Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is defiant.
The Texas Republican refuses to back off the idea of using another showdown over government funding to delay ObamaCare, even as Republican leaders are ready to move on.
Cruz’s insistence comes in the face of deep criticism from fellow Senate Republicans.
“I would do anything and I will continue to do anything I can to stop the train wreck that is ObamaCare,” Cruz told ABC News when asked whether he would push the country to the brink of another shutdown.
