Republican Senators Pledge To Block All Legislation Until Tax Cuts Are Extended

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell told the Senate body that all 42 Senate Republicans have signed a pledge to block all legislation until the tax cuts are extended.

That letter was delivered to Harry Reid who has been more concerned about passing the food safety bill (likely to fail in the House due to a constitutional error), the DREAM Act, and football.

Although the Democrats have a majority in the Senate, even if they all vote in favor of Reid’s agenda they still will need at least two Republican votes for passage. We will see who blinks first, but this is a good Republican move to force the issue before time runs out!
