MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz says he will oppose the health care overhaul even if it means shutting down segments of the federal government. But former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush warns that such an approach is "quite dicey" politically. A clear divide over the health care law separates the emerging field of potential Republican 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. On one side of the health care debate are Florida's Sen. Marco Rubio and others who say they are standing on principle. On the other side are Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and others taking what they call a pragmatic approach by accepting the law and moving on.
