    If any thought went into what Ted Cruz said above (open to discussion), I think he's just trying to let his base know that the plan to defund the ACA is going to fail this go-round while attempting to keep this issue relevant after that failure in an effort to convince people to keep paying attention to him.  There are, what, 30--40 members in the House and no more than a couple in the Senate who would actually allow a government shutdown/default in order to defund the ACA?  NFW in 2013.  Also, as you note, it would basically take huge R wave election in 2016 for there to be a glint of hope for defunding/repeal to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.
