Ted Cruz: Democrats caused the shutdown
by Aaron Blake, washingtonpost.com -- Jan 26, 2014
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) argued forcefully Sunday that the government shutdown late last year was not the Republican Party's fault, but was in fact the Democrats' doing -- a contention that even members of Cruz's own party disagree with.
"I think it was a mistake that President Obama and the Democrats shut the government down this fall," Cruz said on CBS's "Face the Nation," according to a transcript. "The reason they did so is that President Obama dug in and said he wouldn't compromise and he wouldn't negotiate."

Senator Ted does not like the GOP's "Green-eggs" Facts:
During the shutdown, Cruz and other tea party conservatives said they wouldn't vote to fund the government unless the agreement eliminated funding for Obamacare. The White House and Democrats, meanwhile, balked at any changes to Obamacare.
Eventually, after more than two weeks of a shutdown, GOP leaders like House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) gave in and passed a bill without Obamacare changes -- over the objections of Cruz and others.
