Mary Landrieu's Principled Opposition

Regarding her health care vote:
“I have leverage now, I’m using it to the best of my ability, I’m going to use it on the Senate floor,”
Greg Sargent:
But it’s interesting to note how comfortable these Senators are in revealing that they’re mainly holding out on a simple vote to debate the bill in order to increase their leverage. It’s a measure of both their power and of how casually we’ve come to accept Senatorial self-aggrandizement and the perversions of the process that attend it.
We seriously need to abolish the senate.
