Cruz vows to speak against ObamaCare until unable 'to stand'
-and - Mr. Smith Goes to Washington [movie]

The Texas Republican senator declared Tuesday afternoon that he intends to speak in opposition to ObamaCare "until I am no longer able to stand."

"ObamaCare isn't working," he said. "There are politicians in this body who are not listening to the people."

Cruz's speech topics ranged from the American revolution to the Washington establishment, his Cuban-born father and the impact of the health care law.

As his speech neared its sixth hour, Cruz took an odd turn by reading his young daughters a bedtime story via the Senate floor cameras. Cruz said his book of choice, Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham," was a favorite of his as a child.
