"Republicans Closing down our Government over Obama Care"
Rep. Peter King Rep. New York
“This was a fool’s error started by Ted Cruz,” said King. He added, “But we can’t just blame him. We have to blame his acolytes in the Republican conference—30 or 40 who stood with him…I blame Ted Cruz and his supporters.”
King admitted “I don’t know if you can compromise” with the far right wing of his own party, but said if Obama can come up with a proposal with meaningful cuts or meaningful reductions in spending “Boehner can show he achieved something.” The GOP, King said, “can’t let Ted Cruz have veto power.”
