Surprise! Team Obama Doesn’t Want Senate Voting On Obama Fiscal Cliff “Plan”

First we had Harry Reid, Democrat Majority Leader in the US Senate, refusing to allow any vote on Obama’s fiscal cliff tax ‘n spend plan, calling it a “stunt”. Following that we get

(National Journal) The White House on Thursday dismissed as political mischief Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer to bring President Obama’s fiscal cliff plan to a vote on the floor, conceding the proposal would not receive the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster.

“We don’t have 60 votes in the Senate,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said, adding the White House was “very confident” that Democrats support the principles outlined in Obama’s plan, which has met with derision among Republicans.

Carney called McConnell’s Wednesday challenge “the kind of political games that aren’t serious.”

Interesting. The only people who would filibuster Obama’s “plan” would be …… Democrats!

The GOP wants a vote on the “plan” in order to force Democrats to go on the record as to their support for said “plan”. Both Reid and Obama understand that it would be very embarrassing for Obama’s “plan” to receive few, if any, votes from Democrats, which would expose (NMP) Obama’s position as being extreme and economically foolish. And the plan is foolish. It fails to address the underlying issue of the US government spending too darned much while simply scapegoating upper middle class people and higher. And adding more spending.
