Senate Democrats Overcome GOP Filibuster of Small Business Bill:
Senate Democrats today overcame a summer-long Republican filibuster of a bill to jumpstart job growth by providing small businesses with a $30 billion lending fund and around $12 billion in tax relief.

The vote to end debate on the small business measure was 61-37, paving the way for it to obtain final passage in the Senate later this week.
So, the Democrats have finally won a long battle against Republicans to pass financial legislation straight out of the Republican playbook, which the Republicans have been filibustering because it was Obama's idea but the Democrats have been championing because they are stupid. Or something.

We are living in a cuckoo clock.
