Ted Cruz is quite literally just pushing buttons to raise eyebrows at this point. The Texas senator who essentially campaigned for a government shutdown with his crusade against Obamacare is now protesting one. Cruz answered the president's rallying cry on Twitter to end the shutdown, retweeting Obama's status: “Retweet if you want this #shutdown to end.” The irony of the move wasn’t lost on other Twitter users. “Damn, bruh. How does it feel to be a liar?” was one response. Another quipped: “@SenTedCruz endorses @BarackObama!” According to a Pew Research poll, a majority of Twitter users blame Republicans for the shutdown, but an equally large number oppose Obamacare.
