Less than a day after meeting with President Obama, the entire Senate Rethug contingent has signed a letter vowing to filibuster any Democratic legislation unless Bush tax cut extensions for the wealthy are voted first. At midnight last night, unemployment benefits lapsed for two million Americans, thanks to Rethuglican obstruction. The new START treaty, which has been supported by former Dem and Rethug Secretaries of State, is being held up by Rethug refusal to give Obama a "victory" of any kind -- even if it adversely impacts national security.

Sadly, if you think their obstruction is intolerable now, wait until the next Congress is seated in January.
