New York, NY, November 01, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Norquist described Senator Cruz and his Tea Party colleagues’ assertion that “if you truly believed and cared, Obamacare would disappear” as “not accurate,” and “not honest, or honorable, or fair to tell voters.” Norquist added that the government shutdown was “misdirected time and effort. It did not do anything to make the abolition or diminution of the damage of Obamacare possible or achievable. It did not accomplish anything.”
Despite his criticism of the GOP’s handling of the shutdown crisis, Norquist remains optimistic that future sequester and tax debates will reunite and strengthen the Republican Party. Norquist is confident that Republicans can maintain a majority in the House of Representatives, and gain a majority in the Senate in the 2014 midterm elections.
