And, as I predicted, McConnell doesn’t have the votes to sustain a filibuster of the financial regulatory reforms and he’s just punked out. The only way the Party of No strategy can work long-term is if McConnell can maintain absolute party discipline. But since Scott Brown has been seated, health care reform passed, McConnell lost the cloture vote on the Jobs Bill, on extending unemployment insurance, and now he’s knows that he will lose on the financial bill if tries to filibuster. I don’t think this is how things were supposed to go for the Republicans.
