According to CSPAN, a vote will happen sometime around 4pm Eastern.  A couple of days hardly seems like much of a debate on a budget deal; or am I crazy?  Why would one possibly want our Senate to thoroughly debate and justify such a bill, laden as it is with a procedural change that will give the majority party the ability to change taxing and spending virtually at will?  What could possibly go wrong?

I’m keeping an ear, and sometimes two eyes on the Senate today.  Evidently I have a high tolerance for intellectual malaise.
