Ted Cruz made it harder for leaders to betray conservative voters

Washington Post:

Back in 2013, some Republicans had called Cruz "speaker." House Speaker Boehner had a few other names for him.
Republican leaders found it more difficult to say one thing at election time and then cut a deal to fund Democrats after Cruz was elected.  For that reason the Republican leadership in Washington thought he was not a team player.  In fact he was standing up for the team that got him elected.  It is not the job of elected officials to make it easy to betray campaign promises.  Boehner and McConnell look like the leaders of the preemptive surrender caucus.  They need to find a way to thwart Democrat spending on Obamacare, and amnesty if they hope to survive in the majority.
