As we mentioned at the top of the program – a Cruz aide tells Dana Bash he won't even rule out another shutdown. Republicans on Capitol Hill are fed up, but in his home state of Texas, the reviews are much different. 

Ed Lavandera is OutFront from Dallas.

    Cruz should be tried for crimes against the state. By willfully shutting down the government, he is "giving aid and comfort to the enemy". He is a radical fundamentalist whose principal aims are to further his own political agenda by abolishing "Obama-care" and destabilizing the GOP. I am registered Independent because I think both sides have corruption issues, but, honestly, would you want a radical running the GOP??
