EFCA Political Note
"We will do everything we possibly can to get every Republican on board," the senator said."We're even working on Arlen," the senator said, referring to Pennsylvania's Sen. Specter, a reliable ally of labor unions. A few Democrats, the senator said, will be targeted.It will be interesting indeed if they can get Specter on board.
The article headline is of course a reference to the 60 votes that it takes to break a filibuster in the Senate.
My current thought, some version of EFCA passes, but not the current one and probably not as soon as first feared. That and $3 will get you some sort of latte at Starbucks.
