Senator Ted Cruz is currently “filibustering” on the Senate floor to #MakeDCListen on defunding Obamacare.  According to various pundits and outlets, this is not technically a filibuster of course, but Professor Jacobson explains that a vote for cloture is a vote for Harry Reid.

Update: It’s over. By Senate rule, the new Senate “day” started at noon, and Cruz lost the floor. He spoke for almost 22 hours.
