    Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) will force readings of both the New START Treaty and the 2011 omnibus spending bill on the Senate floor, a move that could eat up over 70 hours of the remaining lame-duck Congress, The Hill reports.

    "DeMint's maneuver will no doubt cause a headache for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) as he figures out how to fit all of the remaining legislative items into the waning days of the lame duck. Lawmakers had been set to leave Washington on Friday, but that deadline appears flimsy at this point. Reid had sought to avoid working the week of the Christmas holiday, as lawmakers had done last year, and has now threatened work after the holidays if necessary."

    White House statement: "This is a new low in putting political stunts ahead of our national security, and it is exactly the kind of Washington game-playing that the American people are sick of."

    4. Just...to be a prick.
    I'd love to see them force emergency legislation through to eliminate the reading requirement from Congress, the tell POS DeMint to STFU.
    And then you'd be crying about this when Republicans used it.

    5. This is a prime example of what is wrong with the Democratic party. The message should be
    the repubs are playing politics with our national security. If enough of the Dems went on camera, sent out press releases - it just might make it to the msm on other channels besides Msnbc.

    It's time for these assholes to be "Dixie-Chicked".

    This is bullshit.
    Personally, I think making sure the American people knows what is in a treaty that will affect National security, is better for national security.

    ...and find out it's about a Republican.

    Thank you.
    Don't worry Skinner, your cash cow isn't going anywhere. These troglodytes have no life outside of DU.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Ah 70 less hours of vacation time. 70 hours less 'lawmaking'. 70 HOURS MORE OF DOING THEIR JOB!


    Some have all retirement to make upfor the lost time

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
