The Big Conversation
Despite lacking a clear path forward on his quest to defund Obamacare, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz isn't backing down.
Cruz, Texas' junior U.S. senator, said on Sunday that he would push ahead with his long-shot bid to eliminate funding for the president's health care law.
Cruz was thrust into the middle of bitter Republican infighting over the issue last week after the House passed a government spending bill that eliminated funding for Obamacare. Some House Republicans accused him of surrendering after he said the bill stood no chance of passing the Senate.
