    Ted Cruz Recites ‘Green Eggs and Ham’

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, leaves the floor of the Senate after skirmishing with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., over the Affordable Care Act, popularly know as "Obamacare," at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Sept. 23, 2013. The Republican-controlled House and the Democrat-controlled Senate are at an impasse after GOP conservatives approved legislation Friday in the House to keep the government running but at the cost of wiping out President Obama's signature health care law.

    Around 8 p.m. EST, Ted Cruz’s fauxlibuster took an odd turn when he decided it would be appropriate to read his daughters a bedtime story. The Texas senator began to recite Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor, with dramatic pause and all. “Green Eggs and Ham has some applicability, as curious as it may sound, to the Obamcare debate,” Cruz said once he had finished. Americans “did not like green eggs and ham, and they did not like Obamacare either.” Watch Cruz’s entire rendition here.
