I was watching it on the News tonight. Senate Republicans killed this bill because they will do anything to hinder any progress. They are so hades bent on defeating Obama they don't care who gets hurt. Several senior Republicans helped write this bill, and then voted against it. I have always believed strongly in each party keeping the other in check, but it has gotten to the point Republicans would destroy the country just to hurt Obama. Is paying the same percentage in taxes as the working man worth all this. I know they love to spout how it class warfare, that it is an attack on the rich to ask them to pay the same percentage in taxes. Well I agree it is class warfare, but not the way they want it to look, it is against the working man. They also love to pick at the elderly and disabled. Get rid of welfare and let the bums starve. The hypocrites don't have any problem with corporate welfare though, and think they deserve every penny. Basically so out of touch with reality it is time the people send them a clear message with their vote. I have never voted straight ticket, and didn't vote for Obama the first time, but will vote straight Democrat until some changes are made within the Republican Party. I hate this war on Coal, but shutter to think of how it will be with the same war under Romney and his attack on welfare and the elderly. The saddest part is these same republicans want to send billions in aid to other countries to feed their poor, but want to let their own people starve.

The Senate is controlled by Democrats. The House is controlled by Republicans. The Dems have enough of a majority in the Senate to pass anything they want. After that, then it goes to the Republican controlled House.
