Troll the Ancient Yuletide Carol

December 22, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Bob Corker knows where he’s going to be on Christmas morning, and it won’t be home with his family.

Democrats will have to put up 60 votes again Tuesday morning for a procedural vote on Reid’s underlying, 2,074-page bill. A last 60-vote hurdle awaits Wednesday, and final passage of the legislation – requiring a simple majority – is set for late Thursday, Christmas Eve, if Republicans take all the available time. As of Monday they said they would.

“I am willing to stay here. The flight that I have is Christmas morning, and I don’t plan on changing that reservation,” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told reporters after a meeting of GOP senators. “We potentially are getting ready to pass a bill that there’s no question in my mind is going to lead to huge deficits down the road.”

Democrats have the 60 votes to break the filibuster. The only difference it makes is whether the vote takes place now or on Thursday, which is Christmas Eve.

Truly, this is the spirit of Christmas.
