Washington (CNN) – Sen. Ted Cruz really does want healthcare reform, just not Obamacare, the Texas Republican said Thursday night.
The conservative firebrand and self-made arch-foe of the Affordable Care Act was on CNN’s “Crossfire” to defend the tactics he proposed that helped drive the United States to a government shutdown.
And those tactics seem to be working by Cruz’s standards.
We're one week away from the debt ceiling deadline and a temporary solution may be in sight. But is it the right move, and what about the long term?
President Obama will first talk with Senate Democrats today, followed by a meeting with Republican leadership.
In the Crossfire tonight, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who is among the Democrats meeting with the president, and Senator Ted Cruz, who has been at forefront of the Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare.
They'll join hosts Van Jones and Newt Gingrich to make their case tonight at 6:30 and 11:30pm ET.
