Government Shutdown Divides 2016 GOP Hopefuls

A clear divide over President Obama's health care law "separates the emerging field of potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates. And it offers a preview of the battle Republicans nationwide will fight in their effort to build the party and win back the White House," the AP reports.

"On one side of the health care fight are Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Texas' Cruz and others who say they are standing on principle and willing to oppose the law at all costs."

"On the other side are those taking what they call a pragmatic approach by accepting the law, if grudgingly, and moving on. Holding that view are New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who says that shutting down the government would violate the public trust."
