Republican Recriminations

 After suffering a humiliating loss over the government shutdown, Republican politicians have now turned their sights on each other as they argue about who is at fault.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) helped lead the effort to defund the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," which led to the government shutdown. In a Wednesday interview, he said the Republican's failure was the fault of the "Washington establishment" and his fellow Republican senators.

"I would point out that had Senate Republicans united and supported House Republicans, the outcome of this I believe would've been very, very different," he said.
