Schumer 'Appalled' at Cruz's Interpretation of 'Green Eggs and Ham'
On Wednesday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he was appalled by Senator Ted Cruz’s invocation of the Dr. Seuss children’s book Green Eggs and Ham during his filibuster against funding of Obamacare. Cruz read Green Eggs and Ham to put his two children to bed. Schumer said that Cruz misunderstood the book, however: “I was appalled…Green Eggs and Ham has a moral: Don’t criticize something, don’t reject something, until you actually try it. Sam said he didn’t like green eggs and ham for a long time. And then when he finally tried it, he liked it. Maybe Ted Cruz, once Obamacare occurred, might actually like it. I don’t know if he read it.”
