Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Put the Republicans on the Record

The Hill reports:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) lacks the votes to begin debating his targeted jobs bill, according to sources monitoring the legislation.

Reid needs 60 votes to open debate on the $15 billion jobs bill. The vote is scheduled for Monday, when lawmakers return from the Presidents Day recess.

I say FORCE the vote. Make every one of those Republithugs stand up and vote against a jobs bill. And then every Democrat needs to grab a microphone and point out to the country that the Republicans prevented a jobs bill from being passed. Then they should send staff over to C-Span and make sure they have a good clean copy of the tape of them voting NAY and add it to every one of their next campaign commercials and tell their constituients "go ahead and throw me out but look what you'll get."

Harry: Do the party the biggest favor you can. FORCE THE VOTE.
