Sen. Ted Cruz is doing exactly what I voted him into office for — specifically, reduce wasteful spending and rein in the sheep-off-the-cliff mentality.

The government shutdown was incorrectly placed on the Tea Party’s back. Half the blame goes to the Democrats for not sitting down and working out a compromise.

We see the House Republicans, rather than writing a blank check for the immigration fiasco, helped pass a bill which Harry Reid has already indicated (without even reading) would be DOA when it got to the Senate. If the Democrats don’t get exactly what they want, there is no compromise.

Some years ago, when the shoe was on the other foot, the “obstructionists” were guess who: Pelosi and Reid. Where was the outrage from the left?
