Cruz' Confusing Plan, Explained

Cruz and Lee's strategy today is to filibuster the bill passed by the House, which defunds ObamaCare.

They want to filibuster it because if it passes, Reid can very easily clip out the defunding provision on a majority vote.

They wish to filibuster it so that they can force Reid to agree to new rules: That the defund provision will not be taken out, or that any stripping must be done with 60 votes (that is, that the move to strip can be filibustered).
