Senator Ted Cruz has it right. If the federal government closes down, we can all blame Barack Obama and Harry Reid. Neither will compromise on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). For them it is all or nothing.
Obama has never "worked" with Congress, that is unless both chambers belonged to his Democratic Party, to come up with a compromise. Obama is a self-centered politician. His legacy cannot be tarnished...even though it already has plenty of scars and scandals!
