Rape Crisis Centers On High Alert

Looks like the core Democrat constituencies the bill was aimed at are going to need to find another teat. This sow's full.

President Barack Obama’s jobs agenda hit another roadblock in the Senate on Thursday night, as the two parties remained locked in a bitter stalemate with the economy sputtering and tens of millions looking for work.


A united GOP Conference, along with three members of the Senate Democratic Caucus — Sens. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) — voted 50-50 to block a debate on the package, which would have been funded by a 0.5 percent surtax on those earning more than $1 million

Somewhere right now Hedley Lamarr Joe Biden is workin' up a number 6.
