Senator Ted Cruz launched his 21-hour talk-a-thon to protest Obamacare, but his marathon speech did nothing to stop the vote that may be the first step in restoring funding to the Affordable Care Act. It also did not stop the clock on a possible government shutdown. While some of his fellow Republicans cheered Senator Cruz from the sidelines, others are speaking out against what he did. That includes New York Congressman Peter King. He explained to Anderson why he called Sen. Cruz a "fraud."
Anderson discussed all of this with host of CNN's Crossfire and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Chief Congressional correspondent Dana Bash and senior political analyst David Gergen.
