Sen. Ted "Calgary" Cruz has taken quite a beating for his self-absorbed nihilisitc fake filibuster meant to relieve the rubes on the right of their dollars for his own self-aggrandizement. But I have a question: Does Cruz understand 'Green Eggs and Ham'?:
During Sen. Ted Cruz’ marathon talk-a-thon, he dramatically read one of his children’s favorite books, Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham, saying it was a good-night story for his children.

In the classic Seuss novel, a grumpy character declares “I do not
like them, Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham…I would not like
them here or there. I would not like them anywhere.”
Eventually, the character tries the green eggs and ham to appease his
persistent friend and finds that he quite likes them: “I like green
eggs and ham! I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!”
The moral of the story is "don't knock something until you've tried it."
This is what Tea-Publicans most fear: that the public will try "ObamaCare" and come to like it.
So here's an earned media event for Democratic groups and health care groups: on the morning of Tuesday, October 1, host a "Green Eggs and Ham" breakfast, and invite speakers from the health industry and your local Democratic politicians to educate the public on the Health Insurance Marketplace. Have a little fun at Teddy Calgary's expense.
