Dems Stand Tall In Face Of Rep Ploy

Wage Bill Dies; Senate Backs Pension Shift - New York Times:
"Mr. Frist and his allies in business viewed the wage increase, stretched over three years, as an acceptable trade-off for a permanent reduction in the estate tax and $38 billion in tax breaks and federal aid that constituted the third part of the measure. But they could not overcome intense opposition from Democrats and organized labor."

I wasn't counting on this to happen, but they surprised me this time. Thank you, Democratic senators, for not giving in to Frist's election year shenanigans (this time)! Please keep doing so!
