U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is pictured on a closed circuit television system in the Senate press gallery during his marathon attack on "Obamacare" at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, September 25, 2013. Standing in a nearly empty Senate Chamber, Cruz spent more than 21 hours making his case to deny funding to implement President Barack Obama's landmark overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, arguing it is hurting the economy.
