Watch A Real-Life, Live Filibuster!

Sen. Sanders does some talking

Print Email

You know the tax deal President Obama recently struck with congressional Republicans that you and/or your liberal friends have been complaining about all this week? Well, right now, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Independent from Vermont (and a Jew), is filibustering the deal. And he is doing it old-school: Actually standing up there and saying and reading things, in an unmistakable Brooklyn accent! (He is saying and reading actual things related to the bill; sorta wish he were reading cookbooks and Dickens, Stackhouse-style.)

You can watch on C-SPAN2, because that is the world we live in now.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Bernie should have read this weekend’s Parsha to his Congressional audience. Joseph could have taught them all about fiscal economy and survival of all the people; not just a handful of wealthy.

I’ve said that least 2396426 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

I have looked at a lot of sites and not come across such a site as yours that tells everyone everything they require to know.

Hey there, have you ever previously asked yourself to create regarding Nintendo 3DS handheld?
