Cruz said the children's book is one of his favorites, and he read it in its entirety as part of his effort to delay action on a bill to defund Obamacare. Cruz supports defunding Obamacare, but was trying to drag out debate to prevent Democrats from killing the bill. But Schumer said Cruz completely missed the point of the story. "I was appalled," the New York senator told reporters Wednesday. "Green Eggs and Ham has a moral: Don't criticize something, don't reject something, until you actually try it. Sam said he didn't like green eggs and ham for a long time. And then when he finally tried it, he liked it." "Maybe Ted Cruz, once Obamacare occurred, might actually like it," Schumer said, still shaking his head over the book. "I don't know if he read it."
Are we really wanting to get into which party has the stupidest quotes because I'm sure the Democrats still have Sheila Jackson Lee and Harry Reid.
The Cruz to the Future book is a non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward Ted Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow.

Umm ... I dont know anything about the OP but his/her post is in fact true. It happened last year during the whole shutdown debacle.
Cruz is an idiot. Most politicians today are.
Cruz read the tale at 8 p.m., about five hours into his speechifying, saying he was doing it for his two daughters for their bedtime while they were watching C-Span, back home in Texas. He explained that while it was one of his favorite stories, he seldom got the chance to read it to his children because they get to pick the stories, and they don't ask for that one. Cruz also read Bible verses.
Cruz's chief strategist, Jason Johnson, who was apparently on hand for bedtime back in Texas, snapped a photo of the girls, Catherine and Caroline.

I see you had to open it to find out what was inside. At least you knew how to operate it. But really what difference at this point does it all make? Did they have to catheterize you so you could finish leafing through it?
