Cruz began by reading Bible passages from "King Solomon's Wise Words," and then compared the Affordable Care Act to the beloved Dr. Seuss story "Green Eggs and Ham," which he read enthusiastically and in full.
"'Green Eggs and Ham' has some applicability, as curious as it may sound, to the Obamcare debate," Cruz said after he finished, to a few audible chuckles from the Senate gallery.
Americans "did not like green eggs and ham, and they did not like Obamacare either," he added. "They did not like Obamacare in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouse."
Think about the moral of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham.
Isn't it, 'How do you know you don't like it if you haven't even tried it?'
Right now, many Republicans hate Obamacare. But, when you ask them about individual components of it -- or even just call it the "Affordable Care Act" -- suddenly, they like it a lot more. The reality just doesn't match all the lies Fox News has told.
