For those who aren't aware; Sen. Ted Cruz is currently "filibustering" in order to stop the removal of the "defunding Obamacare" section of the house bill that will prevent a Government shutdown. Except it's not a filibuster, as Reid filed cloture on the motion to proceed today, which means there will be a vote on it Wednesday at 1p regardless of Cruz's "filibuster". Cruz is just grandstanding in order to raise his profile & make the House Republicans less pissed, I suppose.
The best part is, he read from "Green Eggs & Ham" because, according to him, “they do not like Obamacare in a box, with a fox, in a house, or with a mouse.” Except, as anyone who actually read that book knows, the lesson is that once the narrator tries Green Eggs & Ham, he likes it.
Could Congress be any more broken? Could Cruz be anymore clueless as to how Congress works? Unfortunately, the answer to both of those is "probably".
