Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


It's been two months since the House passed its bill expanding funding for embryonic stem cell research. Yet there's been little action in the Senate to get a vote on the bill, which is expected to pass with bipartisan support.

Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) is now threatening to attach the bill to the appropriations bill for the Department of Health and Human Services if Majority Leader Bill Frist doesn't bring it up for a vote.

Frist may be delaying the bill, because Bush is threatening to veto it. I say let the Senate pass the bill and send it to the president's desk, and let him veto it. It will be one more example of this president representing the interests of the far right-wing rather than the views of the vast majority of Americans.
