Fail: Obama’s Buffett Rule doesn’t get through Senate

If Obama’s agenda is so great, why can’t he get anything through the Democrat controlled Senate?

The Senate rejected consideration Monday of the “Buffett rule ,” a key election-year Democratic initiative that would impose a minimum tax rate on those making more than $1 million per year, as a philosophical debate over taxes that will define this year’s elections occurred on Capitol Hill.

Democrat(ic) initiative? The WaPo is trying to give Obama cover, this is his initiative.

This is a loser proposition, just like Obama’s  ‘budget’ that went down in flames less than a month ago.

    It’s interesting that the Left chose a leader they don’t want to follow. Obama is a one-man-show. He seeks no council from congressional leaders. Not even the ones with “D” after their name.

      Yep, Obama is looking weaker and weaker. Even to politicians in his own party.
