HAPPENING NOW: A Real* Filibuster


No anonymous hold. No kabuki dance. No threats.

Just Bernie Sanders, standing on the floor of the Senate for five hours already and still going strong, talking about job creation, tax policy, and why he thinks the Obama compromise plan is wrong.

Watch it here on CSPAN.

*I’ve edited the title to include the asterisk because Sanders is holding a “mock” filibuster, because the bill he would be blocking isn’t actually under consideration at the moment. ┬áBut he’s still holding up the Senate and talking non-stop to make the statement…and probably to show he’s ready to do it again for real if he has to.
