Sen. Peter King Leading The Charge For RINOs In Their Attack Against Sen. Cruz

Republican Congressman  Peter King said Monday it is time to take the gloves  off and call out members of his own party by name, after a failed strategy to  defund Obamacare appeared to diminish the GOP’ reputation in recent polls.

Mr. King, of New York, said he’s not going to take it anymore and will freely  criticize freshman Sen. Ted  Cruz, Texas  Republican, who led the drive to scrap the health care law as a precondition for  a spending deal ahead of Oct. 1.

“Ted Cruz and 30 or 40 people in the House. We have to start going after him  by name. … It’s really time to speak out against him,” Mr. King told MSNBC’s  “Morning Joe.”

He also said President Obama should be playing a “more aggressive role” as  the leader of the country in talks to end the  government shutdown and raise the debt limit.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat, told the program there is a  shorter route to consensus.

Get all of the Democratic and Republican women in the House in one room, and  “we would get this done in a few hours.”
