No, Elizabeth Warren is not in fact the new Ted Cruz.

Recently there has been a lot of talk inside the Beltway about how Senator Elizabeth Warren may now be the new Senator Ted Cruz, because she wants to stop the cromnibus spending bill over restrictions on swaps in Dodd-Frank. There was some hair-tearing about how this would cause a government shutdown.

That talk didn't last long, because while the pundits were all in a tizzy about that, Cruz went ahead and formally challenged the bill's constitutionality over the President's executive action on immigration, forcing the Senate to stay over the weekend to deal with that. There are plenty of angry Senators on the hill today, but they're all angry at Ted Cruz. In all the fuss, Warren has basically been forgotten.

Ted Cruz showed everyone once again just how it's done. Elizabeth Warren? She's no Ted Cruz.
