At noon Wednesday, in accordance with Senate rules, Sen.Ted Cruz, R-Texas, ended his marathon 21-hour anti-Obamacare speech.
Noon happens to be the same time Rush Limbaugh’s radio show begins each weekday. The coincidence allowed Cruz to call in to Limbaugh’s program and continue his message to the American people.
The senator told Limbaugh and his millions of listeners, “I hope we’ll see more and more Republicans come forward to support this effort.
“If the Senate does the right thing and listens to the American people, they’ll join me and vote to defund Obamacare,” which he called “this disaster, this nightmare, this train wreck.”
Cruz said the “central issue” of his so-called filibuster “wasn’t even Obamacare.”
