Breaking News - Senate Votes to Block Defense Spending Bill

The U.S. Senate has just failed by a 56-44 vote to stop a threatened filibuster of the defense spending bill. 60 votes were needed to block the filibuster which has been threatened because of a provision in the bill that would allow oil exploration in ANWR.

The next time you think about the United States being dependent upon foreign oil, write a thank-you note to one of the senators who just ensured that we will continue to be dependent upon foreign oil.
