    Thanks for the info. I wonder if they even tried to deal with the tax cut issue then, or were too many Democrats afraid to touch anything with the word “tax” attached to it? If they couldn’t muster 60 votes, that would have been the time for Obama to go on the road and do town hall speeches in the states of recalcitrant Democrats and even a few Republicans who might have been persuadable…pushing his “Obama tax cuts” agenda which would not have included the top 2 percent, or the estate tax, or capital gains…what a lost opportunity. Very sad.
