WSJ & Heritage = Not BFFs

The Wall Street Journal had an editorial yesterday titled The Cruz Campaign which questions the tactics being used by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others to deal with the federal budget and funding Obamacare.  The editorial goes on to take a swipe at the Heritage Foundation:
These columns opposed ObamaCare before it was known by that name, and we may have even been the first to call it by that name. We also don't need any lectures about principle from the Heritage Foundation that promoted RomneyCare and the individual mandate that is part of ObamaCare. Or from cable TV pundits who sold Republicans on Mitt Romney despite RomneyCare.
Patrick O'Connor of the WSJ recently wrote what some believe to be a semi-critical piece on the conservative think tank titled Heritage Foundation Becomes a Handful for the GOP.

Although The Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation might not be best friends forever (BFFs), Heritage seems to have become BFFs with a rival think tank.
