AMERICA'S SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, INDEPENDENT OF VERMONT, TAKES A STAND!
At this hour, Senator Bernie Sanders, Independent socialist of Vermont, is filibustering the craven compromise, Obama's tax cut bill. When was the last time a Democratic senator (Bernie caucuses with the Democrats) filibustered a bill on the Senate floor, a bill negotiated by his President? This is a historic moment. The C-SPAN caption says: "SEN. SANDERS BEGAN WHAT HE CALLS A TAX CUT FILIBUSTER AT 10:25am ET."
"Now there's another issue I'm going to touch on, and I'M GOING TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON THIS AGREEMENT BECAUSE I DON'T THINK IT GOT THE ATTENTION IT DESERVES. WE HAVE A JOB TO DO; IF IT MEANS STAYING HERE THROUGH CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR'S, THAT IS OUR JOB!"
GO BERNIE, GO, GO, GO!
