Symbolic Senate Vote on Taxes Saturday – Just What We Need

Posted on December 3, 2010

In a nation overwhelmed with fiscal devastation on all sides reminiscent of the famous scene above  from Gone With the Wind, our Senate wants to waste your time and theirs with a “Symbolic” vote on taxes.

The measures set for a vote on Saturday are not likely to muster the needed 60 votes in the 100-member chamber to clear a Republican procedural roadblock. Meanwhile, congressional leaders and the Obama administration officials are set to continue private talks of their own.

Senior Democratic aides said they did not expect any significant progress until at least next week.
