Journo-list Greg Sargent is worried about the White House being undermined by house democrats on Iran.
Strangely enough he seems less worried about Iran undermining the deal but it’s not like the priority is to actually stop Iran, as it was to have a “deal” that LOOKS like it stops Iran.
But hidden within that piece is an Important little tidbit that says a lot about the actual state of affairs in DC
If the GOP-controlled House passes something with the support of someone like Hoyer, it could make it harder for Senate Dems to resist pressure to act.
and THAT is the story of the democrat control of the Senate over the last 3 years. The story that the media has done its best not to tell.
Over and over the House has acted, over and over the Senate didn’t vote
When the house passed budgets the senate didn’t vote…until Obama was re-elected.
During the shutdown bi-partisan bill after bi-partisan bill passed the house and the senate didn’t vote.
Just last month the Upton Bill passed with 39 democrats voting yes, and the senate didn’t vote
The question isn’t if Reid wouldn’t win these votes, odds are he would have won most of them, but Reid isn’t worried about winning votes, he’s all about making sure no democrat has to make any decision that the American people might hold them accountable for
but bipartisan movement in the House could intensify the pressure on him to allow a vote on something the White House doesn’t want.
The end of the filibuster was sold as something necessary to allow thing to proceed in the Senate but the truth is for Democrats in general and Harry Reid & the White House in particular Senate inaction has always been a feature, not a bug.
At least as long as Barack Obama is in the White House that is.
Update: This is exactly what Stacy was talking about this weekend
Scarcely had Bill Clinton finished the oath of office before he embarked on a series of left-wing initiatives that he had perhaps promised in various speeches or policy papers, but which I — relying on the news media’s depiction of the campaign — had not realized were part of his agenda.
And just remember Fox News Channel didn’t come into existence until October of 1996. and even now it only represent 11% of the total news audience.
