During his 21-hour filibuster in opposition to the Affordable Care Act, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz chose to read Dr. Suess’s “Green Eggs and Ham” to his children. But what he should have read is The Daily Caller’s own “Green Eggs and Obamacare.” Take a look:

I am Sam.
Uncle Sam.

Uncle Sam-I-Say.
Won’t you accept the ACA?

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

Would you support it here or there?
Would you fund Obamacare?

I can’t support it here or there.
I will not fund Obamacare.

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

John Roberts says it’s just a tax.
Do you dispute the high court’s facts?

I do dispute the high court’s facts.
And no one wants another tax.

I won’t support it here or there.
I will not fund Obamacare.

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

Just fall in line like all the rest.
Trust the prez; he knows what’s best!

No need to read the ACA.
(We even passed the bill that way!)

I know you passed the bill that way.
It was improper, Sam-I-Say.

I do dispute the high court’s facts.
And no one wants another tax.

I won’t support it here or there.
I will not fund Obamacare.

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

The law is well-liked, don’t you see?
Just ask an insurance company.

Well-liked? I strongly disagree.
It’s just another subsidy.

Just because nobody likes it,
There’s no reason we should spike it.

There’s every reason, Sam-I-Say.
Democracy should work that way.

It’s not well-liked, it isn’t free.
It’s just another subsidy.

I do dispute the high court’s facts.
And no one wants another tax.

I won’t support it here or there.
I will not fund Obamacare.

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

Conservatives are full of spite.
Healthcare is a human right!

You have no right to make us pay.
States are sovereign in the USA.

These are just right-wing distortions.
Now, won’t you insure teen abortions?

I’m not okay with teen abortion.
I won’t help Big Pharma make a fortune.

I won’t accept the ACA.
I won’t accept it, Sam-I-Say.

You’ll accept it, you always do.
The government has more at stake than you.

Sam! If you will let me be.
I may try it, you will see.

I’ll never let you be, I say.
But you will try it anyway.

You’ll help Big Pharma make a fortune.
You’ll even pay for teen abortion.

You’ll forfeit all your sovereignty.
You’ll approve another subsidy.

You’ll learn to like John Robert’s facts.
You’ll embrace this secret tax.

You’ll support it here and there.
You have no choice; it’s Obamacare!

You will accept the ACA.
Big government is here to stay.
