Jeb Bush to Cruz: Show Self-Restraint

Critics of grandstanding Texas Sen. Ted Cruz are revealing themselves to be a bipartisan bunch. On Sunday, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush questioned Cruz's tactics for defunding the Affordable Care Act, which contributed to a two-week-long government shutdown. Advising him to have a "bit of self-restraint," Bush agreed with the goal, but said, "I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative." He noted that Cruz's strategy actually put a dent in the GOP's public image and has made future reformation of the act much more difficult.
