Let 'em filibuster

So the Republicans are holding up the stimulus bill that aims to help the economy - in other words to help US. What can the Dems do?

I say force the Republicans to make good on their word, force them to filibuster.... start a filibuster count up 'day 12 of the Republican filibuster....' etc. Put the pressure and attention where it belongs, on the minority of obstructionists who are holding up the business of the majority party.

The Dems should not be pressured to water down their goals with more snake-oil schemes that got us in this fix in the first place. Like a bully, better to face down the Repugs now then let them gain confidence. Do it!
