This is what a faux filibuster looks like: Senator Ted Cruz reads Green Eggs and Ham to his daughters because Green Eggs and Ham, according to him, is just like Obamacare for the American people: “they do not like Obamacare in a box, with a fox, in a house, or with a mouse.”

Except he seems to completely misunderstand the book because, as the narrator in the story learns, once he actually tries green eggs and ham, he realizes they’re delicious.

Senator Cruz, you do not like Obamacare, so you say? Try it! Try it! And you may!
