Symbolism huh?

So it appears that Senate Dems are set to hold symbolic votes on START,DADT,extension of unemployment benefits and extension of middle class only tax cuts,knowing GOPs will block them and intending to make the GOP pay a political price at some point. After the symbolic votes Senate Dems will cave into Republican demands and get little or nothing for it in exchange. I've got news for them about who is gonna pay a bigger political price. These are fights worth fighting.

I live in the Houston area and I'm a lifelong Democrat,very progressive on most social issue and moderate on economic and foreign policy issues. I recognize that most social issues are economic issues too. I was a Hillary supporter in the 2008 primary campaign but enthusiastically supported and donated to Barack Obama after the dust settled.
