Dear Editor:

Sen. Ted Cruz said “We need to make DC listen!” So he talked for 22 hours and injected all his soul into a rendering of Dr. Seuss’s book “Green Eggs and Ham.” Mr. Cruz will stop at nothing to protect the Constitution, which he feels is being defiled by the Affordable Care Act. He is moved that nowhere in that sacred document does it deny an insurance company the right to refuse coverage for injuries from a car accident sustained by a child who had a pre-existing killer disease that was treated by a different insurer, which his parents lost because they were downsized by an employer who relocated to Cambodia.

It’s an insult to the patriotic faith of our Founding Fathers to claim that healthcare is a right. Thomas Paine, contemplating the costs of MRIs, said as much, believes Mr. Cruz.

Typical Republican humor.
