John McCain and Ted Cruz Offer Drastically Different Advice to House Republicans as Shutdown Nears


"That will happen sooner or later."

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 27: U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks to members of the media after a vote on the Senate floor September 27, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The Senate has passed a continuing resolution 54-44 to fund the government through November 15 with the exclusion of defunding the Obama care in which the provision was passed in the House.

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) may belong to the same political party, but their approaches to the current Obamacare battle are drastically different.

McCain on Monday night called on the U.S. House to pass a "clean" continuing resolution and send it back to the Senate. In other words, the Arizona Republican wants exactly what the Democrats want: A continuing resolution that leaves Obamacare untouched and funds the government.

"That will happen sooner or later," McCain said, adding that the Republicans "can't win."

On the other hand, Sen. Cruz urged his fellow Republicans to stand strong against the uncompromising Democrats in the Senate.

"#DontBlink," Cruz wrote on Twitter Monday night.

Cruz's advice was very short and to the point, but it's meaning is clear.
