    Concerning the tax increases. Most of the actual bill was passed with all 60 Dems having to vote on it together.

    Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

    •  W/ Coakley's loss, weren't there only 59 Dems (0+ / 0-)

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

        Shortly before Brown won, when Paul Kirk was the acting Senator. I believe it was passed on Christmast eve. The reconciliation amendment and the House version passed later, and the bill was finally signed in March of the following year.
