On Friday Illinois congressman Adam Kinzinger continued the seemingly endless line of attack from establishment Republicans against Texas Senator Ted Cruz over the effort to defund Obamacare that resulted in a 16 day partial shutdown of 17 percent of the federal government.
Kinzinger had the following to say to Buzzfeed:
“I don’t think there’s any question [it’s worse]. I could have written this story from day one. If you follow the Cruz plan, you end up exactly where we are,” Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger told BuzzFeed. “I think it’s obvious that we had a really grown up plan on how to deal with this, we had some in our party who rejected that, and we had to go along with [the Cruz] plan.”
Asked if unhappiness with Cruz is widespread in the conference, Kizinger said, “Sure yeah, absolutely. I think we all feel the same.”
Kinzinger told NBC News:
We bought ourselves three months here so from the bigger scale, from the DC scale, three months to have a grown-up conversation about some of the difficulties we face and ways that are agreeable to both sides to get them done.
