    this is the dry powder crowd, craven to the core.  They wouldn't even campaign for middle class tax cuts in the 2010 campaign!  No, they had to wait until after the election on that issue, because it might have resonated with their base yet angered their 1% constituents.

    •  are you sure you're on the right site? (0+ / 0-)

      Grijalva would. He's not in the Senate.

      If your take is "we're all doomed" then enjoy but more and better Democrats is why many surf to this website. Camping trips and Nader aren't going to get anything done.

      If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.

        When has a democrat ever filibustered legislation supported by Obama?  

        The example must be of a true hold/filibuster, where a group of progressives totally blocks the legislation.  Making angry comments and then voting for the legislation doesn't count.

          Filibuster? I understand its for the minority....Dems have had a majority in the Sen since '06...before PBO

        •  what would you have had them filibuster? (0+ / 0-)

          Remember my point is this is an issue that easily crosses party lines on the street and that it's a chance for national leadership.

          Would you have wanted a Democrat to filibuster HCR out of nowhere when the Republicans were already on the case?
