"The entire Republican Senate caucus has signed a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, informing him that they will filibuster any legislative measure that comes before the Senate prior to the body considering a budget or tax cut legislation."
I think this is a fight that Democrats can win. Here is what Republicans will essentially be saying:
We won't vote to extend unemployment benefits until the top 1% of earners get to keep their tax cuts!
Military service men and women can continue to expect to be kicked out of the armed forces until the top 1% of earners get to keep their tax cuts!
Forget about starting to pass legislation on immigration reform until the top 1% of earners get to keep their tax cuts!
I can't believe that conservatives are willing to stop everything in the Senate to benefit the richest people in our society. It's politics 101 for Democrats to oppose this kind of legislative bullying. If the Democrats can't get the word out and make this a winning issue they really are a bunch of spineless turds.
