Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon to advocate defunding Obamacare. "I rise today in an effort to speak for 26 million Texans and for 300 million Americans," Cruz said. Politicians in the body are not listening to the concerns of the people, he claimed. Soon after taking the floor, Cruz launched a tweet with the hashtag "#MakeDCListen"
