"I believe we should continue to delay such funding at least until economic growth returns to historic averages, and I intend to object to consideration of any Continuing Resolution that does not include a vote to delay funding of Obamacare," Cruz said in a statement.Even the House Republicans decided to skip on this fight, and left Obamcare defunding out. (They made up for that by giving the long defunct ACORN another kick in the nonexistent shin). So yes, Ted Cruz is more of a wingnut than the teabagger caucus in the House. And he's there for the next six years. Yeehaw.
Cruz has already ruffled some feathers within the GOP with his acerbic style. And by demanding a provision to defund the healthcare law, he would be picking a fight that most of his Republican colleagues don't seem eager to wage.
