Cruz: "Harry Reid Affirmatively Wants A Government Shutdown"


SEN. TED CRUZ: "I'll tell you, unfortunately, I think Harry Reid wants to force a government shutdown. The House acted at 12:30 in the morning on Sunday. I think the Senate should have been called back in session on Sunday. Harry Reid decided to leave everyone home on their vacation on Sunday instead of calling us in to work. I think Harry Reid affirmatively wants a government shutdown. I think that's unfortunate. We're seeing right now the House is compromising a third time right now and Harry Reid has said, 'Whatever you do, I won't talk to you, I won't compromise, my absolutists position is if every bit of Obamacare isn't funded, I'm shutting the federal government down.' That's a mistake."
