Elizabeth Edwards Funeral

Elizabeth Edwards Funeral, Face tax reduction achieved by Obama and the Republican Congress has created some strange bedfellows on Capitol Hill. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, which describes itself as “democratic socialist”, has threatened to filibuster the deal that would, among other things, to preserve all the tax cuts of the Bush era for two years and extend unemployment benefits until the end of 2011. “I’ll do what I can see that 60 votes were not acquired to pass this legislation,” Sanders told MSNBC’s Ed Shultz on Tuesday.

Sanders said the agreement was a bad policy and bad politics. “I think it’s an absolute disaster and an insult to the vast majority of American people to talk to give huge tax breaks for the wealthy of this country, driving up our deficit and increase the growing gap between rich and everyone else, “says Sanders. Sanders and other liberals who have expressed strong opposition to extending tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans seem to have the American people, meanwhile, says a new poll released Wednesday by Bloomberg.

The survey, conducted before, during and after the negotiations, shows that 35 percent support keeping rates low for higher wages, while nearly 70 percent in favor of a permanent extension of tax relief for Americans MICs. More than a quarter of his hand, want to see all the cuts expire at the end of the month as planned.

During his news conference Tuesday the president said he recognized the public was on his side in the debate. “This is not a situation in which I failed to convince the American people of the rightness of our position. I know the polls. The polls are on our side on this,” Obama said, adding that he was not willing to see tax cuts for middle class “hostage to tax cuts upscale.”

Efforts by Sanders to block the measure could also get support from an unexpected ally in the Senate, the South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint. Favorite Tea Party announced Tuesday during an appearance on conservative Hugh Hewitt’s show he would oppose closing a vote to allow the operation to come to the floor debate and a vote on final passage if the was able to clear the procedural hurdle.

The South Carolinian said his “biggest problem” with the compromise is that it is not permanently extending the tax cuts. “[W] E does not need a temporary economy, which means that we do not need a temporary tax rate,” said DeMint.

DeMint also reserved some criticism of the proposal for the Republican leaders who negotiated the agreement. “I do not question my direction, but frankly, I think we have come away with a lot better than that,” DeMint argued.

Minnesota State Representative and Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer is planning Wednesday to concede the close election for the top job of the state to former Senator Mark Dayton.

Dayton had a lead of nearly 9,000 votes on election night, but that was in the margin that triggered an automatic recount. Like telling seemed to have little impact on the total votes and the state Supreme Court ruled against Emmer in the way the recount should go forward, it became clear that challenging the election results before courts may prove futile.
Emmer will make his announcement at his home in Delano, Minnesota at 11:30 EST. Its concession ends the only outstanding governor of the race left the country since the mid-term elections. It also prevents probable presidential candidate Gov. Tim Pawlenty, R-Minn. To serve beyond the end of his term on January 3 and working with a new Republican controlled legislature. But we must make frequent visits to Iowa everything easier for Pawlenty. Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards for vice, died Tuesday at his home in Chapel Hill, NC she was surrounded by family and friends. She struggled against cancer intermittently since 2004. The funeral service is planned for this weekend.
