“Well, this has been a productive exercise hasn’t it?” snarked another Republican congressman.“We can blame Ted Cruz, and yeah, he convinced a lot of people that they were somehow not really conservatives if we didn’t take this route, and that’s ridiculous. But at the end of day, we played along. So shame on us.”

Cruz still holds considerable sway among House conservatives, who rallied around his cause.

But even within the ranks of the conference’s most ideologically pure, there’s frustration with the path Cruz led them down.

“You can’t just pull the pin on the grenade, roll it in the tent and walk away,” one conservative Republican said.“There’s real frustration” within the House Republican conference, the lawmaker added.
