It’s going to be interesting if anything will get accomplished during the Lame Duck sessions. It appears that Demint would be willing to compromise on extending the tax cuts for 2 or more years for everyone, if President Obama is not willing to make them permanent.
In regards to earmarks, it appears that more Senators are signing up on the ban earmarks bandwagon. According to the Washington Independent,
With the pressure mounting before the vote on earmarks in tomorrow’s Republican Conference meeting, a growing number of senators are coming out with statements in favor of Sen. Jim DeMint’s (R-S.C.) proposed moratorium on the practice.At this point, there are 19 Senators committed to voting on a earmark moratorium tomorrow. There is an active list HERE. That list s updated as more Senators make up their minds.
Here is someone else that agrees that there should be a ban. Care to sign a petition? Just click below:
Is it just me, or have Mitt Romney and Jim DeMint been agreeing with each other more and more lately?
