    When the Republicans controlled the Senate they threatened the NUCLEAR OPTION over the issue of judicial appointments.  Obama and the Democrats should be willing to invoke the NUCLEAR OPTION for something as important as fiscal policy and tax fairness.

    The Democrats need to get tough and they can force the middle class tax cuts through with the rich tax cuts expiring.

      could keep the Senate in session until it passes.  Why leave on December 17, 2010.  If the Republicans want to filibuster make them stay through Sundays and Christmas and New Year's Eve.
