by Burke Speaker | September 25, 2013 9:59 am

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is staging a faux filibuster — not┬átechnically[1] one because of legislative rules — to delay the Senate [2]from voting on the House bill that strips funding from Obamacare.

Senate Democrats are eager to amend the bill and restore funding for the law, but Sen. Cruz wants to first draw attention to the issue and delay any early voting by the Senate.

This reading of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ is one of the filibuster’s long long speech’s highlights.
