Sanders 'Filibusters' Tax Deal for 8.5 Hours, Tells Senate: 'We Can Come Up With a Better Proposal' | The Nation

Sen. Bernie Sanders I-VT gave an impassioned 8.5 hour speech from the senate floor yesterday to protest the Obama tax cut surrender. To take headlines away from this President Obama brought out former President Clinton to the White House Press room to give a 30 minute press conference. It seems to have worked with the lamestream press. This raises a lot of concerns about exactly who the President is willing to go to the wall over.
