Day596 Monday 04/16/12

ran 4.4 miles
The Buffett Rule, a Democratic move to force a 30% tax rate on all households earning more than $1 million per year, failed to pass in the Senate today. For the legislation to pass it required sixty votes to end debate but only garnered fifty-one votes. 

Laws with this much gravity are not going to be passed this close to the election and the vote was nothing more than posturing and pointing fingers among Republicans and Democrats. Both sides walk away from the Senate vote with talking points to campaign on for their upcoming re-election races and Barack Obama now has on record another account proving that Republicans would rather have you drinking dirty water and breathing dirty air. He will argue that Republicans mistreat women and the elderly; that they care little for your wellbeing. He will cast them as generally greedy, heartless, Constitutional fanatics who cling to their guns and religion---among many other outlandish claims, which serve no real purpose other than to earn votes from utterly uninformed individuals.

242.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day231.
