>Stall ball and the Iraq Occupation Resolutions

>It’s all beginning to make more sense now, thanks to Bob Geiger’s article in the Huffington Post. [HP] The Republicans in the Senate, including our very own John Ensign (R-NV) will stall the Minimum Wage bill thus protracting the time before they’ll have to vote on the Iraq occupation resolutions. Geiger quotes Nevada Senator Harry Reid on the GOP strategy: “If they defeat cloture on minimum wage, they think we’re going to bring this right back? Oh, no we’re not. We’re going to move to another subject they don’t like to talk about: escalation of the war in Iraq… they know when minimum wage is finished, we’re going to Iraq.” [Hill] [TK.com]
