Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke for more than 21 hours on the US Senate floor this week to explain his reasons for defunding Obamacare. During his filibuster, Cruz said that congressional leaders need to listen to their constituents at home and end the massive takeover of health care.
During his lengthy speech, the Texas Senator said he spoke with think tanks in states all across the country and read statements from many of them about the implementation of Obamacare. This included a quote from Brett Healy, president of the MacIver Institute. The full text of the Cruz filibuster is available here, including the quote from the MacIver Institute..
