obamacare.

Asked on ABC’s “This Week” if he would support another government shutdown unless the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is defunded, Cruz said yesterday he “would do anything, and I will continue to do anything I can, to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare.”
