A note to buoy my spirits from reader Nefarious Leslie:Hi Hopey. mcjoan says:
The Feingold-Reid Amendment failed this morning, 29-67. Twenty-nine of our Democratic Senators does comprise a majority of the majority party, and is a significant bump from the 11 senators who are actual cosponsors of the bill. It also sent the strong message that many Dems, including the presidential contenders, endorse the idea of cutting funding in principle.I like to think of it the way she does, only because it’s less depressing and focuses on moving forward.-Nefarious Leslie
But the result means that we still have a lot of work to do.
Thanks NL, that helps with the sting.
