Washington D.C., (CBS) - Some might say it's "politics as usual in Washington." Democrats in the U.S. Senate have been trying to shoot down the latest republican effort to derail President Obama's new health care law. But before the Senate could move forward today, one senator had to wrap-up a marathon speech.
High noon brought an end to a surreal 21-hour show in the Senate, after delivering a rambling all-night speech, railing against President Obama's health care law. He said Obamacare isn't working and sometimes made random pop culture references, such as I want to point out a few words of wisdom from "Duck Dynasty." Texas Tea Party Republican Ted Cruz has finally surrendered the stage.
"For lack of a better way of describing this, it has been a big waste of time," Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Majority Leader.
"This was all about elevating the debate in the public and giving the American people the chance to speak," said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
After Cruz wrapped up his speech, the Senate voted unanimously to begin debate on a Republican bill that cuts off funding for the president's Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. Democrats plan to remove that provision from a budget bill sent to the Senate last week.
Now, both sides have just days to agree on a new spending plan to avoid a partial government shutdown that looms after October 1st.
That's the same day a major part of the president's health care law kicks in. Starting October 1st, Americans will be able to shop for coverage through national and state-administered insurance exchanges.
Since President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law two and a half years ago, Republicans have voted 42 times to derail it.
A new government report shows Americans will pay an average of $328 a month for a mid-tier insurance plan when health exchanegs open next week for enrollment.
On Monday, Congressman Mike Rogers said the budget situation could have terrible consequences for future generations.
