GOP palefaces speak with forked tongues.
INDIANAPOLIS | While the "no surrender" stance of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, held the limelight during the 16-day federal government shutdown, a Hoosier senator worked behind the scenes and across party lines to get the government reopened and paying its bills on time.
