Informed Voters

Results of a Pew Poll: Only 26% of Americans know that it takes 60 votes to break a fillibuster.

Only 32% of Americans know that the Senate version of the health care bill was passed without a single Republican vote.

Speaking of Republican votes. Today, every Republican senator voted against re-establishing pay-as-go. These are the guys that are so concerned about deficit spending.

UPDATE: Concerning restablishing pay-go Steve Benen says: "Republican obstructionism has reached the level at which they oppose ideas they support."
