Senator Ted Cruz's filibuster goes well past Hour-19 as I write this at around 10 AM Toronto time and he is still going strong. Last night at 8 PM he read "Green Eggs and Ham" to his daughters from the Senate floor as that's probably the time he usually spends with them. I believe he has now beaten all other filibusters done to date.
During his marathon speech on the Senate floor Tuesday in opposition to funding the Affordable Care Act in the continuing resolution, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took a break ... to read bedtime stories to his two young girls.
He said that his two daughters were watching C-SPAN2 at home — he told them to turn on the station at 8 p.m. Cruz read his daughters verses from the Bible. And then he moved on to the Dr. Seuss classic, "Green Eggs and Ham."...........
