David Gregory grilled Senator Ted Cruz on his opposition to Obamacare on Sunday's "Meet the Press."

Cruz appeared on the show days after he spoke against Obamacare on the Senate floor for 21 hours. Gregory pointed out that the legislation has been "tested" by the political system, and that Mitt Romney ran on repealing Obamacare and lost. He asked Cruz for evidence that his efforts have resulted in a change of public opinion.

Cruz proceeded to hammer the legislation, saying unions are rejecting Obamacare.

Gregory interjected. “I asked you a specific question based on the facts on the ground," he said. "You’ve made all these arguments. My goodness, you went and spoke for 21 hours to make these arguments. You haven’t moved anyone.”

"The American people overwhelmingly reject Obamacare,” Cruz said. “They understand it’s not working. The only people who aren’t listening to the argument are the career politicians in Washington. It’s Harry Reid, who wants to use brute political force."
