Bless You, Sen. Bernie Sanders! You're doing a great job, you're a real Patriot.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken to the Senate floor to launch an old fashioned, real live filibuster against the Bad Deal to give tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.  Today he is asking the hard questions of our national leaders about why those tax cuts are necessary.

Tweet this up people! Make sure more people notice it!  Bernie Sanders is currently the #2 trending topic on Twitter, yet a lot of news outlets still aren't reporting on this. Let's stay on them to report the Filibuster!  KEEP AT IT!

He's been at this since 10:25 AM EST, and he's still going strong!
