The Omnibus spending bill failed today. Credit the Tea Party movement and the 21 Democrat senators up for reelection in 2012, who certainly heard from the Tea Party. The media had made this bill look like a done deal. I was very pleasantly surprised that it failed. The current house is a lost cause because all that is left of the Democrats are the gerrymandered progressives and the Black caucus. The Senate is a far different story because those 21 Democrat senators need to start acting like Tea Party Republicans if they want to keep their jobs.
Oh, and the really good news, Obamacare will not be funded in 2011, and the GOP can now defund it.
