Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) vowed to continue the fight against Obamacare on Wednesday, blasting the soon-to-be resolved budget debate as an example of “Washington’s indifference to the plight of the American people.”

“The fight against Obamacare must continue in the face of Washington’s apathy,” he said.
