The only reason we are talking about a government shutdown is that the US Senate FAILED to do its job. Last year the House of Representatives passed all the appropriation bills. The senate has failed to do so. With an overwhelming majority, Harry Reid was unable to complete the simple task of passing the appropriation bills. They should have been passed by June 30. At least they should have been passed by October 1, the beginning of the new fiscal year. We are now running on continuing resolutions. Read below the fold...

Every once in a while, Richard Kirsch, does a "happy dance" article celebrating his own Health Care for America Now campaign for health care reform, whose outcome of course was the wonderful bill legislated by the Congress last Spring. Kirsch, who is now a Senior Fellow at The Roosevelt Institute, posted his latest happy dance at The Nation, whose "liberal media bias" was nowhere in evidence near his article. Read below the fold...

I apologize for bloghogging - two in one day! - but I'm going out of town for a couple of days, so there!
I just love Jim DeMint, in the way you love it when your head stops banging against a wall. The heroic Senator of the Fuck You, America Party has been holding up the appointment hearings of one Erroll Southers, whom Barack Obama nominated in September to head up the TSA. DeMint's bogus reason for the hold is that Southers might unionize the TSA, and as all of us Raygun fans know, that would simply never do! (They might end up with "Cadillac" health plans or something!) Read below the fold...

Bernie Sanders' appearance on The Ed Show, was a sad one for me to see, because he tried to explain his joining the Democrats in voting for cloture on the Senate's health care reform bill in two ways. Read below the fold...

The solid front of Democratic Party progressives supporting the Senate's health care form bill, has now cracked wide open with Howard Dean's call to kill the Senate bill and start over in the House with reconciliation. Read below the fold...

Reid on stump in Pahrump
A group favoring House Bill HR 676 staked its claim along Highway 160.
HR 676, is the National Health Insurance Act, introduced by Congressman John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., who represents Detroit. Conyers' Web site states the bill's purpose is "to ensure that every American, regardless of income, employment status, or race, has access to quality, affordable health care services."
According to organizer Margery Kay Behrens, who has lived in Pahrump for 15 years, "Organizing for America has requested our presence to greet Harry Reid and the tea baggers with signs, banners and 'tea'-shirts in support of HR 676, single-payer health care." Read below the fold...

This stimulus act isn’t all it should be, maybe five-eighths of a loaf, but it is better on close examination than first appearance and media reports had suggested. Read below the fold...

Oh, Harry, Harry, Harry...
Reid told reporters in Las Vegas on Tuesday that New York “has a history of sending stars to the Senate.” He cited Kennedy’s late uncle, Robert Kennedy, and Clinton as examples.
Um, Harry, those two actually RAN for the office. They didn't jump to the front of the line.

Scum. Primary challenges needed:
Some House Democrats were prepared to support immunity, regardless. In a Jan. 28 letter, 21 Democrats in the conservative Blue Dog Coalition sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., supporting [retroactive] immunity and listing other provisions that they believed were needed in a FISA bill.

Okay, maybe it's only one cheer.
A provisional cheer at that, although I'm inclined to make that two provisional cheers.
What I'd like to suggest, no doubt to the consternation of most readers, is that Reid's decision to pull the FISA bill Monday evening was pretty much what Reid had in mind the whole time.
What I'm sure of is that the many comments I've read that characterize what happened on the Senate floor on Monday as Reid having been forced to pull the bill by Chris Dodd's threat of a filibuster simply don't match what I saw, via C-Span's live streaming. Read below the fold...
