Senator Ted Cruz, true to his pledge, has pulled all stops in blocking the arrival of the Affordable Care Act by beginning his filibuster against the bill's funding. He's been joined by Kentucky's very own, Senator Rand Paul, who had stood beside Cruz in his battle to bring the people's voice to the walls of the Senate.
