Cruz Vows To Keep Fighting

Updated: Monday, October 21 2013, 02:25 PM CDT

Sixteen days of a government shutdown seems to have hurt the poll numbers of every member of congress. But Texas Senator Ted Cruz's political star appears to be on the rise.

Cruz has taken a very visible stand against the Affordable Care Act and overspending in the U.S. government. So visible, many associate him with the government shutdown.

"I think it was absolutely worth taking a stand. Look, people are frustrated, frustrated with Washington because career politicians in Washington aren't listening to the American people," Cruz says.

He says the money lost in the 16 day shutdown will ultimately salvage jobs and our economy in the end.

"When you listen to Texans, their number one priority is jobs and bringing back economic growth. Obamacare is the biggest job killer in this country," Cruz says.

Did the shutdown cause more harm than good? With a temporary plan in place that only gets the government operating through the beginning of the year. Senator Cruz says it's one that puts the United States further into debt.

"The Washington establishment cut a lousy deal that has more debt, more spending and does nothing, zero, for all of the young people coming out of school who can't find a job because of Obamacare. This deal does nothing," Cruz says.
