Because Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and his cohorts inflamed the Republican base, the GOP feels embattled when it ought to feel empowered, George Will said Tuesday night.

Speaking during a panel appearance on Special Report, Will asserted that the arguments over spending and entitlements have shifted “radically in the Republicans’ favor.”

“Three years ago, we were talking about the Simpson-Bowles approach. The framework was going to be: cut some entitlements or cut the growth of entitlements in exchange for tax increases,” Will said. But because of the sequester, Republicans can give “Democrats billions to spend now in exchange for trillions cut in the out years.”
