After years of trying to dismantle the Affordable Care Act via repeal, defunding, or shutting down the government, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has just signed up for his dreaded Obamacare. After doing so, he jumped up, took to the streets and starting shouting to everyone he could (It’s a Wonderful Life style) how much he loves it, how grateful he is to have access to it, and how sorry he is for the many years he’s been trying to get rid of it.
Reminiscent of his filibuster when he tried to defund Obamacare and read Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham out loud on the Senate floor, he started reciting the poem again. However now, he was understanding the full meaning behind the story — once he actually tried the Green Eggs and Ham he liked it… just like Cruz likes his Obamacare.
“I get it! I finally get it! He didn’t like the eggs and then he did after he tried it! Now I’m enjoying Obamacare and I didn’t know until I tried it! I want everyone to know the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.
You do not like them. So you say. Try them! Try Them! And you may. Try them and you may, I say.
Say! I like green eggs and ham! I do! I like them, Sam-I-am! And I would eat them in a boat. And I would eat them with a goat. And I will eat them in the rain. And in the dark. And on a train. And in a car. And in a tree. They are so good, so good, you see!
Just like Obamacare!
I do like Obamacare! I do like it. It is fair! I do like it for my health. I do like it, it protects my wealth! I do like it here and there. I do like it everywhere!
I’m sorry America, try it and you’ll see. Obamacare is good for you, as it is for me!!”
This change of heart comes right after the Junior Senator from Texas announced his candidacy for the President of the United States. Is he finally coming around to sanity? I guess only time will tell.
