The Daily Show Waxes Poetic About Sen. Ted Cruz’s Obamacare Filibuster

Jon Stewart starts with a critique that was bouncing all over the web during Sen. Cruz’s 21-hour stand-in at the Capitol, mocking his decision to read from Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham, since it is a book about “a stubborn jerk who decides he hates something before he’s even tried it.” Ironic then because we haven’t given Obamacare a shot yet.

Stick around until the end of the clip, when Stewart dubs Cruz, “The Bore-ax.”
