Fox News reports, that despite Cruz's long withdrawn effort to convince the Senate as to why they should not fund Obamacare, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was not impressed. Reid took to Twitter and said that Cruz's talk-a-thon was a "big waste of time."

"With all due respect to Sen. Cruz, I’m not sure we learned anything new," Reid wrote. "It’s been interesting, but it’s also been a big waste of time."

According to Fox News, the Senate is preparing to hold a test vote on a bill that would both fund the government past Sept. 30 and defund the health care law, though Reid is expected to strip the Obamacare language.
