The staffer told Breitbart News he was giving it to his boss. Senator Ted Cruz (R - TX) began reading Green Eggs and Ham on the floor of the Senate Tuesday night for his children. He did so after he read Bible verses. He compared the the main character's refusal to eat green eggs and ham to the American public's refusal of Obamacare.

This should be next...


I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill,
and I got as far as Capitol Hill.
Well, now I'm stuck in committee and I'll sit here and wait
while a few key congressmen discuss and debate
whether they should let me be a law.
How I hope and pray that they will,
but today I am still just a bill.

-PJ

Just turned on my TV and ted baxter was on. Before I could get the channel changed over to History Channel, I had to endure baxter’s backhanded compliment of Cruz. He maintains the only reason Cruz is doing this is to set himself up for 2016.
I couldn’t get the channel changed fast enough. Counting Cars is no Pawn Stars, but it still blows ted baxter away....

Yes he should... but I read on another thread that he may be limited to 24 hours. Anyone know if that's a newish rule?

I hate to say this, but that's a really poor analogy, 180 degrees from desired: Sam ended up liking the green eggs and ham after he tried them.

I would not like obama's scam.
I would not like it uncle sam.
I would not like it here or there.
I won't survive obamacare.
On this train-wreck, I'll take a pass.
