Senator Bernie Sanders Filibusters

Vermont Senator Sanders is a socialist: Self confessed.

He's filibustering tax cuts right now—seen here on a Live Video Feed —from C-SPAN.

I think I disagree with every economic policy position Senator Sanders holds. But I have to give him this: The guy has heart.

I don't have any deep thoughts to share here.

Except the obvious: Raising taxes during a fragile recovery sounds like an appallingly bade idea.

Res ipsa loquitur.

Notwithstanding all that—Big Picture—Democracy is lovely to behold: Capra would be proud.
