At what point do we stop calling these assholes “Democrats”?
Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, a moderate Democrat who’s facing a tough reelection next year, said he’ll take a look at the latest jobs proposal — a $60 billion package to help rebuild aging infrastructure — but continues to have concerns about the fact that these bills have been funded by raising taxes on the rich. [...]
Earlier this month, Nelson and Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) joined all Republicans in voting to filibuster President Barack Obama’s sweeping $447 billion jobs package. A week later, Nelson, Lieberman and Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) joined Republicans in blocking debate on a $35 billion bill for state aid to pay for teachers, police officers and firefighters — Democrats’ first effort to break the jobs package into individual pieces.
And don’t even get me started on Joe Lieberman who caucuses with the Democrats.
This whole thing about how Democrats “had control of Congress” for the first two years of the Obama administration is a complete myth with jerks like these guys in office.
