You're not really familiar with how health insurance works are you?

There's a initial vote already scheduled for today. A filibuster does not stop a scheduled vote.

Rand Paul just asked: "Mr. President, why don't you sign up for Obamacare? It's your baby, why don't you want it." I'm paraphrasing what he said.

Standing up to make the point to defund obamacare is not pointless. The effects of the new healthcare bill will seriously hurt this country.
I have BCBS of Michigan and I have received a letter about some changes that will take effect next year and it will change my deductible, it is going up.
Washington did not listen to the people when most Americans opposed the affordable care act when proposed. They did not listen, they just rammed it through and made sure that they were not included into this monstrosity.
This is bad for the American people and the economy of this country.

It's pointless because it doesn't stop the vote that's already been scheduled, and it does not present new information or allow for discussions. It's just a guy trying to make a name for himself.

He is one person who is standing up and speaking out against what most Americans are against. That's all it takes is one person to make a stand.

Under Senate rules, Cruz must yield the floor by noon (1600 GMT) on Wednesday for a procedural vote that will start the Senate towards final passage of the bill to keep government agencies funded through November 15 -- including Obamacare money.

Even if it is only symbolic... At least there is one man willing to go to extreme lengths in an effort to fight something that is absolutely horrible for the American people and is being used as a weapon against political opponents of the Democrats. Congress shall pass no law that applies to the people but does not apply to themselves. They exempted themselves from this disaster. They exempted all of their friends and family from it. It's corruption at its finest.

I realize now that that was worded terribly.

Just found out that my BCBS has be discontinued. My $250 deductible has just went up to a $4000.00 deductible.
It is going to be like that for everybody across the country who has health coverage.
Check with your healthcare providers.

I don't think he is making a name for himself. He sees this train-wreck legislation headed our way that will cost 1.8 trillion dollars over the next ten years and he is trying to do something about it and he is showing that he is willing to go to extremes to do the right thing.
