Breaking: Senate vote on Buffett Rule fails, of course; Update: Collins votes yes, Pryor votes no

posted at 7:15 pm on April 16, 2012 by Allahpundit

The vote began at 6:05 ET and as of an hour later they’re still holding it open, so we’ll have to wait for the final tally. The outcome isn’t in doubt but I’m curious to see if anyone from either party crossed the aisle. If ever Democrats could expect a lockstep vote from their caucus it, this is it. New from CNN, the breakdown when adults are asked whether they support a 30 percent minimum tax on people who earn more than a million dollars per year:

Majorities across the board say yes — including among Republicans. Is that enough of a nudge to get squishes like Scott Brown and Lisa Murkowski to vote yay for a lame populist pander that does almost nothing to reduce the deficit? We’ll find out any minute now. My own take on this is that, while swing voters are happy to support higher taxes on the rich when asked, they simply don’t care much. Ask them about jobs and gas prices and their eyes light up; ask them about this and you’ll get a diffident “yeah, I guess.” For a contrarian take, though, read Jazz Shaw’s response this past weekend urging conservatives not to underestimate the powerful appeal of a “fairness” narrative. I personally can’t imagine a scenario where the economy slogs along but voters decide to roll the dice on four more years anyway because O promises to squeeze a few extra pennies out of millionaires, but we’ll see.

Either way, bear in mind that this issue is simply a skirmish in the wider war to come over letting the Bush tax cuts lapse. I’m not sure, in fact, why O bothered with a gimmick like this when he could have spent the last few months making the case for those tax hikes instead. It’s the same basic argument — the rich need to pay their “fair share” — but in that case, he’d at least be able to point to trillions in new revenue to support his position. That is to say, there’s a fiscal argument to be made for killing the Bush tax cuts. The only argument to be made for the Buffett Rule, really, is moral based on an arbitrary definition of “fairness.” Why fight a battle like that on unfavorable ground? Maybe, I guess, just to force the GOP into voting it down so that you’ve got an extra little talking point for the campaign.

While we wait, here’s an RNC tribute to The One’s artistry in excuse-making. Add tonight’s vote on the “Buffett Rule,” a red herring on serious fiscal reform if ever there was one, to this list.

Update: The vote was 51/45. Stand by for the roll.

Update: As promised, here’s the roll. Straight party line — with two very predictable exceptions. Belated exit question: Why didn’t Scott Brown vote yes? Elizabeth Warren’s going to bludgeon him with this. Either he strongly agrees with me that the Buffett Rule is an electoral nothingburger or he’s being a surprisingly loyal party soldier this time.

Democrats gained six Senate seats in 2006, capturing the majority, and for the next two years the unified, energized party used the tactic to defy increasingly unpopular President George W. Bush. The Senate took a record 112 votes to cut off debate in the 2007-08 session, about 18 percent of all Senate votes.

As I stated in a previous post, the bills whichever side they are from should be debated, not just blanket block.

I do not agree with it no matter red or blue blocking them.

Again I will say I do not like it from either side. I think it is wrong. Under Bush every judge should of been given an up or down vote. Not just block all of them.

I do not agree with it. Just because I lean Liberal, does not mean I agree with everything they do or want.

I do not think they should be mandating health care
I do not think they should be bailing out anything and everything under the sun
I do not think they should get involved with the right to have a gun.

I do not thinkk thats a typical democrat.

This is about the most specious argument I have ever read on an anonymous site. If you believe that someone can figure out where your house/apartment by knowing the state you are posting from, you need a lot more professional help than two people need.

I am sure besides the state of confusion, you reside in one of the 57 or 58 states in these United States.

Im not saying I enjoyed it by any means, but noone knows where my secret undisclosed location is, so I have nother to fear. I can walk to the seven eleven without fear!

I damiantard1967 is still at it.
Here’s what that troll does:

Throw out a leftist talking point. Gets embarrassed by people much smarter who proves the claim to be false. Then launches next off tangent attack.

I love the link to the site where the GOP is a bunch of authoritarians because we refuse to roll over and play dead for their Constitution destroying socialist agenda.
The left likes to accuse us of what they are guilty of since they can’t face reality (especially about themselves). It’s called projection.

I think he is in DC

burrata on April 16, 2012 at 10:10 PM

Then he’s really dumb. I was thinking Maryland, Delaware or Virginia. Lots of government workers that gives those places a false economy.

The connection with Ken was just too good to pass up.

You know, damian, if you don’t want to provide links or the names of those who threatened you, I suppose we could always contact Ed or AP on your behalf and tell them that you have concerns, that there are posters here who are threatening you.

I mean…you wouldn’t lie about something like that…so you wouldn’t have to worry about being banned yourself or anything.

Blah Blah Blah. Liek I said I do not agree with it from either side. But you want to ignore that I said that.

Not all bills by either party are going to destroy America. They ALL need to be debated, compromised and worked on. If they there is no compromise, then maybe it should die.

But it still should be debated and worked on for Americans as a whole. Not for one side or the other.

Well he did say he was in a state and the level of knowledge exhibited by damian would actually make DC the most likely answer.

This is not the place for it in a public forum.

I believe it was another poster that posed this question to uppereastside, so how much do you get paid by each poster? you are a paid poster aren’t you?

I figured DC as well. It was one of the few places that didn’t get hit so hard by the recession. That is courtesy of your money being spent wasted there.
