Anyone remember the 1995 shutdown?

I remember some of the political drama around it, but it came and went without having any lasting impact.

Predictions: They go through with the shutdown. Cruz gets the credit for forcing Boehner's hand on that, and rightly so. Within a week the Dems see that public opinion is going against them and cave. Or they reach a compromise that looks like a cave for the Dems whether it really is or not. Cruz is the huge winner.
