So Much for GOP Accusations of Partisan Stonewalling in the Senate

Big Business expects minority Republicans to filibuster Democratic legislation (as if these Dems have stones!):

“Companies caught in the Democrats’ cross hairs, such as oil and drug firms, are hiring Democratic lobbyists, but they’re holding on to their Republican lobbyists. They reason that they will need to persuade Republican lawmakers to block bills they dislike in the Senate, where 60 out of 100 votes are required to pass anything of consequence. Democrats hold only a 51 to 49 majority.”
