Ted Cruz will use this to become the next Speaker of the House.  He will do it by showing he is ruthless and effective.

Last week, Cruz advised the House Republicans to stick by his shutdown or defund Obamacare by passing small, individual spending bills, department by department.

The Republicans in the House scoffed at the idea of passing a plethora of small bills.

Today, as every paper screamed out Republicans had caused the government shutdown,  tours of veterans were turned back from visiting the WWII memorial because of this shutdown, ….

…. the house scrambled to fund the piecemeal “park funding bill”, “veteran’s funding bill”, and Washington DC funding bill….

Cruz was right.  The strategy may disembowel the Democrats.  How can they not pass a bill that puts people back to work?  The Senate will collectively or individually pass the individual bills, leaving the funding for Obamacare, dead in the House.  If the Senate doesn’t pass the unrelated bills, they become the objects of terror.

Cruz will become the next  House Speaker.  He was able to achieve what Boehner was not.  There is now nothing that Boehner can do.  It is finished….

But wait a second.  It has already been disclosed  over the whole course of this event, that there are a number of Republicans (45) whose constituents back home want them to vote for a budget including Obamacare.  All that has to happen, is that it gets put on the floor, and they, with the Democrats, can pass it over the Tea Party’s objections. The votes are there.

The Government reopens.  Ted Cruz, who then appears reckless, dangerous, and who lost, …. does not automatically become the next Speaker of the House.
