    His talk is often much stronger than his bite. However, that was perhaps because he thought he was on the margins for many years. He's now growing in popularity and name and may feel more empowered to act on his talk.

    Also, the vote on Monday is for cloture, which can't be filibustered.

    •  Sorry to tell you, but cloture requires 60 votes. (0+ / 0-)

      If it doesn't get sixty, it's gone.

       There's already one Republican voting no - Spanky DeMint, who wants the cuts to be permanent, AND who believes there are provisions in this deal (unemployment extension) that add too much rto the deficit.

       In other words if 39 Dems say no, along with Bernie, it's back to the drawing board on this one, and a MUCH better deal can be worked out!
