Obama and Leadership of Democratic Congress


This article describes some of the issues between Obama and one of his key senators on tax policy. To me that is a petty issue. The real issue is that the Senate put off the tax issue to after the 2010 election and the result was the loss of leverage in negotiating with the GOP. The Republicans decide what is best for them and they vote as a block on almost every issue. Obama does not have that influence over his own party.
