Cruz: “I’ll Talk Until I Am No Longer Able To Stand”

ted_cruz_2013Republican Ted Cruz of Texas was still on the Senate floor talking Wednesday– a dramatic step in defense of his high profile and controversial plan to prevent any funding for Obamacare.

“I intend to speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand,” he said Tuesday. “All across this country, Americans are suffering because of Obamacare. Obamacare isn’t working.”

Cruz, who began speaking shortly after 2:40 p.m. ET Tuesday, was alone for nearly an hour before being joined by Sen. Mike Lee, a Utah Republican.

The tea party allies engaged in an extended dialogue that was part stamina test for Cruz and part political theater for the rest of Capitol Hill.
