Breaking: Reid To Force Senate Into All-Night Session Tuesday

harry_reid_job1.jpg It looks like Harry Reid heard our call....

Republicans are being obstructionists and it's about time Harry is doing his job. Good for him...

Bob Geiger has the details:

In making this move (based on my understanding of Senate rules), Reid is invoking the provisions of Rule 22 (Precedence of Motions) of the Standing Rules of the Senate, which provides, at the Majority Leader's discretion, up to 30 hours of debate if a filibuster is initiated -- as the Republicans will most certainly do, knowing that Reed-Levin may very well have the 51 votes needed for passage.
